According to the Michigan Department of Treasury, in the Great Lakes State, there are millions of dollars in lost or forgotten assets out there, including dormant bank accounts, uncashed checks, valuables left in safe deposit boxes and stock certificates.
“Unclaimed Property Day is our annual reminder that Michiganders should check to see if they have something in the states lost and found box,” Governor Gretchen Whitmer said in a statement. “The Michigan Department of Treasury has returned more than $500 million in property to the rightful owners or their heirs over the last five years. Searching for property and filing a claim is as easy as a few clicks of a mouse. I encourage all Michigan residents and businesses to check if they have any lost property that needs to be reclaimed.”
“Everyone should take advantage of Unclaimed Property Day,” State Treasurer Rachael Eubanks added. “One in seven people has unclaimed property nationally. Take a little time today to search by name or business. My team is ready to help begin the process to reunite Michiganders with their unclaimed property.”
