Oregon Statutes - Chapter 116 - Accounting, Distribution and Closing - Section 116.203 - Disposition of unclaimed assets.

If a report filed in the estate proceeding by the personal representative not less than 30 days after the date of entry of the judgment of distribution shows that payment or delivery of property in the possession of the personal representative or under the control of the personal representative cannot be made to a distributee entitled thereto, either because the distributee refuses to accept the property or because the distributee cannot be found, the court may direct the personal representative to pay or deliver the property to the Department of State Lands, to be placed in the escheat funds of the state. The personal representative shall take the receipt of the Department of State Lands stating from whom the property was received, a description of the property and the name of the person entitled to the property. The person entitled thereto may apply for and recover the property in the manner provided for recovery of escheat funds. [1969 c.591 §187; 2003 c.576 §378]
