$700+ million. That’s how much unclaimed money the state is holding.
The office of State Treasurer Curtis Loftis has launched a new social media promotion aimed at helping people find their perfect match in unclaimed funds in SC — meet “The Matchelor.”
The state’s promotion parodies the popular dating tv series + has a team of “matchelors” and “matchelorettes” who work to connect people with their unclaimed funds. 🌹
If a company tries to send funds to the rightful owner but it doesn’t make it, that money is handed over to the state’s Unclaimed Property Program.
Types of unclaimed property
- Checks lost in the mail + never cashed
- Dormant bank accounts
- Forgotten utility deposits
- Insurance proceeds
- Shares of stock
There are more than a million accounts, so the State Treasurer’s Office is asking citizens to search the website to be “reunited with their long-lost Benjamins, Hamiltons, or Lincolns.”
Visit the State Treasurer’s Office website to see if you can get reconnected with your missing money today. We hope it’s a perfect match, Greenville.
