Unclaimed property (UCP) is generally defined as any financial asset that has been left inactive by the owner generally for three (3) years. Examples of unclaimed property include, but aren’t limited to dormant bank accounts, abandoned stocks and dividends, uncashed payroll checks, uncashed accounts payable checks, and customer refunds.
