Frequently Asked Questions
There are a number of reasons that unclaimed assets are being held.
Some are held by the various states because the owner was not located,
for example, deposits left with utility companies, income tax refunds or
dividends from stocks, bonds and other financial instruments.
Some are from dormant estates where the beneficiaries are unknown
or could not be found. And some are held by companies who have
lost track of previous employees.
Once weíve determined that there are unclaimed assets in a personís name
we use public records to locate the personís current address beginning with
the address listed on the unclaimed assets. Once it is determined that the
owner no longer lives at the address we search property records and telephone
directories. If that does not provide the answer, we research genealogical
records such as census records and obituaries.
Once the owner or heir is located, we will forward a contract for signing
that states that we will work with you to prove you have a legitimate claim
to the assets. It also states that upon successful completion of the claim,
that you will pay Morgan Research Associates, LLC, a percentage of the
money received as stated on the signed contract.
Each claim will have different requirements but, in general, if you are
the asset owner, your social security number will be necessary as
well as the documents that each agency, institution, company or
state requires that is holding the asset.
If you are the heir or beneficiary, in general, the ownerís social security
number will be required as well as documentation that asserts your
claim to the assets such as your birth certificate, a marriage license or
a probated will.
Morgan Research Associates, LLC, will help you ascertain which documents
your claim will require and will help to locate these documents and file the
No. You will pay Morgan Research Associates, LLC, once you
have established claim and you have received the money or asset.
We believe that your money should be in your pocket instead of
in state treasuries, financial institutions or companies unbeknownst
to you. Itís your right to manage the money according to your
needs and goals.
