Unclaimed Property

It’s money that could be yours. Every year, thousands of dollars go unclaimed in New Brunswick, forgotten in credit union accounts, uncashed cheques, security deposits, and more.

The Financial and Consumer Services Commission operates New Brunswick’s Unclaimed Property Program. We work with businesses and government entities to return unclaimed property to its rightful owner. 

Money and monetary property can become unclaimed property due to lack of communication between businesses and government agencies and owners. Under New Brunswick’s Unclaimed Property Act (Section 4), money and monetary property are considered to be unclaimed if no activity has occurred for three years (10 years for credit union accounts).

Unclaimed property holders

New Brunswick’s Unclaimed Property Act requires businesses and other entities holding unclaimed property to participate in the program. The program relieves them of the expense and liability of carrying the property on their books. The Commission then holds these unclaimed funds until they are claimed by the rightful owner or someone acting on the owner’s behalf.
