It is our position that the Indiana Attorney General’s office is helping Hoosiers by uncovering millions of dollars in unclaimed funds. Beneficiaries of long-forgotten insurance policies may soon be able to recover proceeds they may not know even existed. Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s office has recently uncovered $18,026,392.08 in unclaimed property through agreements with some of the nation’s largest life insurance providers. The funds were discovered as a result of an audit performed on behalf of Indiana and other states. According to the Attorney General’s office, these initial funds are only a portion of the proceeds that are expected to be uncovered.
These unclaimed properties belong to Hoosiers who may have forgotten details, misplaced a policy or not even known they were listed as a beneficiary on the account of their friend or relative. So far, Indiana has received more than 20,000 unreported insurance accounts from the audits. The Office of the Attorney General helps protect the rights, freedoms and safety of Hoosier residents. The process of uncovering unclaimed funds on behalf of Hoosier residents is a free service of the Indiana Attorney General’s office.
Turned over funds to the state are posted online at www.IndianaUnclaimed.gov. The Unclaimed Property Division’s toll free number is 1-866-IN-CLAIM (1-866-462-5246).
