Unclaimed Property Team Heads to Oxford Tomorrow
Our unclaimed property team has had such great success with its road trips across the State. In fact, our event in Tylertown last month yielded 57 claims totaling over $65,500! Thanks to partnerships like these, we have distributed more than $82 million since I took office in 2012. That’s over 54% of all the money distributed since the program began in 1982.

Tomorrow, at the invitation of Oxford Mayor Robyn Tannehill, our unclaimed property team heads to Oxford to help the people of Lafayette County find their money, too. If you are in the area, please stop by:

Tuesday, July 10, 2018
3:00 to 7:00 pm
Oxford Conference Center
102 Ed Perry Boulevard, Oxford

Staff will be available to help people search the State’s unclaimed property list, complete claims forms, and even notarize their paperwork. Individuals planning to attend are encouraged to bring the following to expedite their claims:

  • 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

You can always check the State’s full listing at www.treasurerlynnfitch.com to see if the State has any money in your name, as well. It is constantly being updated. 

There are two additional unclaimed property events already in the works:

The Mississippi Bar Annual Meeting and Summer School
I am looking forward to spending time with my fellow attorneys this week at the Mississippi Bar annual meeting and summer school. I will be speaking during both the summer school session and at the annual business meeting. I will also be attending the Price Prather Luncheon. I was humbled to receive that award last year and I am looking forward to honoring this year’s awardee.
