Every once in a while people ask us about jobs as unclaimed-property brokers.
(Note: As for tracking down your own “unclaimed-property” — you can do that yourself. The “National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators” (NAUPA) and their state affiliates offer these exact same searching services free. These are government offices, not private businesses. They link you to state and federal government offices that will search for you for no charge.)
There are private businesses that offer, for a fee, to search for unclaimed property, but I’m not sure they have a specific name, job title, or occupational heading. I have heard them called unclaimed-property brokers or asset recovery businesses, but there may be others. These businesses may work with attorneys, debt collectors, law enforcement, or private investigators, among others.
