TOPEKA (KSNT) – Do you have unclaimed money? Right now, Kansas has more than $350 million in unclaimed property they’d like to return to residents, according to Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers.
“This is money that got returned to the state for some reason,” Rogers said. “It doesn’t belong to the state. it deserves to be back in people’s bank accounts.”
What kinds of properties are they?
- Court deposits
- Dormant checking accounts
- Dormant savings accounts
- Insurance benefits
- Oil and gas royalties
- Safe-deposit box contents
- Stock and cash dividends
- Utility deposits
Rogers said that they have been traveling the state over the last eight or nine months, setting up at coffee shops, but you can visit the treasurer’s office website to search if you have any unclaimed property waiting.
