Unclaimed money totals more than 100 million

Despite record amounts of payments over the past few years, Wyoming’s Unclaimed Property Division of the State Treasurer’s Office is holding on to more money than ever as the amount of money now being held exceeds $100-million.

Unclaimed property is turned over when a business, agency or governmental entity owes money, securities and/or the contents of a safe deposit box to someone and for whatever reason cannot locate the owner for a specified duration of time. The property is turned over to the State of last known address, if an address was ever known.



 

If there was no last known address, it is turned over to the State in which the business was incorporated. Anyone believing they may have such money coming to them can make a valid claim at mycash.wyo.gov or any other state’s site, owners will need to provide information about themselves and may need to submit official documents.
