Claim of Half-Brother to Unclaimed Property Denied

A claim to unclaimed property held by the Pennsylvania Treasury was properly denied when the property was a joint account in the names of the claimant’s mother and half-sister, the mother predeceased the half-sister so that the account became the sole property of the half-sister, and the claimant was not an heir to the half-sister because she was survived by her father.  Morris v. Pa. Treasury Dept., Bureau of Unclaimed Property, 152 A.3d 1083, 7 Fid.Rep.3d 112, 668 C.D. 2016 (Pa. Cmwlth. 2016).
