The state treasurer encourages Nebraska residents to search the website for unclaimed properties

LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) – Nebraska Treasurer John Murante is encouraging Nebraska citizens to find out if they have cash or other valuables waiting for them at Murante said the search takes only a moment and is totally free.

Nearly 33 million people in the US – 1 in 7 – have some sort of unclaimed property, which could be financial accounts or valuables where the owner hasn’t set up business for several years. When this happens, the money or property is presented to the state. Common examples include unpaid life insurance benefits, forgotten bank accounts, and uncashed checks.

In 2022 the Nebraska Treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division returned more than $18.2 million and paid more than 13,000 claims.

“The Treasurer’s Office Unclaimed Property Division personnel are there to help you get what’s yours. This is your money and it should be given back to you,” Murante said. “It’s fast, it’s easy, and it’s free.”

Last year, to raise awareness of unclaimed properties, the National Association of Unclaimed Property Trustees (NAUPA) launched the first-ever National Unclaimed Property Day on February 1st.
