The state is holding on to million of dollars in unclaimed property and some of that money could belong in your wallet.
State Treasurer Denise L. Nappier has kicked off the annual campaign to return millions to the rightful owners and more than 95,000 new names of individuals, businesses and organizations have been released online in the CT Big List, which includes around 1.5 million names.
“Have you ever experienced the pleasant surprise of finding a few dollars tucked away in a forgotten jacket hanging in your closet? There’s no feeling like found money, even if it’s only a couple of dollars. Well, I’ve got great news,” Treasurer Denise Nappier said in a statement. “We have millions of dollars waiting to be returned to owners. I encourage everyone to search our website to Find What’s Yours! And even if you don’t see your own name on the list, you might notice a relative who has passed away with unclaimed property waiting to be claimed.”
If you find your name, there are two ways to claim what your money.
