Searching for unclaimed money
There are several Commonwealth and State Government offices involved in the administration of the various types of unclaimed money.
The role of most Unclaimed Money offices is to maintain a register of monies lodged with them by Australian businesses, organisations and government agencies.
The public may view most of this information via the Internet and lodge claims where applicable.
Matters administered by Department of Treasury (WA)
The information listed in our Register is all that is known to this office and it is the responsibility of any claimant to provide Treasury with confirmation of their entitlement to any money claimed. Not all monies listed in this Register are held by Treasury - the following On-line Search will provide details on who holds the monies in question.
