Unclaimed Property

It’s money that could be yours. Every year, thousands of dollars go unclaimed in New Brunswick, forgotten in credit union accounts, uncashed cheques, security deposits and more.

Under new legislation, New Brunswick businesses and entities holding this money will work with FCNB to return it to you. The legislation allows the province to launch a program to help you track down your unclaimed money and put it back where it belongs – in your pocket.

FCNB will administer the program and maintain an up-to-date online list of unclaimed money, free of charge to search. 

For more information, check out our news release and read the Act, which received Royal Assent on 17 March 2020, and will be proclaimed and come in force with the adoption of the associated rules.

In the meantime, you should contact institutions that hold your money every year, especially if you changed address or marital status. Keep accurate financial records, and record all insurance policies, security investments as well as rent and utility deposits.
