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. FCNB is seeking input during a 60-day comment period on proposed rules for the program. This consultation step in the rulemaking process is vital to developing the right program for New Brunswick.

Businesses and other entities are encouraged to provide written feedback on proposed rules UP-001 Unclaimed Property – General and UP-002 Unclaimed Property – Fees as well as three consultation questions on or before 23 November 2020
