Tennessee treasury department to hold events to help you find unclaimed money
Officials with the Tennessee Department of Treasury's Unclaimed Property Division will be participating in events across the state to help residents claim missing money.
Officials with the division say they will set up Unclaimed Property booths at popular events that will be held across the state throughout 2019.
Residents are encouraged to stop by and see if they have money that belongs to them.
Officials say the division returned almost $33-million to more than 48,000 people last year. One of those people ended up with $13,466.04, the largest amount claimed by a person at these events.
“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 stop for the Unclaimed Property Division will be in Memphis this Friday.
The Unclaimed Property Division will be in Chattanooga in September during the Hamilton County Fair. No specific date has been given for this year's county fair.
