JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick is encouraging Missourians to check for unclaimed property.
“People say to me, ‘Oh, I don’t have any Unclaimed Property,’ but the reason it became unclaimed is the fact that you didn’t know you had it. That’s why I always tell people to check anyway,” Fitzpatrick said. “We hold over $1 billion that we want to put it back in the pockets of Missourians–so search and claim what is yours today!”
One in ten Missourians have Unclaimed Property, and the average return is nearly $300.
Scott Fitzpatrick recently joined Scott McCaulley on KRZK's "Ozarks Now" program to talk about several programs including the Unclaimed Property program. That part of the interview can be heard below:
