The state treasurer’s office may be holding unclaimed property for you or someone you know.
During Monday’s Jackson County Commission meeting, the commissioners acknowledged receipt of a letter from Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers listing 20 people from Jackson County with unclaimed property of $2,000 or more that the state is holding for them.
According to the treasurer’s office, unclaimed property can be anything from an undelivered paycheck, dividends from a stock purchase, a utility deposit or an improperly labeled life insurance policy.
When items of value cannot be delivered for one reason or another, the state treasurer’s office holds the items and tries to locate owners.
This unclaimed property on the list provided to the commissioners totaled $91,510.63 and included the following residents:
