    The state is holding millions of dollars in unclaimed funds and wants to return it to you if you are on the "CT Big List."

    Treasurer Denise Nappier's office released the official Connecticut "Big List" at 11 a.m. on Thursday.

    More than 54,000 people are on the list. Most people are owed $50 to $500, but some are owned in tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in unclaimed funds. 

    The money can include dormant balances in savings and checking accounts, uncashed checks, commissions or wages, and other financial assets that have been forgotten, according to the treasurer's office.

    Since 1999,  more than $421 million has been paid out to 218,000 people and businesses.
