Treasurer McCord highlights president and first lady names, encourages all to search patreasury.gov

Harrisburg – February 17, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — Presidents Day sales may be hard to resist this holiday weekend, but today State Treasurer Rob McCord noted a way to put some money back in your wallet – Treasury’s Unclaimed Property Program. The Treasurer spotlighted the names of presidents and first ladies that appear in Treasury’s free unclaimed property database, but encouraged all Pennsylvanians to search www.patreasury.gov to find out if any of the $2.2 billion in lost and forgotten money and items Treasury currently holds belongs to them.

“We have hundreds of Washingtons and Jeffersons in our unclaimed property database, but this Presidents Day, we want all Pennsylvanians to search www.patreasury.gov and find out if we are holding lost or forgotten money or items for them,” Treasurer McCord said. “Even if your name isn’t so presidential, there is still a one-in-10 chance that there is something waiting for you. Treasury’s Return Team is ready to help you claim it free of charge.”

Treasurer McCord encouraged Pennsylvanians who recognize a name on this list to call Treasury’s Return Team at 1-800-222-2046. Anyone can search for unclaimed property and initiate a claim online via Treasury’s database at www.patreasury.gov.

The Treasurer noted that businesses and organizations can also have unclaimed property, such as Van Buren Homes of Beaver.

Generally speaking, unclaimed property is any financial asset that has been left with a business or government agency without activity or contact for at least one year. Common forms of property reported to Treasury each year include abandoned bank accounts, forgotten stocks, uncashed checks, and contents of safe deposit boxes.

Since January 2009, the McCord Treasury has collected more than $1.1 billion in property, returned more than $526 million to rightful owners, and generated about $619 million for the state’s General Fund through the Unclaimed Property Program. Overall, there is $2.2 billion in Treasury’s online unclaimed property database available to claim.

To learn more about Pennsylvania’s Unclaimed Property Program or to search for property, visit www.patreasury.gov or call 1-800-222-2046.
