The Great Colorado Payback is responsible for reuniting Coloradans with their lost or forgotten assets -- and right now there are over 1.7 million people and businesses eligible to claim property.

If you have lost track of a bank account, stock certificate, or a retirement account; misplaced a rebate check, reimbursement or paycheck from a business; or moved prior to receiving your Colorado state tax rebate, the bank, business or state agency is required by law to file a report and forward those assets to the Unclaimed Property office of the Colorado State Treasurer.

According to the state website, "Money or property turned over to the State Treasury for safekeeping always belongs to the owner or heir of the account and there are no time limits for filling your claim."
