Unclaimed Money

Each year in Victoria millions of dollars lose contact with their rightful owners. These funds are lodged with us while they wait to be claimed.

Unclaimed money includes share dividends, salaries and wages, rents and bonds, debentures and interest, unpresented cheques and trust moneys.

We also hold unclaimed winnings from Tattslotto, Intralot and TAB tickets bought in Victoria which have remained unclaimed for six months or more.

26,765 claims processed for unclaimed money in 2015-16, up 4% from 2014-15
$17.18 million returned back to rightful owners, up 17.5% from 2014-15
