How do I claim for a deceased person?

Provide documentation that shows your relationship or right to claim, e.g., an obituary or court documents listing you as the representative of the estate. If there is not a valid will or trust, we will follow Utah’s intestate succession rules. If you’re not sure you can claim, or want to claim just your portion, contact our office for help.

Why do I need an obituary when claiming for a deceased person?

The obituary usually lists surviving heirs. This may help in determining your eligibility to claim.

Heirs can claim too!

Lost items reported to the Unclaimed Property Division are held for the benefit of rightful owners, FOREVER. Even when someone dies before collecting their unclaimed property from the state the heirs can claim their portion.

In cases where the sole reported owner is deceased for more than three years and the will was not probated in district court then heirs may collect unclaimed property via Utah’s intestacy (no validated will) rules. These rules are established by the Utah Legislature in Utah Code*.

Understanding all of these various intestacy provisions can be difficult. Many of them are described like a computer program with many “if/then” statements. However, when you find the applicable “if” statements you can see who gets how much of the money. For example:

  • If only a surviving spouse survives the reported owner, that spouse gets 100% of the unclaimed property.
  • If only the children survive the reported owner, they get 100% of the unclaimed property, split equally among them.
  • If both a spouse and children of the reported owner survive:
  • if all the children are also children of the surviving spouse, that surviving spouse gets 100% of the unclaimed property.


As always, we recommend you submit your claim online with any supporting documentation you have to help us validate your right to the money. If we need more information from you we will let you know. Also, if you have any questions feel free to call our office at (801) 715-3300.
