An address cannot 'belong to someone', but you could be in possession of the private key which allows you to spend from it. So if you have the private key (ie, you have access to the wallet that created that address, or a backup of it), then you can claim any coins held at that address.

  • This is like saying: "A safe does not belong to anybody, but you could be in possession of its key that allows you to take money from it".
