Unclaimed Property Best Practices: Dedicated Recordkeeping System and Professional Support

Unclaimed property often is seen as a secondary accounting and compliance concern. As a result, unclaimed property objectives sometimes get shoehorned into the parameters of existing recordkeeping and scheduling technology. Sometimes new technology is purchased to supplement the old. 

  • A regulatory database is simply bolted on to old software
  • Due diligence template letters are dropped into existing customer information systems
  • Customer contacts are noted manually
