Comparing Unclaimed Property Laws

Question: All 50 states have laws that apply to Unclaimed Property. In recent years, some states have added exemptions for certain types of property, such as retail gift certificates. I am looking for a Web site (or another source) that shows exemptions to the unclaimed property laws in all 50 states.

Barbara Kessler, Find/SVP: The NAUPA Quick Reference Handbook looks like it might have information on exemptions. If it doesn't, I imagine that the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA) would know who maintains such a list.

PH: (859) 244-8150

SEE, The NAUPA Quick Reference Handbook

Anonymous: Lexis/Matthew-Bender publishes a 9-volume set called "Unclaimed Property Law and Reporting Forms," which is also available electronically on LexisNexis.
