Unclaimed Property

The 2019 claim deadline has passed

If you filed your claim by the deadline, please note that it may take up to 90 days to process your claim, and if approved, approximately 30 additional days for you to receive payment. This process may take longer under certain circumstances.


Each spring, the City of Sacramento provides notice to owners of record of unclaimed money in the City's possession. The unclaimed property list consists of unclaimed items including uncashed vendor and employee checks and utility account credit balances. Property owners have 60 days from the date of the first publication to submit a valid claim. Unclaimed money will escheat to the City by operation of law if not claimed by the deadline.
