New unclaimed property lists published statewide
The Wisconsin Unclaimed Property Program is publishing the new names received in 2014 in newspapers statewide now through the end of June, according to Wisconsin State Treasurer Kurt Schuller.
Each year, corporations turn over cash, securities and the contents of safe deposit boxes to the state. The unclaimed property unit helps reunite Wisconsinites or former Wisconsin residents and businesses with lost funds.
“We want people to have their money,” Treasurer Schuller said. “We have more unclaimed property valued at more than $400 million in our treasury account. Unclaimed property staff work hard to get these financial assets or items back to rightful owners and heirs.”
The public notices began March 31 in Marathon County and end June 22 in Milwaukee County. The papers of record in each county will list the new names received this year. The Courier Press is running Crawford County’s latest unclaimed property list in today’s paper (June 16). Please be sure to look for your name or names of relatives and friends and begin the process of claiming money.
