There's Still Time to Get Check from Unclaimed Property Before Christmas

Posted: Updated:

December is the perfect time of year to check out whether the State Treasurer's Office is holding any unclaimed property in your name.

Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg says his office is holding more than $125 million in unclaimed property for over 350,000 Nebraskans, former Nebraskans and their heirs.

"This holiday season give yourself a gift by checking the Nebraska State Treasurer's Office to see if you have any unclaimed property coming to you. You may be surprised at what you find," said Stenberg.

He says there is still enough time to search the records, gather the necessary documentation, and file paperwork to have their checks in hand by Christmas. He added that a check usually is mailed two to three weeks after a claim is submitted and approved, so time is running low to receive the money by Christmas.

Already in 2013, more than $10.3 million has been paid out, up significantly from the 2012 total of $6.6 million.

The most common types of unclaimed property are certificates of deposit, bank accounts, insurance benefits, unpaid wages, among many others.

To search for unclaimed property, go to www.treasurer.org. Type a name in the box on the home page, or click on the Search for Unclaimed Property tab in the left navigation pane.

For amounts under $300, owners may be able to file their claims online through the website.
