The State of Hawaii Unclaimed Property Program collects and holds abandoned property from Holders ( companies, government agencies, businesses, etc.) This program is administered under the provisions of the Hawaii Unclaimed Property Statutes HRS Chapter 523A.
The State of Hawaii acts as a custodian for abandoned funds and holds these funds in perpetuity. In other words, there is no time limit for claiming these funds from the State.
Unclaimed property is any financial asset that not had any owner-generated activity for an extended period of time.
Unclaimed property commonly includes dormant checking and savings accounts, uncashed payroll checks, stocks, and safe deposit box contents.
Property becomes abandoned when there had been no owner activity related to the account for a specific period of time and when the owner has not been able to be contacted by the holder of that asset.

Unclaimed money finders help reunite people with money being held for them that they didn’t know they had.
In return for getting the money back, finders charge a fee, usually a percentage of the amount that has been returned. It is a great business and a great way of helping people.
