More Opportunities to Get Your Unclaimed Property Coming Up
Our unclaimed property team is going to be out on the road again soon, giving local residents an opportunity to search the unclaimed property list, file claims, and learn more about the process at convenient settings in their hometowns. 

Partnerships like these, with Representative Price Wallace, who invited us to Harrisville Day, and Mayor Pat Sullivan, who invited us to the Highway 49 Festival, are so helpful in reuniting Mississippians with their money. Since I took office in 2012, we have returned over $88 million in unclaimed property to its rightful owners. That is nearly 56% of all the money returned since the program started in 1982.

Saturday, September 22, 2018
8:00 am to Noon
Harrisville Day, Harrisville Community Park, off Highway 469

Saturday, September 29, 2018
10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Highway 49 Festival, Richland Soccer Fields

We will also have a booth inside the TradeMart throughout the length of the State Fair from Wednesday, October 3 to Sunday, October 14. This is our sixth year at the State Fair. Our efforts in the first five years generated over 7,300 claims, returning more than $11.2 million to Fair-goers.

Individuals planning to visit with our unclaimed property specialists 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

And you can always check the State’s full listing at to see if the State has any money in your name, as well. It is constantly being updated, so check regularly!
Thank You, Mississippi Children’s Museum
Thank you to all the staff of the Mississippi Children’s Museum for making our sixth annual $5.29 College Savings Day such a great success! We had so many families come by our table to take a picture with Echo, participate in our fun financial education activities, and learn more about saving for college and even K-12 education. Congratulations, also, to our two $529 MACS scholarship winners:

Chase Hatchett
Madison, Mississippi

Kimsey McCormick
Flowood, Mississippi

Honored to Participate in a 9-11 Event for First Responders
It was such an honor and privilege to be the speaker at this year’s thank you luncheon for first responders and members of our armed forces, hosted annually by Percy Thornton and Southern States Utility Trailer Sales in Richland.

The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 were a heart-breaking reminder to us all of how much our first responders do for us on a daily basis.   On that tragic day, they not only sacrificed their own safety and lives for the victims of the attack, they also cared for the injured, comforted the survivors, and paid the very first of last respects for the fallen. Frankly, these are things our first responders and servicemembers do for us every time they put on the uniform.

Southern States does such a service to these brave men and women, hosting this luncheon each September 11. But, all of us need to remember to thank them for what they do throughout the year.
