Korea Deposit Insurance Corp. (KDIC) has been steadily maintaining its unclaimed deposits service to help customers claim their unclaimed money when their financial companies went bankrupt. The state-owned deposit insurance company will use a code similar to the “Gov’t 24” code being used by the Ministry of Interior and Safety, which is well-known among the people to help depositors claim their unclaimed deposit money at any time.
Those who find unclaimed deposit money can get it at the KDIC home page or by visiting the agencies of KDIC around the country. They are advised either to call 1588-0037 or visit the homepage of KDIC at www.kdic.or.kr. to find out if they still have unclaimed deposit money left.
