State Treasury Division breaks document returning $100 million to Missourians

The Missouri State Treasurer’s Office has returned more than $ 100 million in unclaimed property to Missouri citizens over the past two years.

“Raising awareness and returning unclaimed property to rightful owners has been a priority since day one – especially during the COVID-19 pandemic when so many Missourians needed help,” Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick said in a press release. “Our innovative partnerships between the state governments with DSS (Department of Social Services) and DOLIR (Department of Labor and Industrial Relations) have contributed to this record success.”

By initially working with DSS to introduce an automated system that balances unclaimed property with overdue child child support, the State Treasurer’s Office has reported overdue child child child support payments in Missouri of more than $ 3.6 million, according to a press release. Dollars returned.

In October 2020, the office partnered with DOLIR to return unclaimed property to Missourians applying for unemployment benefits. By cross-referencing DOLIR’s data with the state’s unclaimed property database, the Treasury returned more than $ 2.1 million to Missourians.

The State Treasurer’s Office has now broken its fourth record. Since Fitzpatrick took office in January 2019, $ 100 million in unclaimed property has been returned to Missourians. This is the fastest of any treasurer in Missouri, according to the press release.

One in ten Missourians has unclaimed property and the average return is $ 300, according to the Treasurer’s Office.
