Find Out If You Have Unclaimed Cash Held By The State
Travis County residents may have money waiting for them in the state’s unclaimed property database, and they’ll be able to search for it at an upcoming event hosted by the Texas Comptroller’s office and Travis County Treasurer Dolores Ortega Carter.
Comptroller’s office representatives will help people search for unclaimed property online, fill out claim forms and answer questions from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 13, in the Travis County Community Center at Pflugerville at 15822 Foothill Farms Loop, in Pflugerville.
Unclaimed property includes forgotten utility deposits or other refunds, insurance proceeds, mineral interest or royalty payments, dormant bank accounts and abandoned safe deposit box contents. The Comptroller’s office aims to reunite more than 28 million properties with their rightful owners.
“Texas has $4 billion in unclaimed property, and as comptroller, one of my jobs is to get that money back in the hands of those who earned it,” Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar said. “I encourage Texans to search for their money online or contact my office to claim their rightful property.”
The Comptroller’s office reports that Travis County residents have more than $146 million in unclaimed property waiting to be claimed.
