Kentucky is now using the search engine to determine whether any funds have been escheated to the state that belong to you.

Bankers know how to handle customer funds that need to be escheated to the state, but do you know how to claim funds that are due to you from an escheatable account? This could be anything from overpaid utilities, early termination of contracts or a forgotten bank account. Kentucky Bankers Association has performed a few random searches and discovered that there are abandoned property owed to them.

When you search for an individual, if you get no results, you might want to try the search with just the last name. When looking for a business just put the first word or words of the name in the "last name" field. Leave the first name empty. The social security number is needed in order to verify identity, but it is a secure site.
