Treasurer Fitch helps Mississippians with unclaimed property

Treasurer Lynn Fitch has announced two more events where Mississippians can come look for and claim their unclaimed property.

“Events like these in Winona, Myrtle, and Pearl last November helped reunite people in those towns with over $60,000,” said Fitch.  “What a great boost for their family budgets and for the local economies.  It is a pleasure to work with mayors, supervisors, legislators, and others to help people claim money the State is holding for them.”

Fitch took office in 2012, and since then, she has distributed $79 million in unclaimed property, which is more than half of all the money that has been distributed since the program began in 1982.

Thursday, February 15
3:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Desoto County Administration Building
365 Losher Street, Hernando

Tuesday, February 20

These events will have unclaimed property specialists on hand to help people search the State’s unclaimed property list, complete claim forms, and notarize their paper work. Individuals you are planning to attend are encouraged to bring the following items:

  • 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

To see if the State has any money in their name, individuals can check the State’s listing at
