WHAT EFFORTS ARE MADE BY THE STATE TO FIND THE RIGHTFUL OWNERS?
The State Treasurer's Office has a number of methods by which it tries to locate owners. Besides our annual advertisements in newspapers throughout the state, the State Treasurer's Office cross-matches the names of unclaimed property owners with public record information retained by other state and federal agencies. The State Treasurer and her staff attend public events, such as the Wisconsin State Fair, SeniorFest, and other public events so that event attendees can search the Unclaimed Property Database and receive information regarding the claims process.
