Caldwell County residents continue to take advantage of the services provided through the Kentucky State Treasury's Unclaimed Property Division.

Treasurer Allison Ball noted that county residents have had more than $216,000 returned through her office since she became treasurer in 2016.

“One of my favorite things to do as Treasurer is to return people’s money to them,” Ball said. “I am a big believer in property rights and I am proud of the success we have seen at the Treasury in returning a record amount of property to Kentuckians.”

To date, the office has returned $216,886 to Caldwell County under Ball's tenure, and $70.1 million statewide.

The Kentucky State Treasurer administers Kentucky’s Unclaimed Property Fund. Unclaimed property generally consists of payroll checks, unclaimed safety deposit boxes, old life insurance policies, stocks, and more that have remained unclaimed by their owners after several years. The Treasury’s Unclaimed Property Division works diligently to reunite these items with their owners, or in cases where the owner is deceased, the owner’s family.

Caldwell Countians still have over $1,270,365 of unclaimed property waiting to be claimed. To search for unclaimed property, please visit www.treasury.ky.gov.
