The money is placed in the Palmetto Payback Program when companies cannot locate the owners.
It ranges from abandoned bank accounts, stock certificates, and insurance policies, to utility deposits.
Funds are moved to the unclaimed property account when there has not been activity in the account, usually after a 5 year period of inactivity.
