Delaware Unclaimed Property Website Moves

The Delaware Office of Unclaimed Property website has moved to unclaimedproperty.delaware.gov. The basic website and all of its functionality remain the same, and visitors to the old address will be automatically redirected in the short term.

 

“Given the high number of unclaimed property scams we see across the country, we want to increase confidence among owners trying to recover property held here in Delaware,” said State Escheator and Office of Unclaimed Property Director Brenda Mayrack. “With the new domain, users will be able to immediately recognize that they are using an official state website.”  

 

Unclaimed Property holders must now file all reports via the website. The Office of Unclaimed Property no longer accepts filings on paper or other digital media. Holders (inclusive of most business entities, except banking organizations and insurance companies) who must comply with the state’s approaching March 1, 2019, spring reporting deadline should note the new website to ensure timely filing of their reports. 

 

All holders must report by uploading a National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA)-compliant file or by using the Manual Online Reporting option. Manual Online Reporting allows holders with only a few properties to enter the property and report details online, and avoid the expense of creating a NAUPA-compliant file.  

 

For technical assistance with Delaware reporting, please see the Updated Holder Reporting guidelines available on the site, or contact Delaware’s Holder Reporting Unit at: escheat.holderquestions@delaware.gov or 302-577-8782, option #2.
