Kansas State Treasurer Dennis McKinney's office is currently holding over $200 million worth of unclaimed property for their rightful owners or their heirs.
As a part of the Treasurer's "Pancake and Property Returns" tour, Treasurer McKinney and staff members will traveling throughout the area talking about and searching for Kansans unclaimed property. Treasurer McKinney will be in Liberal at Pancake Days at the Community Reception at the City Hall from 9:00 to 10:30am on Tuesday, February 16.
"We encourage everyone in the area to stop by and check their name and the names of family and friends," said McKinney. "In this economy everyone could use a little help and we feel it's important to be sure that these resources get back to the rightful owners. The Pancake and Property Returns tour is a wonderful opportunity for us to connect Kansans with cash and property currently being held by our office," McKinney explained.
Unclaimed property includes inactive savings and checking accounts, uncashed checks, stock shares and bonds, dividend checks, insurance proceeds, mineral royalties, and utility deposits.
In addition to cash, stocks and bonds, safe deposit boxes are also turned over to the State Treasurer's office on an annual basis. There are currently over 15,718 safe deposit box properties on file. Approximately 600 new boxes are turned over to the treasurer's office each year.
