Many Idahoans' names, for one reason or another, end up on the state’s unclaimed property list.

People get divorced, they get remarried, they move out of state. And sometimes they don’t leave the bank a forwarding address.

“Unclaimed property” usually doesn’t refer to land or a house. Rather, it’s money — checking accounts, savings accounts, stock dividends, mutual funds and utility refunds — or items stored in a safety deposit box. At times coins, gems, jewelry and stamps are reported unclaimed by hospitals, hotels and financial institutions.

Businesses turn over those assets to the state, which tries to reunite the stuff with its owner — or its heirs.

The Idaho State Treasurer’s Office provided this sampling of 75 people who own unclaimed property valued at more than $100. Their last known addresses are in south-central Idaho.

But many other people are on the list, too. Be proactive by searching your own name at the office’s website. You might be surprised at what you find.
