Over $200,000 in Unclaimed Property Returned to Residents of the 6th Senate District in a Single Day

Last Thursday, State Reps. Hogan, Tomlinson, Marcell and I sponsored two state services events featuring PA State Treasurer Garrity at the Warwick Township Building and the Middletown Township Building.  As part of each event, constituents were able to search onsite for unclaimed property, recovering $200,000 owed to those in attendance.

It was an honor having Treasurer Garrity here in the 6th Senate District sharing the great programs Treasury has to offer.  Many people do not know they have unclaimed property and being able to offer this service and finding over $200,000 for our constituents in one day is remarkable. 

Unclaimed property can include things like dormant bank accounts, uncashed checks, forgotten stocks, insurance policies, tangible property like contents of abandoned safe deposit boxes and more. State law requires businesses to report unclaimed property to Treasury after three years of dormancy. The average value of a claim is $1,600.

Our staff also assisted with state services during the day, including processing senior SEPTA applications, birth and death certificate applications, and more.  The Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs were on hand as well, providing information and assistance to veteran attendees.

I encourage anyone who could not attend our events and may think they have unclaimed property to contact our office at 215-638-1784 for assistance.  You may also check online at:  https://www.patreasury.gov/unclaimed-property/
