“It’s not just individuals that can have unclaimed property,” Treasurer McCord said. “We are also holding unclaimed property for many organizations and businesses, like E.L.F. Entertainment in Gibsonia and Star 92.1 FM radio station in Greencastle.”
Each year, Treasury receives millions of dollars in unclaimed property – money from items such as abandoned bank accounts, forgotten stocks, uncashed checks, and contents of safe deposit boxes. Treasury is currently seeking the owners of $2.2 billion in unclaimed property, all of which is searchable via www.patreasury.gov.
Since January 2009, the McCord Treasury has collected more than $1.1 billion in property, returned more than $510 million to rightful owners, and generated about $615 million for the state’s General Fund through the Unclaimed Property Program.
