HARRISBURG – State Senator David G. Argall (R-29) will host State Treasurer Rob McCord to discuss Pennsylvania's Unclaimed Property Program during his February/March television report. The report will also feature a special segment on the Governor's FY 2010-2011 Budget Address.
Each year, the Pennsylvania Department of Treasury receives millions of dollars in unclaimed property – forgotten stocks, un-cashed checks, insurance policies, to name a few – and works to return them to the rightful owners. Currently, Pennsylvania is holding $1.5 billion in unclaimed property.
"It is estimated that approximately one in ten Pennsylvanians have unclaimed property," said Argall. "I would encourage district residents to take a few moments to check the Unclaimed Property Database to ensure that any money being held by the Treasury will ultimately be returned to the citizens."
