From $50 to $10,000: Checks Without Claims Program Unveils Windfall for Unclaimed Funds Nationwide!

The Checks Without Claims program checks range from as little as $50 to a substantial $10,000, catering to a diverse group of potential beneficiaries. The program was initiated due to reports from businesses and organizations that encountered challenges in returning funds to their rightful owners. Unclaimed property typically includes forgotten bank accounts, uncashed checks, tax refunds, credit balances, investment accounts, payroll checks, and refunds, among other sources.

Recipients can anticipate not only a welcome check but also a confirmation letter from Treasurer Tobias Read. He emphasized the Treasury’s commitment to both collecting and safeguarding unclaimed property and, importantly, ensuring the assets are returned to bolster the financial well-being of Oregonians.

Interestingly, this windfall is not limited to residents of Oregon alone. In 2023, the Treasury revealed that 18,000 people in 48 states received checks for unclaimed funds. The state currently holds more than $1 billion in unclaimed funds, making it an impactful initiative with a nationwide reach.
