State Treasurer Lynn Rogers Visits Wichita Downtown Rotary Club, Identifies Unclaimed Property
TOPEKA— Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers met today with the Wichita Downtown Rotary Club to give a presentation on the services provided by the State Treasurer’s office, including Unclaimed Property, Learning Quest 529 Savings Plans, ABLE Savings Plans, ScholarShop, issuing and servicing municipal bonds, serving on the KPERS Board and PMIB Board, and administering various linked deposit loan programs to Kansas businesses and families.
"Our team is working hard and creatively to return unclaimed property to Kansans -- it is their money, and they deserve to have it back in their pockets. Additionally, we are working to promote investment opportunities for Kansas families to reduce the cost of school,” said Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers. “I want to thank the Wichita Downtown Rotary Club for welcoming me with open arms.”
To date, State Treasurer Lynn Rogers has returned more than $10 million to individuals, school districts, businesses, and local governments all across the state. The State Treasurer’s Office identified 433,888 properties totaling in excess of $1.3 million for the Wichita area and 501,414 properties totaling in excess of $56.5 million within Sedgwick County.
Unclaimed property can be any financial asset that its owner has not claimed or has not had any owner-generated activity for a specific period of time. Unclaimed property is not real estate.
Claiming unclaimed property through the Office of Kansas State Treasurer is always easy, safe, and free. Any website requesting credit card information or offering to find property for a fee is not the official website of the State Treasurer.
