Unclaimed cash/property from the State
The Massachusetts Treasury has recently announced a list of South Boston and Dorchester residents with unclaimed property, which includes uncashed checks, contents from checking/savings accounts, stocks, dividends, insurance policy proceeds and contents of safe deposit boxes. Sweet!
Anyone currently owed more than $250 dollars will receive a letter with specific instructions on how to claim it. If property is not claimed within three years, it is considered abandoned and turned over to the Commonwealth.
