Under current law, a person holding funds or escheated property worth at least $50 is required to submit a report to the controller that includes the name and last known address of the owner of any property (except traveler’s checks and money orders). Items valued less than $50 require the nature and identifying number, or a description of any intangible property reported.
AB 212 lowers the aggregate reporting threshold of unclaimed property from $50 to $25. The bill also requires holders to include the name and last known address of the property owner—except traveler’s checks and money orders—if the property is valued at $25 or more.
The bill authorizes the holder to impose a service charge of up to $2 for notices on a deposit, account, shares, or other interest that is valued at more than $2 (lowered from $50).
