To ensure unclaimed property can be returned to its rightful owner, state law requires businesses and government agencies to file unclaimed property reports annually with the Arkansas State Auditor’s Unclaimed Property (UCP) Division.
Businesses and government agencies are required to report and remit unclaimed property by November 1st. Reports and remittances must be received in our office by the last business day in October. Life insurance companies are required to report and remit unclaimed property by May 1st. These properties must be received in our office by the last business day in April.
It is important to our office to make the reporting process easy and efficient for holders. Our website provides holders with the ability to create and submit report(s) online. Our office follows the standard format set out by the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA). If you’d like to submit a manual report instead, the below video explains step-by-step instructions on how to do so:
