  • The service is free to use and is operated by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue

The Money WI service will automatically attempt to contact a person if they have unclaimed property valued at $2,000 or more.  In some cases the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) will compare unclaimed property information to tax records and if property is found in value of less than $2,000 a check will be issued to the owner.  Those who have already submitted a claim using the Money WI GOV service can check the status of the claim with the confirmation or claim number along with the claimants zip code.
