moneyFRANKFORT, Ky. (8/12/14) — This year Kentucky Treasurer Todd Hollenbach is offering a direct link to his Treasure Finders website.

Now fairgoers can not only digitally search the Treasury’s list of hundreds of thousands of unclaimed properties valued at nearly half-a-billion ($500,000,000) dollars but they will also be able to file a claim on-line.

“The laptops at our booth will be connected live to the Missing Money website,” the Treasurer said. “Once you find your name and your lost property you will be able to fill out a claim form right on line. For those who aren’t able to navigate the computers, Treasury workers will be on hand to assist you,” Hollenbach added.

The State Treasurer serves as custodian of all property surrendered to the state that is presumed lost or abandoned. Each year, the Kentucky Treasury returns millions of dollars in unclaimed property to Kentucky residents.

Since 2008, under the proactive leadership of Treasurer Hollenbach, the Treasure Finders program has returned a record $109-million dollars in lost and abandoned property to thousands of Kentuckians. The Treasurer has set a goal of returning $120-million by the time his second term as Treasurer ends next year.

If you can’t make it to the fair this year and you still want to find out if you’ve got some unclaimed property coming to you, you can search the unclaimed property database on your own computer at www.MissingMoney.com.

If you don’t have access to the internet, you can call the Treasury’s Unclaimed Property office toll-free at (800) 465-4722, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
