Unclaimed Property Roundtable “Compliance in a New, Aggressive Environment”
Chicago, Illinois
Wednesday May 9, 2018

The proposed changes to the Revised Uniform Unclaimed Property Act offer little in the way of relief for holders, and make way for new and aggressive powers for state auditing. In this exclusive DMA roundtable, we will discuss the best practices holders can employ to maintain robust compliance and hold auditors at bay.


DMA is hosting this invitation-only roundtable and luncheon addressing best practices for managing unclaimed property under proposed changes to the Uniform Act and state changes for auditing and compliance. This roundtable is CPE accredited, and seating is limited to two per company. 



11:30 AM – 3:00 PM Lunch and Discussion



  • National and Jurisdictional Updates – A soliloquy of “modernization”
  • The Revised Uniform Unclaimed Property Act of 2016 and the ABA revision of 2018
  • Aggressive new state laws impacting holders and owners
  • Delaware, Tennessee and Illinois developments
  • Trends for tomorrow


Compliance Issues

  • Complications with dormancy, stale property management and record retention
  • The “uniform” due diligence letter – fact or fiction?
  • The B2B, exemptions, reductions and deductions – smoke and mirrors, or meat on the bone?
  • Issues and pitfalls for reporting and remitting 


Best Practices

  • Audit issues for owner redemptions and proof of identity
  • Signing your life away – report signatories and notarization
  • Automation and property management software
