Do You Have Unclaimed Pandemic Relief Payments?

  • Post category:Local / News

Nearly 2.3 million payments, approximately 40,000 checks to Mainers, have not been cashed in pandemic-era relief money.

During the pandemic and immediately following, Governor Mills and the Legislature created several relief payment programs to put money directly back into the pockets of Maine people.

Nearly $19 million has now been turned over to the Maine Unclaimed Property program and can be claimed by Maine people.

To determine if their relief payment has gone unclaimed, visit the Maine Unclaimed Property program’s website at www.maineunclaimedproperty.gov.

Governor Janet Mills said:

My Administration worked with the Legislature to deliver multiple relief payments to Maine people to help them through the economic hardships caused by the pandemic. Now, like then, we want to make sure that money goes directly back into the pockets of Maine people. I urge you to check the Maine Unclaimed Property program to make sure you are not owed a relief payment or other unclaimed property held by the state.
