Kentucky State Treasurer Allison Ball has returned $313,410 in unclaimed property to Scott County.
Ball administers Kentucky’s Unclaimed Property Fund, which works diligently to reunite unclaimed property with their owners, or in cases where the owner is deceased, the owner’s family. Unclaimed property generally consists of payroll checks, unclaimed safety deposit boxes, old life insurance policies, stocks and more that have been unclaimed by their owners after several years.
“One of my favorite things to do as treasurer is to return people’s money to them,” said Ball. “I am a big believer in property rights and I am proud of the success we have seen at the Treasury in returning a record amount of property to Kentuckian’s.”
To date, her office has returned $70,167,000 to Kentuckians in a three-year period, more than any state treasurer in state history.
Scott Countians still have over $3,339,263 of unclaimed property waiting to be claimed. To search for unclaimed property, visit www.treasury.ky.gov.
