Do you have unclaimed cash? Check here!
BATON ROUGE – Louisiana residents can search for nearly $750 million in unclaimed property Saturday at the Mall of Louisiana, according to Treasurer John Kennedy.
Employees from the Unclaimed Property Division will be stationed near the Dillard’s entrance on the first floor of the mall from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
Kennedy said there will be a separate line for victims affected by August’s historic flooding.
To check to see if you have unclaimed cash, you will need a valid photo ID and a social security card. Checks for all approved claims will be mailed after the event.
"We just returned thousands of dollars to a flood victim who was stranded at a shelter after losing her home. She's now in a more permanent home," said Treasurer Kennedy. "We know more flood victims have Unclaimed Property. They just don't know it yet. That's why they need to come by and search our database."
Kennedy said the average claim usually includes old bank accounts, payroll checks, CDs, stocks and dividends, insurance proceeds, oil and gas royalties or utility deposits. Since 1972 the program has returned more than $407 million to more than 620,000 residents.
If you can’t make it to Saturday’s event, you can also check online at the Louisiana Treasury website or by calling 1-888-925-4127 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
