The State Government’s Office of State Revenue has more than 530,000 unclaimed amounts of money – worth over $220 million – and some of it might belong to you!
The money is sent to the Office of State Revenue by private enterprises, government agencies, local councils and State Trustees who have not been able to locate and return the money to the owners.
NSW Minister for Finance, Services and Property Dominic Perrottet said finding out if it was yours is quick, free and easy.

“If it’s your money, we want to reunite you with it, and doing a free search on [the Office of State Revenue] website couldn’t be easier,” Mr Perrottet said.
The website allows you to view the name of the unclaimed money owner, the type and source of fund and, if available, the owner’s last known address.
In the last 12 months the Office of State Revenue has paid approximately 9000 claims worth almost $17.5 million.
