Helping People Find Their Cash While Having Some Fun

There are only 4 days left for the Wisconsin State Fair and the Winnebago County Fair. We have people working both fairs this year at the same time helping people claim their cash. We will be at the Dodge County Fair next week.

This is a big deal for us because we are an office of only 10 people. 5 of us spend our days working solely on claims. Each month, we are averaging nearly $3 million returned! That’s a lot of claims daily. When you add our outreach events such as the fair, we are doubling the amount of claims that come into the office.

But this is what we do and we are happy to be returning missing money to people. It’s a fun job! We have claims for more than $80,000 so far at the Wisconsin State Fair with one man claiming more than $20,000! What a surprise to come to the fair and eat a bunch of food on a stick and walk away with that much money!

And, we also get to have a little fun while at the fairs. Check out our album from the fair on our Facebook page. Our Communications Director took it upon himself to sample as much fried food on a stick that he could.
