NOTICE – Two important changes to holder reporting requirements:
1. Effective July 1, 2019, Louisiana will no longer accept report detail on paper. We take the security and privacy of owner information seriously and creating printed reports, which may contain personally identifiable information, is not a safe method of transmission. Holders are required to submit an electronic report in NAUPA II standard file layout and upload it through the secure portal on our website. Visit the Holder Reporting and Remittance page (“Search for Unclaimed Property” button below) to reach the secure portal and additional resources.
2. Effective July 1, 2019, the Louisiana Unclaimed Property Act provides for the presumption of abandonment and transfer to the Unclaimed Property Division, “Military medals and all associated documents held in a safe deposit box or other safekeeping depository in this state”. Please see Louisiana Revised Statutes, Title 9, Section 155.
