Two More Unclaimed Property
Events Coming Up
Our unclaimed property team has been very busy on the road this summer. We are close to distributing $100 million since I took office in January 2012. And events like these, with the partnership of local elected officials and community leaders, are a big part of this success. We had a steady flow of interested citizens in Diamondhead just two weeks ago, and we have these events coming up:

Thursday, July 11, 2019
3:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Lyman Community Center
13472 U.S. Highway 49, Gulfport

Thursday, July 18, 2019
3:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Calhoun County Multi-Purpose Building
121 Parker Street, Pittsboro (on Highway 9)

Many thanks to Representatives Patricia Willis and Greg Haney for partnering with us on the Gulfport event, and to the Calhoun County Board of Supervisors for partnering with us on the one in Pittsboro.

Our unclaimed property specialists will be available to help people search the State’s unclaimed property list and begin the claims process. 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

Remember you can always check the State’s unclaimed property list on my website .
Thank You for the Hospitality All Across Mississippi
We have been all over Mississippi these past couple of weeks and gotten such a warm reception everywhere we go.

I had a lovely Sunday, worshiping with the families of Bethlehem Church in Potts Camp, two wonderful evenings celebrating the Grand Old Party with the Madison and DeSoto Republicans, and the honor of being the keynote speaker for the charter banquet of the Itawamba County Republican Women. I spoke at luncheons with the Hancock County Republicans, as well as the Batesville Rotary. I addressed the conferences of the Mississippi Municipal League and Mississippi Association of Chiefs of Police, visited the Waveland City Hall and Hancock County Courthouse, and participated in a great meet and greet with the East Mississippi Realtors in Meridian.

Perhaps some of my most humbling stops these past two weeks were at the Lawfit Challenge in DeSoto County and the American Legion in Tupelo. These men and women are heroes – some who put on a uniform every day to keep us safe and some who once wore a uniform to save the world from tyranny. It was an honor to share some time with them and hear their stories.

I also visited with Scott Burns, who for 13 years has camped out 24 hours a day for 7 days at the Mall at Barnes Crossing in Tupelo. He raises awareness of the needs of our veterans and raises funds to help them. It’s a fantastic charity and I encourage you to check out his Facebook page . His efforts epitomize the giving nature of Americans, and particularly Mississippians, and I was so pleased to have some time to visit with him.
