Treasurer Rogers Visits Salina Thursday to Reunite Kansans with their Money
TOPEKA--Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers visited Salina on Thursday to continue on his tour of the state, returning millions of dollars in Unclaimed Property to thousands of Kansans across the state.
“The best part of my job is being able to deliver good news to families, and that news usually comes in the form of an unexpected check,” said Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers. “We have an amazing team at the Treasurer’s Office working to get $400 million in unclaimed property back in the pockets of Kansans. We know these claims, ranging from a couple of dollars to thousands, can assist families in putting food on the table, gas in the car, or any other expense.”
The State Treasurer’s Office returned $6,577.81 in Unclaimed Property to the Smoky Hills Education Service Center. The office located 40,945 unclaimed property claims worth $6,420,174 for Salina-area residents. Treasurer Rogers also hosted a pop-up event at Ad Astra Books and Coffee to talk with Salina residents and help them search their names in the Unclaimed Property dashboard. They were able to find over $200 in property for attendees.
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.
