State Treasurer Lynn Rogers Unveils Unclaimed Property Billboards, Helping Reunite Kansans with their Money

 

TOPEKA—Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers this week unveiled two billboards in Topeka to raise awareness of the $400 million in unclaimed property through the Unclaimed Property Division of the State Treasurer’s Office. The billboards are part of a larger campaign to inform as many Kansans as possible of the fund and direct them toward the database where they can find and collect their unclaimed property.

 

During these unprecedented times, we understand that many hardworking Kansans are facing financial hardships, and we want to make every effort to reunite them with their money, help them recover, and further stimulate our economy,” said Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers.

 

Two billboards will rotate locations within the Topeka area through the end of May. The State Treasurer’s Office chose Topeka as the test market for the new campaign to see if the billboards can effectively increase awareness and engagement of Unclaimed Property. If successful, the office hopes to expand to other Kansas markets in the near future.  

 

No taxpayer dollars are being used to cover the cost of this initiative. The campaign is paid for by proceeds of the Unclaimed Property fund. The office is working primarily with Kansas companies to ensure it is supporting our local workforce and surrounding communities.

 

“In all that we do to raise awareness of the services provided by the State Treasurer’s Office, it is my goal that we are using Kansas companies to keep Kansans working and to help our communities thrive,” said Rogers.

 

The office has also launched its new Facebook page specifically for the Unclaimed Property Division and can be found at www.facebook.com/KSUnclaimedProperty.

 

Each year, Kansas businesses send the names of people with bank accounts, wages, stocks, and dividends that have been abandoned to the Unclaimed Property Division, administered by the State Treasurer’s Office. Kansas currently has more than $400 million in assets to return.

 

Kansans are encouraged to search the unclaimed property database for their property at www.kansascash.ks.gov. This is a free service provided by the State Treasurer’s Office.
