Unclaimed Property Workshop Scheduled For Wednesday

A workshop is scheduled to help you search for money in unclaimed properties and protect your credit.

Amanda Meyer from the Attorney General’s Office will help you perform unclaimed property searches. There are over $300 million in the state’s lost and found properties. Legally, places of business, banks and any other institution that is holding a person’s money has to turn it into the state, where it is kept for 25 years and, if not claimed, it goes into the state’s General Fund. This is an opportunity to see if you have any money coming to you.

Meyer will also show you how to check your credit, how to report anything fraudulent, and how to freeze your credit if necessary.

This workshop will be presented on Wednesday, July 11 from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Henry F. Schricker Public Library in Knox. A booth will be set up in the library so Meyer can help you in your unclaimed property search from noon to 2 p.m.
