GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) - Looking for some extra cash? The state of South Carolina may have some with your name on it. It's called the Palmetto Payback Program.

The state treasurer has millions of dollars that are unclaimed. FOX Carolina checked the Upstate numbers. There are more than 53,000 unclaimed accounts from people, businesses and agencies, totaling more than $7.5 million in Anderson County.

In Greenville County, there are a whopping 206,000 accounts worth nearly $32 million. In Spartanburg County, there are almost 100,000 unclaimed accounts with a value of more than $14 million.

That is a total of $54 million in just three Upstate counties. It sounds more like a lottery jackpot, but it's just some of the unclaimed money available. It turns out people across South Carolina are entitled to a total of $420 million state-wide.
