Unclaimed Property for BC Residents
In accordance with the Unclaimed Property Act of British Columbia regulations, a company that holds property on behalf of the owner of the property will monitor and maintain records of unclaimed property items where the value is $50.00 or greater.
The B.C. Unclaimed Property Act applies to property if the transaction from which the property took place after July 1, 2000 and:
- The last known address of the owner was in British Columbia; or
- The owner’s address is unknown and the transaction occurred in British Columbia
Types of Property/Insurance
- Life Insurance Policy
- Critical Illness or Disability Policy
- Segregated Funds
Property would be deemed "unclaimed" if one or more of the following situations occur:
- A cheque has been mailed to a client for whom we are holding an account and has been returned as "undeliverable".
- Three years have passed since a cheque was sent to a client for whom we are holding an account and the cheque has not been cashed.
Once an account is deemed unclaimed, BMO Life Assurance Company will take reasonable efforts to locate the client by:
- Locating the owner at the last known address.
- Contact the servicing advisor and/or MGA office assigned to the policy.
- Locating the owner using Canada 411 online directory.
BMO Life Assurance Company maintains a list of unclaimed property owners whom we have been unable to contact. If you would like to request a search of our database, please contact our office at 1-800-387-4483.
