Treasurer Fitzgerald Announces the Top 10 New Unclaimed Properties in Marion County

Knoxville —

State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald has a list that may add money to your pocket. His list contains the top 10 unclaimed properties that have come to his office since the last publication in Marion County.

"I encourage all Iowans to check their local newspaper for the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt list that will be published soon. Individuals can also check today online at greatiowatreasurehunt.com," Fitzgerald stated.

The list of the top 10 properties in Marion County is being released in conjunction with the upcoming spring publication of the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt. It includes thousands of names of individuals with unclaimed property that have been received in the last year. 

"People believe they would never lose track of their assets, but it happens all the time," said Fitzgerald. "My office makes it easy for you to find and claim what is rightfully yours."

The Great Iowa Treasure Hunt program has returned over $160 million in unclaimed property to more than 394,000 individuals since Fitzgerald started it in 1983. Unclaimed property refers to money and other assets held by financial institutions or companies that have lost contact with the property's owner for a specific period of time. State law requires these institutions and companies to annually report and deliver unclaimed property to the state treasurer's office, where it is held until the owner or heir of the property is found. Common forms of unclaimed property include savings or checking accounts, stocks, uncashed checks, life insurance policies, utility security deposits, and safe deposit box contents.
