Every unclaimed safe deposit box tells a story.

The Return Team: A Reality Series

Everything he learned the hard way, they will learn his way.

A Chicago bluesman leaves behind a fortune in uncashed royalty checks and a story that leads to the doorstep of a very surprised woman.

Every year they return millions of dollars in forgotten money and safe deposit box contents to rightful owners across the country. They are State Unclaimed Property Officers, aka Return Teams. Now, for the first time, a compelling new series follows them inside state vaults and onto the streets as they find unclaimed property for roughly one out of every eight Americans they encounter. Whether it’s uncashed checks and forgotten security deposits or stockpiles of cash, priceless coins and memorabilia, war medals and even treasure maps, every unclaimed item has a story that’s never been told... Until now.
