Campaign to Return KRW17.9 Trillion in Unclaimed Financial Assets BeginsNov 13, 2023

The Financial Services Commission announced that a campaign to return unclaimed or dormant financial assets worth about KRW17.9 trillion to financial consumers will begin on November 13 for six weeks until December 22 with participation from all financial sectors.


Unclaimed financial assets, such as dormant financial accounts, inactive financial accounts (for more than 3 years) and card points (cash back rewards, etc.), amounted to KRW1.6 trillion, KRW13.6 trillion and KRW2.6 trillion, respectively, for a total of KRW17.9 trillion as of the end of June 2023.


In this year, the number of financial institutions participating in the campaign has been expanded as the mutual finance sector will also join the joint campaign effort. In addition, this year, consumers will be able to see if there are any remaining balances on their securities investment accounts alongside other types of unclaimed financial assets from checking and savings accounts, insurance benefits or card points.


Access to unclaimed financial assets is available on the internet ( or on the ‘Account Info’ mobile app.


The financial authorities will continue to upgrade the dormant financial account management system to help consumers to more easily and conveniently search and claim their dormant assets.
