Maryland Focused on Property
More recently the state has been focused on making sure its residents and those abroad receive property that is legally theirs to claim.
It is important to realize that the property is not real estate, but monetary in nature such as stocks, bonds, wages, refunds, and other types of funds. The total in unclaimed property is worth more than $980 million dollars.
