Unclaimed Estate Distributions

Unclaimed Estate Distributions

If the Public Administrator is appointed to administer an estate where there are no known heirs or in which the eligible heirs cannot be located by the Public Administrator, the Court will order the applicable distributions be handled as follows:

If there are no known heirs or beneficiaries, the distributions are paid to the Nevada State Treasurer pursuant to NRS 134.120.

If there are known heirs or beneficiaries that cannot be located, the distributions are forwarded to the Clark County Treasurer pursuant to NRS 151.170. The funds are held for a specified period of time established by NRS to allow for an authorized party an opportunity yo collect the funds. If that period has lapsed and any part is still left unclaimed, the funds are submitted to the Nevada State Treasurer as Unclaimed Property.
