There are more than 30,000,000 unredeemed Savings Bonds dating back
to the 1940’s
that have reached final maturity, totaling
approximately $13 billion in unclaimed
assets. Legislation has been introduced
that establishes a system for returning
this property back to its rightful owners.
This initiative will require many complex
steps that will include a massive review
of old ownership records in order to validate
addresses, deliver bond records to the correct
states, and locate owners.
Here to learn more about the Abandoned Property Escheat Assignment &
Reporting System (APEARS®, US Patent no. 7,788,187),
an automated system that will facilitate the identification,
verification, and reunification effort.
New information will be posted to this
site as it becomes available, including resources
for corporations looking to assist in
the review & reunification effort,
and for individuals wishing to learn how
to search for lost bonds. In the meantime,
companies interested in pursuing partnership
opportunities, please contact
