Treasurer Rogers Visits Frontenac Saturday to Reunite Kansans with their Money
FRONTENAC—Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers Saturday visited Frontenac, KS for the Frontenac Mining Days celebration and to continue on his tour of the state, working to return unclaimed property to thousands of Kansans.
“Since January our office has successfully reunited thousands of Kansans with $8,277,125 in unclaimed property, averaging about $200 for every claim returned,” said Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers. “There are so many people in every corner of the state who have no idea that they may have hundreds of dollars owed to them, waiting to be claimed. This weekend’s celebration in Frontenac was an opportunity to get that money back in the pockets of Kansans.”
The State Treasurer’s Office located 2,494 unclaimed property claims worth $229,634 for Frontenac-area residents. The largest of those unclaimed property claims is worth $5,820. During the Frontenac Mining Days celebration, Treasurer Rogers met with Kansans and showed them how to search their names in the Unclaimed Property dashboard. They were able to find about $600 for a dozen attendees.
Unclaimed property can be any financial asset that has not been claimed by its owner 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.
