If you will be in the Pascagoula area this Thursday, you may want to stop by to visit our unclaimed property specialists to see if the State is holding any money for you:
Jackson County Civic Center
2902 Shortcut Road, Pascagoula
Thursday, March 8, 2018
3:00 to 6:00 pm
Events like these over the past several months have helped reunite many local residents with their money. For instance, an event in Desoto County just a few weeks ago has resulted in nearly $89,000 worth of claims for 37 people there.
You can always check the State’s unclaimed property list on my
. The list is constantly changing, so don’t just check it once and think you might be done! And, if you do think you have some property listed and you plan to come see us at the Jackson County Civic Center, bring along the following to help expedite your claim:
· Photo ID (driver’s license, passport, military ID card, etc.)
· Your Social Security Card
· Proof of address (utility bill, etc.)
· Proof of name change (marriage license, divorce decree, etc.)
· If the owner is deceased, bring the death certificate, will, obituary, or affidavit of death
In the just over six years I have been your Treasurer, we have distributed nearly $80 million in unclaimed property. That’s over 52% of all the money distributed through the Mississippi program since it began in 1982. We know that money can make a real difference in your life and it is our mission to reunite you with it.
