La Crosse Tribune Highlights Our Efforts
Last Friday, the La Crosse Tribune ran a story highlighting our efforts to return millions of dollars in unclaimed property. They were interested in the large payout to the La Crosse resident last week – $224,000!
Since the article ran in the paper as well as online, we have received 4400 claim requests. 185 of them were “fast track” claims meaning, the person making the claim typed in their social security number and it matched the number we already have in our system. Those people will get their checks in less than 10 days! We are returning $11,000 in fast track claims alone!
As you are gearing up for the holiday gift giving season…or maybe already did your shopping, you might want to check if you have any lost money sitting around!
