Tomorrow staff from State Treasurer Lynn Fitch’s office will be available at Magee Crazy Day to help area residents search the State’s unclaimed property list and file claims for their funds.
“Getting unclaimed property back to residents and businesses is great local economic stimulus,” said Treasurer Fitch. “And, it can make a real impact on people’s lives. Since I took office in 2012, we’ve distributed over $90 million in unclaimed property, which is 56% of all the funds distributed through this program since it began in 1982. I truly appreciate Representative Wallace for inviting us to join him at Magee Crazy Day. It is partnerships like this that serve Mississippians best.”
Unclaimed property specialists from the Treasurer’s office will be available from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in front of Magee City Hall.
“I hope all my constituents come by and visit my booth in front of City Hall,” said Representative Price Wallace. “Treasurer Fitch’s team will make it easy for you to look at the list right there and find your money.”
Staff will be available to help people search the State’s unclaimed property list and begin the claims process. Individuals planning to attend are encouraged to bring the following to expedite their claims.
- Photo ID (driver’s license, passport, military ID card, etc.)
- Your Social Security Card
- Proof of address (utility bill, etc.)
- Proof of name change (marriage license, divorce decree, etc.)
- If the owner is deceased, bring the death certificate, will, obituary, or affidavit of death
Individuals can always check the State’s full listing at www.treasurerlynnfitch.com to see if the State has any money in their name, as well. It is constantly being updated.
