The happenings "inside" the Wisconsin State Treasury and across the street at the State Capitol

Just another $1 Million Day at the State Treasury

My staff Unclaimed Property examiners returned $1,044,816.44 today!

This is one of the largest single day returns in State Treasury history.  Just 2 weeks ago, Unclaimed Property Examiners returned $973,773.94 in one day. Most of that belonged to a Milwaukee man.

The biggest amount today went to a business. That claim was for $951,383.10. The other returns to push the total beyond $1,000,000 ranged from $21.00 to $12,000.

In the past 5 years, we have returned $132,858,373.  As of the end of the 3rd quarter 2011, we have returned $24,513,238.

Claims examiners are working diligently to work through as many claims possible daily and return the unclaimed cash to the rightful owners.  Large amounts of cash require extensive investigation by our office as well as the State Attorney General’s office before payouts are made.

Claiming money is as easy at going to, clicking on the magnifying glass on the home page, typing in your last name and first name and hitting “search”. Be sure to follow our blog our Facebook page at and our Twitter page at
