What is UAR?

left Logo

Experian’s Unclaimed Assets Register (UAR) is a database of UK individual’s unclaimed financial assets. Updated annually by Experian, it helps consumers to recover their lost money and reunite them with their lost assets.

For insurers, pension companies, financial services provider and listed companies the UAR addresses the issue of unclaimed assets by providing a single source to search for lost investors.


How are assets lost?

left Logo

An asset can be separated from its owner for many reasons including:

  • Death
  • Change of address
  • Illegal activity
  • A failure of the owner to notify a company or Registrar of a change of address
  • People make investments and fail to tell their partners

Whilst companies make efforts to find customers when funds are due to be paid out these efforts are entirely down to the company concerned. As a result many assets are lost and consumers lose touch with their provider.


Who can use the service?

The Unclaimed Assets Register can be used by consumers to trace their lost assets, probate solicitors to help reunite their clients with their lost money, and businesses such as pension companies & financial services providers to find their lost customers.


How can I use the service?

It is recommended that consumers and solicitors can use the UAR’S website to make a search online. This can be done by registering with the UAR and setting up an online account at www.uar.co.uk

Businesses can register online and can upload the file online into the Unclaimed Assets Register.


How do I pay?

The results will be ready within 2 working days from the date the request has been submitted. We will email you asking you to log back into the system to view your results.


How can I track the status of my application?

left Logo

The status can be tracked by logging in to your account on the UAR website.


What should I do if my search is successful?

left Logo

If we find an unclaimed asset for you, you should contact the company holding the asset for further details. The company name and the contact details of the organisation holding your asset will be recorded in your search results.


What should I do if my search is not successful?

left Logo

Experian requests as much information as possible from you in the application form in order to perform a search. A search may be unsuccessful because you do not have any unclaimed assets or because the company against which you are making a search is not a member of the Unclaimed Assets Register. The results of the search are directly correlated to the information provided on the application form. If there are assets in another address for example or a slight variation of the name, the search will be unsuccessful: the details have to be an exact match.
