State Treasurer Ron Estes says the Kansas Cash booth at this year’s state fair resulted in more than $750,000 in unclaimed property being returned to its rightful owners.
The treasurer says the number of people stopping at the booth and searing for missing money in a computerized database this year was far greater than in recent years. More than 2,400 claims were filed, with the largest being for more than $93,000.
Estes says the unclaimed assets come from forgotten bank accounts, stocks, bonds, insurance premium overpayments, refunds and other sources.
Those who didn’t check for property at the fair can do so online at www.kansascash.com or by calling 1-800-432-0386.
