Frequently Asked Questions/Answers

Category:  US Savings Bonds

HOW DO I CLAIM A SAVINGS BOND THAT IS LISTED IN THE UNCLAIMED PROPERTY DATABASE?

If you are the registered owner of the safe deposit box, you can submit a completed claim form and personal identification to the Department of Revenue to claim the contents. If you are listed as the owner or beneficiary on a bond, you can search your name in our database and submit a claim with all required documentation for your bond(s).  If there are any fees owed to the bank that turned over the safe deposit box (drilling fees and back rent owed), you must pay the fees in full before any property, including US Savings Bonds, can be released to you.​
