|Nearly $8,000 in lost funds was recovered for 15 people at the July 8 Volcanoes baseball game in Keizer. Several more took claims forms for relatives, which could bump the dollar amount to over $10,000.
“We talked with folks who visited our booth, which was not only fun, but proved valuable to those who had funds waiting to be claimed,” said Tammy Palmer, unclaimed property claims examiner. “This was our second year there, and we really enjoy the Volcanoes fans.”
Do you have an upcoming event that would be a good outreach opportunity for the unclaimed property staff? If so, please contact Pat Tate, program manager.
The Department of State Lands receives nearly $50 million a year in unclaimed funds from businesses and organizations holding money for people who can’t be located. Typical examples include uncashed checks and abandoned bank accounts. Check now for your name!
