Missouri State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick is launching an annual effort to return unclaimed property to Missourians. Beginning Tuesday, the names of more than 126,000 individuals, small businesses, and non-profit organizations with unclaimed property will be listed in over 100 publications across the state.
“As we recover from the economic upheaval caused by COVID-19, I encourage all Missourians to check the unclaimed property list and claim any money that is rightfully yours,” Treasurer Fitzpatrick said. “And I also encourage Missourians to take a look at the list—and if you see a name you recognize, let them know. It is always free to claim your unclaimed property and many claims can be filed online. ”
Missouri law requires notices be published annually listing the names of individuals whose unclaimed property of $50 or more has been turned over to the Missouri State Treasurer’s Office in the past year.
The Treasurer’s Office holds more than $1 billion in unclaimed property. UCP is waiting for 1 in 10 Missourians and the average return is $300.
