Unclaimed Property Team Traveling
Around the State
As your Treasurer, I take my mission to return unclaimed property to families and businesses across the State very seriously.  These funds can make a real difference in people’s lives.  While the list is always available on my  website , we also try to make it as easy as possible by coming to community centers, libraries, or other locations that make searching for your money and beginning the process to claim it very convenient.

Here are some of our currently scheduled, upcoming unclaimed property events:

Thursday, January 24, 2019
5:00 pm to 6:30 pm
Ridgeland City Hall, 304 Highway 51 in Ridgeland
(College Savings specialists will be on hand, as well.)

Thursday, February 14, 2019
3:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Chamber Center, 103 N. Pearl Street, Carthage

Friday, February 22, 2019
3:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Richland Community Center, 410 E. Harper Street, Richland

Thursday, February 28
3:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Chancery Court Annex, 175 South Cherry Street, Magnolia

Events like these have helped me to distribute more than $91 million in unclaimed property in my first seven years as your Treasurer.  Please check the  list and come out to see my unclaimed property specialists when they are in a town near you so they can help you start the process for claiming your money.

Proud to be Hosting the Girl Scouts for the 5th Year in a Row
On February 13, my office will be working with the Girl Scouts Council of Greater Mississippi to bring Girl Scouts from Central Mississippi to the Capitol to meet with elected officials and state government officials and to learn more about financial literacy. This is the fifth year that I have partnered with the Girl Scouts for this exciting event and I am looking forward to hosting the Scouts again.  It is such a great opportunity for these young women to meet role models in leadership positions and to learn some of the personal finance skills that will help them succeed whatever paths their futures take.
