AUSTIN, Texas - The Unclaimed Property Division has rolled out a new-and-improved website for people to use to search for any unclaimed money.

Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar wanted to remind Texans about the site, especially considering it’s the holiday season.

"I am proud of our unclaimed property program, which has returned about $800 million to its rightful owners since I've been comptroller," Hegar said. "The newly redesigned website makes it even easier for users to search for unclaimed property, and I encourage everyone to go online, take a look around and see if there is money waiting for you or your loved ones."

ClaimitTexas.org offers several new features, including an enhanced search function, the ability to upload claim documentation directly and a better experience for those using their mobile devices.

Since the program's inception in 1962, the state has returned more than $2 billion in unclaimed property, according to a news release. In fiscal 2017, the agency paid a record $281 million in claims.

You can also call 800-321-2274 (CASH) to see if you have property.
