Information on the Cash Dash Program:
The Cash Dash program assists people in identifying if they are entitled to unclaimed property which is money or assets that have been separated from their owner for at least five years. Often the owner does not know the property exists. Businesses and banks are required to turn over the unclaimed accounts to the Treasurer's Office. This program was developed to connect owners to their property.
