Meet Andrea Lea

Dear Arkansans,

My staff and I would like to welcome you to our website.  As your Auditor of State, I am putting my experience to work for you as the state’s general accountant, administrator of the Arkansas Unclaimed Property Act, and payroll officer for more than 600 state employees and elected officials.

I take great pride in the work we do, and one of the greatest sources of that pride is returning that which belongs to you through our Unclaimed Property Division.  UCP’s primary mission is to efficiently and effectively collect, safeguard, and distribute unclaimed property to the rightful owners through prompt and courteous service.  In my first 100 days in office, we were able to successfully reunite more than 10,989 properties to Arkansans at a value of $4,414,389.72, and we’re just getting started.  

To date, more than $280 million in unclaimed assets are waiting to be claimed.  These properties may include: stock certificates, bonds, uncashed payroll checks, utility deposits, bank accounts, content from safety deposit boxes, and more.  I encourage you to search your name or the names of friends and family to see if you or anyone you know has something to claim! You won’t know until you try.

From all of us here at the Auditor of State’s Office, thank you for visiting our site, and please don’t hesitate to contact us if we can ever be of any help to you.
