Over 4 Billion Dollars In Unclaimed Property


A little about who we are...

Lost Heirs, LLC is comprised of licensed private investigators and genealogical experts. We take on older probate cases where a person has died intestate (without a will) and the courts were unable to find a next of kin. Our team performs a more extensive search and are successful in locating a living relative about 75% of the time. We then assist with every aspect of filing a legal inheritance claim. We charge no upfront fees and only get paid upon confirmation that our clients have received their funds. In addition, we provide genealogy research for probate courts, fiduciaries, and estate personal representatives.


If you've received a letter/call from us...

If you've received a call or letter from us, please take it seriously. Through extensive research we have identified an unclaimed asset and believe you are the rightful heir. Time is of the essence so don't wait too long in getting back with us. If we haven't received a response after several attempts, we move on to the next living relative. Once under contract with another family member we're unable to provide any details of the case. In addition, under most state statutes, if a claim isn't filed within a specific period of time, the money reverts back to the holder.    


How the process works...

Filing a rightful heir claim is a very tedious and complicated process. The fiduciary holders require countless legal documents. These include: An original social security card, certified birth and death certificates of all family members proving lineage, proof of the last known address on file with the holder, original Tax W-2's, pay stubs, account statements, and so on. As licensed private investigators, we assist in gathering everything needed to prove the claim. We incur all costs during this process and again, we don't get paid until after you do.
