Representative Roy works with Treasurer Goldberg to connect residents with unclaimed property

Almost two and a half million dollars owed to constituents in Franklin and Medway

Representative Roy joined State Treasurer Deborah Goldberg today (Friday, Dec 20, 2019) to notify his constituents that they may have property in the Massachusetts Unclaimed Property Division. There are almost two and half million dollars owed to residents in Franklin and Medway.

“We currently hold over $3.4 billion in unclaimed property at the Treasury and it could be yours,” said State Treasurer Deborah Goldberg, “I would like to thank Representative Roy for helping the Treasury in our mission to reconnect individuals with their property in Franklin and Medway.”

“I enjoyed working with Treasurer Goldberg to reunite my constituents with their unclaimed property. Since you may be one these individuals with property held by the Treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division, this is your opportunity to get it back,” said State Rep. Jeffrey Roy (D-Franklin). “The faster you file a claim, the sooner you will be reconnected with your money, so please respond right away.”

Each year, the state receives large amounts of unclaimed property, including 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.

This past year, the Division was able to reunite over $125 million with over 115,000 residents, businesses and charities in the Commonwealth.

The Division has a website,, where you can search for property and make claims. This coming year, the Treasury is hoping to return even more money to more citizens.
