Wednesday, July 27, 2016
Columbia -- South Carolina State Treasurer Curtis Loftis signed letters returning $290,612.11 in unclaimed property to South Carolinians today.
"I want every South Carolinian to know about our unclaimed property program, so we can give their funds back to them,” said Treasurer Loftis. “There's more than $500 million in unclaimed property in South Carolina and it takes about two minutes to see if one belongs to you.”
Examples of the type of property covered by the Program include bank accounts, stock certificates, checks, insurance policies and utility deposits. The Unclaimed Property Program does not include tangible property like land or vehicles.
