Treasurer Rogers Helps Douglas County Residents Find Over $17,000 in Unclaimed Property
TOPEKA—Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers visited Douglas County on Thursday to continue on his tour of the state, returning millions of dollars in Unclaimed Property to thousands of Kansans across the state. Treasurer Rogers and his staff were able to identify over $17,000 in unclaimed property for those who attended the events.
“We had a ton of success Thursday reuniting more and more Kansans with their unclaimed property,” said State Treasurer Lynn Rogers, “Everywhere I stop, I get to deliver good news, and these claims can help Kansans put food on the table, gas in the car, and extra money to go toward retirement, housing, or their children’s educations.”
Treasurer Rogers hosted several pop-up events Zeb’s Coffeehouse in Eudora, The Nook in Baldwin City, and Sunflower Outdoor & Bike Shop in Lawrence. Rogers met with Douglas County residents, raised awareness for State Treasurer’s Office services, and identified over $17,000 in unclaimed property for those who attended the pop-up events.
The office has identified 117,248 unclaimed property claims worth about $11.5 million for Douglas County residents waiting to be returned to its rightful owners. 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.
