Columbia, SC (WLTX)- Just in time for Christmas, Treasurer Curtis Loftis and the State Treasurer’s Office have been checking Santa’s list to see who’s naughty and who’s nice, and came up with a list of 25 names who have unclaimed property waiting for them!
“If your name is on the list, it could be the perfect surprise this holiday season!” said Treasurer Loftis. “This is the kind of list you definitely want to be on since it ends with an unexpected holiday gift. It only takes a few minutes to check our website to see if you have unclaimed property.”
Just like the 25 Days of Christmas, these 25 Christmas-themed names all have presents waiting for them in the form of unclaimed property.
Millions of dollars are transferred to the Unclaimed Property Program annually by companies that cannot locate the owners. Examples of the types of property covered by the program include dormant bank accounts, stock certificates, un-cashed checks (including paychecks), insurance proceeds and utility deposits. People should check to see if their name is on this list, and if they live (or have ever lived) in the city listed, they could have money waiting for them!
WLTX and Treasurer Loftis’ office have teamed up to help you see if you have any unclaimed property waiting for you! Tune in everyday to News19 This Morning to see a new Christmas themed name of the day! One name will be revealed each day while counting down to Christmas!
