Finder Registration

Pennsylvania state law requires that all "Finders" and property recovery professionals who assist potential claimants assemble a claim for a fee must complete an application and be certified as a finder by the Pennsylvania Treasury. Like much of the Unclaimed Property law, this process is designed to protect consumers from predatory practices and fraud. While Pennsylvania Treasury always assists claimants prepare and file claims for free, Finders may provide their services for a fee. Those fees are now capped at 15% through Pennsylvania law.
