State Treasurer to return to Black Hills Home Show

 

What:         The State Treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division will set up a booth at the Black Hills Home Show to return unclaimed property to the rightful owners.

 

Where:       Rushmore Plaza Civic Center

                   444 N. Mt. Rushmore Road, Rapid City, SD

 

When:        Friday, March 24, 2017 12 p.m. - 7 p.m.

                   Saturday, March 25, 2017 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

                   Sunday, March 26, 2017 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

 

Why:          The State Treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division will attend the Black Hills Home Show to return unclaimed funds to South Dakotans. 


Unclaimed property refers to accounts, in financial institutions, businesses and government agencies that have had no activity for three years or longer.

Currently, the Unclaimed Property Division is holding over $392 million in unclaimed funds. This year alone we have already given back $20 million. The state holds the money in a custodial capacity until the money can be returned to the rightful owners.

“Our goal is to put money back into the hands of South Dakotans,” Treasurer Rich Sattgast said. “That money ultimately makes its way into our economy which is good for our state.”


To check for unclaimed property, visit www.sdtreasurer.gov or call the unclaimed property hotline at 1-866-357-2547 to talk to an unclaimed property representative directly.
