State hopes to return unclaimed assets to owners

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Starting this week, the Wisconsin treasurer is publishing the names of people with abandoned assets or forgotten money.

The listings will appear in newspapers statewide for the next three months. 

Each year, corporations turn over unclaimed cash, securities and the contents of safe-deposit boxes to the state treasurer's office. The office's Unclaimed Property Unit helps return the assets to their rightful owners.

According to State Treasurer Kurt Schuller, the office has more than $400 million in unclaimed assets.

The listings only reflect the new names received this year to date.
