State Treasury on Pace to Shatter Unclaimed Property Record

In the first 6 months of 2011, the Unclaimed Property Unit of the Office of State Treasurer has returned $17,977,130 to Wisconsin residents and others who realized they had forgotten money and decided to claim it. In the first 6 months of 2010, the Office had returned $15,605,107.

We are more than $2 million ahead of last year’s numbers and are certainly on pace to break last year’s record return of $32,836,258. I meet with a lot of people around the state who have no idea we are holding their money and want to give it back to them!”

The Unclaimed Property Unit processed 3,122 claims in June, the largest amount of claims processed in one month so far this year. I have been on the road since April with the Unclaimed Property Database, helping people search the more than 1.8 million properties and see if any of the $391 million we are holding is theirs to claim!

I will be in hitting several county fairs in the next few weeks and will also be at the Wisconsin State Fair in August with the Unclaimed Property Database. Anyone can stop by, search their name, and possibly start the claim process if they find themselves on the database. Below is the upcoming fair schedule.
