Unclaimed Property Reporting and Filing Instructions Capitol Building Des Moines, IA 50319-0005 Updated 1/2018 Michael L. Fitzgerald 2017 Treasurer State of Iowa Dear Holder, We share a common goal: to provide citizens and customers with excellent service. As part of this goal, my office runs the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt, a program dedicated to reuniting Iowans with their lost or unclaimed property. Any outstanding obligation owed to a person, business, shareholder, investor, employee or customer, among others, is considered unclaimed property. An obligation is deemed unclaimed when there has been no owner contact for a set period of time, generally three years. Unclaimed property includes, but is not limited to, abandoned financial assets such as checking and savings accounts, unpaid wages, securities, life insurance payouts, uncashed checks, deposits, refunds or safe deposit box contents. While your business or organization never wants to lose track of a customer, I want to assure you that if it does happen, my office will work hard to make sure any property belonging to that customer is returned to his or her possession. Your cooperation in this process strengthens our trusted relationship with all past and present Iowans. The Iowa unclaimed property law requires that all businesses review their records each year and report unclaimed assets to the Unclaimed Property Program of the Iowa treasurer's office. This report must be filed on or before November 1 of each year and should include all property that is reportable as of July 1. My goal as state treasurer is to return all property to the rightful owner. Holders of unclaimed property play a vital role in this effort. By being aware of the law and submitting accurate reports, your business takes the first step in reuniting owners with their lost property. We have compiled these instructions to aid you in reporting unclaimed property to the state of Iowa. The treasurer s office is glad to assist you in any way we can. Please do not hesitate to contact our office (phone 515-281-7546 or e-mail We welcome your feedback. Sincerely, Michael L. Fitzgerald State Treasurer Table of Contents Unclaimed Property Property Type Codes/Abandonment Owner Due Delivery of What is unclaimed property, and why should it be reported? Unclaimed property is defined by Iowa Code Chapter 556, which also describes reporting requirements and the operations of Iowa s unclaimed property program. The statute is limited to unclaimed intangible property (financial assets) and does not apply to tangible property (other than the contents of safe deposit boxes and other items left in safekeeping) or real property. Unclaimed property can be represented by an outstanding obligation owed by one party to another, such as an uncashed check or other type of payment. Unclaimed property includes dormant financial assets, such as an inactive savings account, abandoned stock, or other investments. Property is considered unclaimed when the owner has failed to acknowledge the existence of, or claim an asset for a set period of time. For the state of Iowa, this dormancy period is generally three (3) years. Entities with the obligation to report unclaimed property are known as holders. A holder need not physically possess the underlying funds or other asset to be obligated to report and remit the property; rather it is a determination of whether the holder is obligated to the owner to make payment or delivery. The unclaimed property law creates an affirmative duty on the part of holders to contact the owners and attempt to pay or re-establish an active relationship with them. When efforts by the holder to locate the rightful owner fail, the funds must be turned over to the office of the state treasurer, which is then responsible for safeguarding these funds, publicizing the names of the rightful owners, and returning the funds back to the owners as they come forward. Examples of holders Any entity that engages in commerce can potentially generate unclaimed property. A holder means any entity in possession of unclaimed property belonging to another, or indebted to another on an obligation. The unclaimed property law lists specific types of businesses that potentially hold unclaimed property (including financial institutions, life insurers, utilities, and government agencies or subdivisions) but ultimately the law applies to all business associations, wherever located, domiciled, or incorporated, such as a corporation, joint stock company, business trust, partnership, cooperative, or other association for business purposes, whether or not for profit. What Unclaimed Property is Reportable to Iowa? All unclaimed property that is not expressly exempted under Iowa Code Chapter 556, where the owner had a last known address in Iowa, is reportable to Iowa. Additionally, unclaimed property is reportable to the state of Iowa where: The holder is incorporated in the state of Iowa, and the address of the owner is unknown, or the address is in a foreign jurisdiction. The underlying obligation is represented by a money order, traveler s check, or other similar written instrument, which was issued in Iowa. The property consists of safe deposit box contents and the safe deposit box was opened in Iowa (regardless of the last known address of the owner).

Agent For AG A person who is authorized to act for another (the agent's principal) through employment, by contract or apparent authority. Attorney For AF A person who has been qualified by a state or federal court to provide legal services, including appearing in court, and is authorized to act for another. (And) Unspecified Joint Relationship AN Unspecified joint relationship including 'AND'. Beneficiary BF Any person or entity (like a charity) who is to receive assets or profits from an estate, a trust, an insurance policy or any instrument in which there is distribution. Community Property CP Property or earnings received by a husband and wife during marriage, other than by gift, devise, or descent. Separate property is property owned by a spouse before marriage or received during the marriage by gift, devise or descent. In some jurisdictions, earnings from separate property are also separate property and in some jurisdictions, such earnings are community property. Recognized by California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Nevada, Idaho, Washington, Wisconsin, Louisiana and Puerto Rico. Conservator CN A guardian and protector appointed by a judge to protect and manage the financial affairs and/or the person's daily life due to physical or mental limitations or old age. Custodian CF A person with whom some article is left, usually pursuant to a contract (called a "contract of bailment"), who is responsible for the safe return of the article to the owner when the contract is fulfilled. Defendant DF The party sued in a civil lawsuit or the party charged with a crime in a criminal prosecution. Estate ES All the possessions of one who has died and are subject to probate (administration supervised by the court) and distribution to heirs and beneficiaries, all the possessions which a guardian manages for a ward (young person requiring protection and administration of affairs), or assets a conservator manages for a conservatee (a person whose physical or mental lack of competence requires administration of his/her affairs). Executor or Executrix EX The person appointed to administer the estate of a person who has died leaving a will which nominates that person. For Benefit Of FB A person who is entitled to property that is held by another person (typically a custodian or trustee). FB is typically used in trustee, self-directed, inherited, education and transferred accounts. Guardian GR A person who has been appointed by a judge to take care of a minor child (called a "ward") or incompetent adult personally and/or manage that person's affairs. Heir HE Anyone who receives property of a deceased person either by will or under the laws of descent and distribution. (Explanation: a devisee under a will is also an "heir", even though unrelated to the decedent.) Insured IN The person or entity who will be compensated for loss by an insurer under the terms of a contract called an insurance policy. Joint Tenants JT An account held in joint tenancy presumes a right of survivorship, but this presumption can be overcome by evidence that the account was really the property of only one, and the joint tenancy was for convenience. Right of Survivorship is not specifically stated. PAGE 4 Joint Tenants with Rights of Survivorship JS A type of account which is owned by at least two people, where all tenants have an equal right to the account's assets and are afforded survivorship rights in the event of the death of another account holder. In this type of account, a surviving member will inherit the total value of the other member's share of account assets upon the death of that other member. All members of the account are afforded the power to conduct investment transactions within the account as well. Tenants in Common TC A type of account which is owned by at least two people with no rights of survivorship afforded to any of the account holders. In this type of account, a surviving tenant of the account does not necessarily acquire the rights (and account assets) of the deceased person. Rather, each tenant in the account can stipulate in a written will how his/her assets will be distributed upon his/her death. Generally, the member ownership in the account is determined on a pro rata basis, meaning that if there are two tenants in the account, each will have a 50% claim on the account's value. Tenants in Entireties JE Joint ownership of property or securities by a husband and wife where, upon the death of one, the property goes to the survivor. (Or) Unspecified Joint Relationship OR Unspecific joint relationship including 'OR'. Other Relationship OT Relationship other than specified in this list. Additional details should be submitted with the property. Payable on Death PD Account is payable on death to an alternate owner. Upon the original owner's death, the beneficiary must supply identification and a copy of the original owner's death certificate. Payee PA The one named on a check or promissory note to receive payment. Power of Attorney PO A written document signed by a person giving another person the power to act for the signer in designated circumstances and with respect to designated property. Explanation: There are both general powers of attorney which give the authorized party broad discretion and special powers of attorney that are limited in scope. Remitter RE Used primarily on official checks. The remitter is the person who purchased the official check. This relationship is separate from the holder who turns the property over to the state. Sole Owner SO Sole owner is used when there is only a single owner for the property, and that person has all rights to the ownership of the property. Trustee TE A person or entity who holds the assets (corpus) of a trustee for the benefit of the beneficiaries and manages the trust and its assets under the terms of the trust stated in the declaration of trust which created it. Uniform Gifts to Minor UG Property that is gifted to a Minor under the Uniform Gifts to Minors Act-(UGMA). This act allows minors to own property such as securities. Under the UGMA, the ownership of the funds works like it does with any other trust except that the donor must appoint a custodian (the trustee) to look after the account. Regardless of whether the minor has reached the age of majority, they should be coded with the UG relation. The custodian on the account should be coded as CU. Uniform Transfer to Minor UT Property that is gifted to a minor under the Uniform Transfer to Minors Act-(UTMA). This act allows a minor to receive gifts such as money, patents, royalties, real estate and fine art, without the aid of a guardian or trustee. The gift giver or an appointed custodian manages the minor's account until the minor is of age (usually 18 or 21). Unknown UN The owner's relationship to the property is not known. Usufruct UF Usufruct is a real right in a property owned by another, normally for a limited time or until death. Simply stated, it is the right to use the property, to enjoy the fruits and income of the property, to rent the property out and to collect the rents, all to the inclusion of the underlying real or naked owner. The usufructuary has the full right to use the property but cannot dispose of the property nor can it be destroyed. PAGE 5 How do you report unclaimed property to our office? Electronic reporting is required in Iowa. Every entity holding unclaimed funds is required to report in the NAUPA II format. The report (NAUPA file) is created using software that can be directly imported into state systems. There is one free software option on our Creating the Report page available for public use. The holder will then send the .hrs or .txt file to our office via our reporting portal: Property type codes and owner relationship codes Reporting protocols require the coding of property and owners. Property type codes (see page 3) document the nature of the unclaimed asset and are essential for facilitating the return of property to missing owners by the state treasurer s office. Knowing the nature of the property reported assists claimants in establishing their entitlement to the property and allows the state to request the appropriate ownership documentation. Ownership relationship codes (see page 4-5) are necessary especially when there are multiple owners to unclaimed property or where there are special legal relationships concerning the property. Owner relationship codes assist the state treasurer s office in locating the actual owner or owners of property and help ensure that the entities entitled to the property are appropriately paid. Identify the property to be reported beginning June 30th For a detailed listing of types of property subject to reporting, please refer to page 3. Please note any property not specifically identified is nonetheless reportable as miscellaneous intangible property, unless expressly exempted by law. Undertake a final effort to locate owners during July through September Although holders are encouraged to begin contacting owners as soon as their property become inactive, Iowa law requires that you send a final notice letter to the owner at the owner s last known address, unless the value of property is less than $50 or there is no valid address on file. A sample due diligence letter can be found on page 9. PAGE 6 Transfer owner and property information into the NAUPA II reporting software July through September Electronic reporting is required in Iowa. Follow the instructions for the software program and create a draft report. If reporting the contents of safe deposit boxes, a separate report must be filed. Safe deposit boxes are not to be remitted until you have received a notice from the treasurer s office. Exclude the accounts of owners where contact is re-established through the mailing of final notice letters. Iowa Administrative Code Section 781 - 9 was updated in 2017. Please refer to the Iowa Administrative Code for the complete rules. Changes include: 781 (556) Definitions. Indication of interest means an action by an owner with respect to the owner s property which indicates that the owner is aware of the existence of the property and intends for the property not to be presumed abandoned. Examples of an owner s indication of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: an owner-initiated deposit or withdrawal from an account; notification to a holder of a change of address specific to the account; an account balance or similar owner-initiated inquiry, including an account inquiry made electronically in which the owner has contemporaneously authenticated the owner s identity; and any communication, such as written or electronic correspondence, telephone call or person-to-person conversation between an owner and a holder (or the agent of a holder), which can be documented and which reflects an owner s awareness of the existence of the property. Indication of interest does not include recurring Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfers, automated postings to accounts, computer system conversions, the non-return of mail, and other actions that are not owner-initiated or do not require a direct owner response. 781 (556) Dormancy fees and related charges. (2) Dormancy fees not authorized by Iowa Code chapter 556, including but not limited to an escheat fee or other fee sought for the holder s performance of the requirements of Iowa Code chapter 556, are prohibited.

A holder may contract with a third party to hold property, provide payment services and report unclaimed property; however, such arrangements shall not relieve the holder from complying with all requirements of this chapter and Iowa Code chapter 556. The holder remains at all times responsible for the complete, accurate and timely reporting and delivery of property presumed abandoned and other duties as provided for under this chapter and Iowa Code chapter 556.

Statistics show that most individuals and companies can be found if an attempt to locate them is made during the first six months following a change of address. It is important that you keep records of owners last known addresses (even though mail may have been returned by the post office). This information is extremely crucial in our efforts to verify ownership of property. The last known address needs to be included in your report. A holder is not required to make a due diligence mailing to owners whose property has an aggregate value of less than $ Please do not include the unclaimed property division telephone numbers as part of contact information on due diligence letters. Should an owner come forward after you have reported, you may pay the claimant directly and then file for reimbursement from the treasurer s office. Please call our office prior to reimbursement to verify we have not paid the funds out. These letters should be completed by mid-September. You need to provide at least thirty days notice to the owners BEFORE submitting the report to the Treasurer s Office. The treasurer of state may charge a $5 fee to holders for each owner record reported on a report if 35% or more of the accounts are claimed within 24 months of filing the report (please refer to Iowa Code Chapter for specific language).
