Every year the Beaufort County Treasurer’s Office submits unclaimed funds to the South Carolina State Treasurer’s Office. It is the responsibility of the South Carolina State Treasurer to hold unclaimed funds on behalf of taxpayers until the funds are claimed.

Some common forms of Unclaimed Property include savings or checking accounts, stocks, uncashed dividends or payroll checks, and refunds. Beaufort County’s most common forms of unclaimed funds are uncashed checks.

Before submitting unclaimed funds to the State, the Beaufort County Treasurer’s Office must send a written notification to the address of record, giving the taxpayer the opportunity to claim the funds before they are submitted to the state.
