Unclaimed Property Specialists to Help Residents Search and File Claims for Unclaimed Property
PROVIDENCE, RI – General Treasurer Seth Magaziner will join Rhode Island Treasury's Unclaimed Property Division at Burnside Park in Kennedy Plaza tomorrow, June 18, to help residents search and file claims for unclaimed property.
Unclaimed property tents will be set up from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at Burnside Park in Kennedy Plaza.
"Tomorrow is a perfect day to stop by our Unclaimed Property tents in Kennedy Plaza to see if you or your family members or friends have any unclaimed property," said Treasurer Magaziner. "We look forward to a full day of returning cash and other property to their rightful owners."
Nearly $300 million in unclaimed property is available for Rhode Island residents and former residents to claim through the state treasury. Many assets go unclaimed because people or businesses didn't know they had them or just forgot about them. Sometimes those assets are worth thousands of dollars. They include stocks, bonds, mutual funds, bank accounts, uncashed payroll checks, utility deposits, traveler's checks, contents from deposit boxes, and other money.
In addition to visiting the Unclaimed Property tents tomorrow, Rhode Islanders can also search for unclaimed property by visiting treasury.ri.gov/up2015.
