You can email your request to [email protected] or call 1-877-829-4732 for more information. Anyone can sign up to receive emails when new lists of unclaimed money are published.

“We want all that money back to San Diego, so tell your friends and family to go to to check the list of unclaimed money, ”McAllister said.

The smallest reimbursement amount available is $ 10 and the highest reimbursement amount is $ 36,699, owed to Fidelity National Title Co. Over the past five years, the office has reimbursed almost $ 520,000.
