Massachusetts State Treasurer Deb Goldberg today announced the latest grouping of names that have been added to the state\u2019s list of unclaimed property owners. Over 46,000 new properties worth millions of dollars are owed to individuals and businesses throughout the Commonwealth, including the band New Kids on the Block and members Jordan Knight and Danny Wood.\n\n\u0022To the New Kids on the Block,\u00a0you got it,\u00a0unclaimed property that is.\u00a0We have theright stuff\u00a0to get you what\u2019s rightfully yours,\u201d said Treasurer Deb Goldberg. \u201cCall our office and begin the claims process today.\u201d\n\n\u201cMy team is prepared to walk you through your claim\u00a0step by step,\u201d said Mark William Bracken, Assistant Treasurer and head of the Unclaimed Property Division. \u201cWe look forward to working with NKOTB and all the Massachusetts residents who have unclaimed property.\u201d\n\nUnclaimed property includes forgotten savings and checking accounts, un-cashed checks, insurance policy proceeds, stocks, dividends, and the contents of unattended safe deposit boxes. Most accounts are considered abandoned and are turned over to the state after three years of inactivity. Last year, Treasury returned over $114 million in property to its rightful owners, making the Commonwealth the state to return the most money on a per-capita basis.\n\nThis newly released list includes only individuals and businesses with unclaimed property over $100 and if you don\u2019t see your name in the paper this weekend,\u00a0hang tough, as these are only the new names. Treasurer Goldberg urged all citizens to check the comprehensive list for all amounts at\u00a0www.findmassmoney.com\u00a0or to call our live call center at 888-344-MASS (6277).\n\nThe full list of the new individuals and businesses added to the unclaimed property list will be published in the Boston Globe on Sunday, September 10 and in the Boston Herald on Sunday, September 17. In addition to these two papers the list of names will be published in over 30 regional and local papers.\n\nThe Treasury releases an updated list of unclaimed property assets every six months as the new accounts are turned over to the Commonwealth. There is no time limit for a person to claim this property and, in many cases, claimants will receive interest.
