State Treasurer Kurt Schuller and staff from the Unclaimed Property Unit will be at Miller Park Thursday June 7th as the Milwaukee Brewers take on the Chicago Cubs on the last day of a three-game series. Anyone who stops by the Unclaimed Property Booth will be able to search Unclaimed Property Database to see if the State Treasury is holding his or her lost money.

Thursday June 7th, 2012

Treasurer Schuller will be available for interviews. At the last Brewers event in 2010, we returned more than $2,000 to people who had just come to see a baseball game…including a Milwaukee television reporter!

There is more than $400 million dollars in unclaimed assets held by the State Treasury. This money comes from forgotten paychecks, insurance premium overpayments, utility deposits, forgotten bank accounts, forgotten stocks, abandoned safe deposit boxes and many other forms of assets that have been lost, forgotten about or that people did not even know they had! There are more than 2 million “properties” held by the Office of State Treasurer. Many people have more than one claim they can make!

In 5 months this year, the Wisconsin State Treasury has returned more than $18 million dollars to people who have made claims. This puts the office on another record setting pace. Last year, The State Treasury returned $34 million dollars, which was a record. If our pace continues, we will surpass $36 million returned by the end of 2012.

Anyone who comes to the game tomorrow can search for his or her own names, their relatives’ names or even their neighbors. As always, you can search the database 24/7 by heading to our website, www.wismissingmoney.com or by calling 855-375-CASH(2274).
