Description

Before a holder can report and remit unclaimed property to the state of the owner's last known address, very specific due diligence requirements must be fulfilled. Most states require that the holder attempt to contact the owners to give them one last opportunity to claim the property before it is turned over to a state unclaimed property office.

In that each state has its own due diligence requirements, performing effective due diligence which adheres to all the states' various requirements can be challenging. This teleconference will include an overview of state due diligence requirements, tips on performing effective due diligence and methods by which you can reduce the number of unclaimed items requiring due diligence.
