State Treasurer Lynn Rogers sets record in unclaimed property returns
Almost 6,000 Kansans were returned more than $6.3 million in unclaimed property in August
TOPEKA -- State Treasurer Lynn Rogers announced today that more than $6.3 million in unclaimed property was returned to nearly 6,000 Kansans in the month of August, setting a record for the most unclaimed property returned in a single month.
“We are working hard to reunite Kansans with what is rightfully theirs, and with this record-breaking month, it is clear our efforts are working,” said State Treasurer Lynn Rogers. “We have returned money to individuals, school districts, nonprofits, and municipalities all across the state.”
The state’s previous record for a single month, set in 2019, was $4,226,155.49.
Since taking office in January, State Treasurer Rogers and the Unclaimed Property Division have returned more than $17 million to nearly 60,000 Kansans with an average property amount of $290.24. Kansas currently has more than $400 million in assets to return.
“Now more than ever, every penny counts, and getting this money back to Kansans helps them pay for important expenses or provides little extra to save for education, housing, or retirement,” said Rogers.
Kansans interested in searching for unclaimed property can search online at www.kansascash.ks.gov, or they can find the State Treasurer’s Office at the Kansas State Fair starting Friday, September 10 through Sunday, September 19, in the Meadowlark Building.
Additional unclaimed property search events with State Treasurer Lynn Rogers will be hosted in the weeks to come. More information can be found on the State Treasurer’s Facebook page, facebook.com/KansasTreasurer.
