Attached please find Unclaimed Property Publications from 2011 to present.  This list is updated yearly.  You can also find information regarding how to file a claim located on the Unclaimed Property page of Treasury’s website at  

Reports from years prior to 2011 are not readily available and we estimate that it would require approximately 12 hours for search and retrieval of responsive documents and to complete analysis to determine what documents and/or portions of documents would be responsive to your request.  Pursuant to Rhode Island General Laws §38-2-4, we may charge $15.00 per hour (with the first hour free) for search, retrieval and analysis.  If you would like us to undertake this search and retrieval, kindly provide pre-payment in the amount of $165.00 (12 hours x $15.00 with the first hour free).  Please note the time in which our office has to respond to your request is tolled until payment is received.

Please be advised that payment does not guarantee that any additional records will be found or that any records you have requested constitute public records (in whole or in part, i.e. redacted), but only authorizes this office to conduct a search, retrieval and analysis to determine if responsive records exist in whole or in part.  Should actual fees exceed the pre-payment estimate, this office will advise you and seek your authorization before continuing.  Should your pre-payment exceed actual review and analysis, you will, of course, be reimbursed. 

If you contend you have been denied access to public records, pursuant to Rhode Island General Laws §38-2-8, you may appeal this decision to Amy L. Crane, General Counsel for the Rhode Island General Treasurer’s Office, 50 Service Avenue, 2nd Floor, Warwick, RI 02886.  You may also file a complaint with the Department of the Attorney General, 150 South Main Street, Providence, RI 02903 or the Rhode Island Superior Court of the county where the records are maintained.

Additional information regarding the Access to Public Records Act may be found at

Thank you for your interest in keeping government open and accountable to the public.
