With Nearly $1 Billion in Unclaimed Property, the Tennessee Department of Treasury will Travel to Reunite Tennesseans with Missing Money at Events across the State
by Shelli King, Director of Communications
Nashville, TN — The Tennessee Department of Treasury’s Unclaimed Property Division is traveling to events across the state to reunite Tennesseans with missing money. The Division returned a record-breaking 48,425 claims last year, returning $32.9 million to those with missing money in Tennessee.
In an effort to return missing money to even more Tennesseans this year, representatives from Treasury’s Unclaimed Property Division will be visiting some new events across the state this year and will be returning to several successful events from previous years.
Tennesseans are encouraged to stop by the Unclaimed Property booth to find out if they have missing money. Division representatives will be on-site to help attendees begin the claims process and answer any questions attendees may have. This is the third year the Division has met with Tennesseans at these events and thousands of dollars have been returned to people who stopped by the Unclaimed Property booth to search for their name! Currently, the largest amount found by an individual at one of these events is $13,466.04.
“With nearly $1 billion in unclaimed property in Tennessee, the need to connect with local communities is greater than ever. These events have been an excellent way to help increase awareness for this program,” said State Treasurer David H. Lillard, Jr.
The first two events are the Southern Women’s Show in Memphis this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, March 1-3, and the Southern Women’s Show in Nashville the following week, Thursday through Sunday, March 7-10.
