FAQ: What Efforts are Made By the State of Wisconsin to find the Rightful Owners?


The State Treasurer’s Office has a number of methods by which it tries to locate owners. Besides our annual advertisements in newspapers throughout the state, the State Treasurer’s Office cross-matches the names of unclaimed property owners with public record information retained by other state and federal agencies. The State Treasurer and her staff attend public events, such as the Wisconsin State Fair, SeniorFest, and other public events so that event attendees can search the Unclaimed Property Database and receive information regarding the claims process.

Wisconsin State Treasurer Kurt Schuller also added a number of fairs to his schedule as part of continuing Community Outreach efforts to return money.  This weekend through August 12, he and staff will be at the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis, as well as the /Winnebago County Fair searching databases for missing money!
