Locals identified to receive thousand reported to the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt

DES MOINES – In celebration of National Unclaimed Property Day, held annually on February 1, State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald is sharing the newest report of Union County residents who are in the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt.

“This past year, there was a total of $49 million reported to the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt,” said Fitzgerald. “In Union County alone, $86,000 was remitted, meaning you, a neighbor or a favorite local business could be in the database.”

Under unclaimed property law, when companies and other entities are unable to locate the rightful owner of money and valuables in their possession, they are required to report it to the State by November 1 each year. Assets reported to the State include uncashed payroll checks, abandoned savings accounts, lost stocks and more.

“Each year after reporting season, the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt is filled with new assets waiting to be claimed,” said Fitzgerald. “In an effort to alert those in Union County of their funds, my office has created a list of people and businesses with the top amounts of unclaimed property.”
