Regardless of your ability to attend, we value your opinion as we develop the agenda for this unique forum of ideas, challenges and possible solutions.

I want to make sure you all know about some changes for Texas and Connecticut.

Let’s start with Connecticut. This isn’t technically a ‘change’ as it is not new legislation. The current legislation states that your report is due ‘90 days after December 31st of the previous year’. Most years, this falls on March 31st. This year is unique because March 31st falls on a Sunday and Friday the 29th is a state holiday.

Make sure your state report is received by Connecticut no later than Thursday March 28th. Your report must be in the state’s hands by that date. A postmark on the 28th is not sufficient. You can view Connecticut’s official notice here.

December was a nice break from unclaimed property processes for most of you. I hope you all enjoyed the holidays with your loved ones. Now we’re all back in the office and ready for a brand new year. The first big unclaimed property task of the year is to get those due diligence letters out.

Life Insurance companies are the most affected by January due diligence. That’s because most state reports for life insurance are due in the spring and letters need to go out before you prepare your reports. Life insurers, you have this month and next to complete due diligence for Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, and West Virginia.

Insurance companies that do not deal with life policies, you have this month and next to send letters for California, Georgia, Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, Tennessee, and Vermont.

The month of December is rather quiet for unclaimed property filers. The remit report for California was due for life insurers by December 1st.  Puerto Rico has filings due the 10th for 20th. Life insurance companies have a Delaware filing due December 20th. These filings only affect a small portion of companies. What should you do with the rest of the month? Get ready for January due diligence.

Almost all of the spring filing states have a due diligence timeframe that runs from the beginning of January to the beginning of March. You can start gathering your data now to get a jump on due diligence.

Life Insurance companies, you’ll need to gather data for Arizona, Colorado, DC, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia.

California just put out a notice that qualifying holders can get an extension until November 13th. Please view the notice and extension form here.

I'll keep you updated as other states announce extensions.
