Treasurer reminds Vermonters to search for missing money on National Unclaimed Property Day 

National Unclaimed Property Day is this Wednesday, Feb. 1 and the state is partnering again with the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA) to remind Vermonters to search for and claim their missing money.  

The Treasurer’s Office currently holds $119 million of unclaimed property. In 2022, the office paid out over 15,000 claims totaling over $5.3 million that went back into the pockets of Vermonters.        

 “Our staff works tirelessly to return unclaimed property to its rightful owner, and with over $100 million held by our office, I encourage Vermonters to take a few minutes this week to check our website and see if money is waiting to be returned to them,” said Treasurer Mike Pieciak. “The average claim last year was over $400 and our staff stands ready to make the process of reclaiming your money quick and easy.”  

 You can search online at or call the Unclaimed Property Division at (802) 828-2407 or toll-free in Vermont at 1-800-642-3191.
