Webinar: Handling Dormant Accounts & Unclaimed Property
This webinar will explain the Uniform Unclaimed Property Act and the tools every credit union needs to evaluate its dormant accounts and unclaimed (abandoned) property practices. In addition, you will receive contact information for the unclaimed property administrators in every state. Since escheat laws vary, this webinar will not cover state-specific escheat laws. However, you will be able to find your state-specific escheat laws by using the contact information in the handout.
