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

$50,000+ Claimed First 5 Days of Wisconsin State Fair, Adding Booth Winnebago County Fair


(West Allis)  The Office of the State Treasurer is pleased to have helped more than 250 people claim more than $50,000 at this year’s Wisconsin State Fair so far.  With 5 more days to go there, the Treasurer is also opening a booth at the Winnebago County Fair. 

The Unclaimed Property Unit will be at the Wisconsin State Fair thru August 12th, 2012 inside the Exposition Center helping people search for their missing money.  Staffers will also be at the Winnebago County Fair August 7th thru August 12th, 2012.

 “We know of at least two people right now we are trying to contact in Winnebago County who have significant cash coming to them.  We’re inviting them to come to the fair to claim their money,” State Treasurer Kurt Schuller said. “It is truly rewarding to tell people they have money they didn’t know they had.”

 Our fast tracking system will make it even easier to claim amounts less than $2,000! You can input all your information into the computer and, if it all matches, have your check in just a few days.
