Harrisburg – December 21, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — This holiday season, whether you are Ellen Naughty from Canonsburg or Samuel Nice of Tamaqua, the Pennsylvania Treasury could have unclaimed property waiting for you, State Treasurer Rob McCord said today as he highlighted holiday-themed names in his department’s online unclaimed property database.

“There are 100 ‘Gifts’ in our unclaimed property database, but this holiday season, we want to return unclaimed property to as many Pennsylvanians as we can,” Treasurer McCord said. “After all, even if your name is not as seasonal as Daniel Yule of Nescopeck or Terry Claus of Glenshaw, you still have a one-in-10 chance of finding property in your name at”

Treasurer McCord encouraged Pennsylvanians who recognize a name on this list to call Treasury’s Return Team at 1-800-222-2046. Anyone can search for unclaimed property and initiate a claim online via Treasury’s database at

The Treasurer dispelled the notion that only individuals can have unclaimed property. Treasury’s unclaimed property database contains the names of many businesses – like Holiday Construction Company in Rosemont and Evergreen Auto Body in Franklin – and organizations such as the AZA Menorah Chapter in Philadelphia.

Generally speaking, unclaimed property is any financial asset that has been left with a business or government agency without activity or contact for at least one year. Common forms of property reported to Treasury each year include abandoned bank accounts, forgotten stocks, uncashed checks, and contents of safe deposit boxes.

Since January 2009, the McCord Treasury has collected more than $843 million in property, returned more than $394 million to rightful owners, and generated about $449 million for the state’s General Fund through the Unclaimed Property Program. Overall, there is $1.9 billion in Treasury’s online unclaimed property database available to claim.
