The process begins with a search from our assets information database for outstanding, abandoned, and unprocessed accounts.
Many accounts are left unclaimed for months and even several years. After a thorough search and follow-up, we contact the rightful owner of the outstanding account. Then we gather the pertinent and necessary information to facilitate the claim for payment on behalf of the owner.
Unclaimed Asset Recovery Agreement
The rightful owner is located through our research efforts. The owner may be a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, an heir to an estate, or owner of an outstanding bank account. Whatever the circumstance, we exhaust all efforts until we find the owner of any type of account.
A representative calls the owner or sends a letter and the client signs the “Unclaimed Asset Recovery Agreement” which basically states that the investigator through his/her efforts has located Claimant who may be entitled to the assets in possession of a holder or institution. Claimant agrees that a small investigator fee will be paid upon payment of the claim. We then give the client full disclosure of the nature of the account.
Facilitation and Payment of Claim
A claim is made by the client or by us on behalf of the client depending on his or her discretion. Proof of the account is gathered with all the necessary documents needed to prove ownership. Then the claim package is forwarded to the holder or institution to facilitate the claim. We oversee every aspect of each claim from processing to payment.
Once ownership rights have been established, the claim is reviewed, processed, and approved. We then push for speedy payment of each claim. The check is then mailed to the claimant and we collect our fee.
