Find Your Money! Townships Owed Unclaimed Property

Each year, the state Treasury Department receives millions of dollars in unclaimed property. Common types of unclaimed property are savings or checking accounts, stocks, dividends, checks that have not been cashed, such as payroll, certificates of deposit, unclaimed insurance benefits, insurance premium refunds, and the like.  

Don’t miss out! Last year, an eastern township received more than $44,073, while a small municipality in western Pennsylvania with fewer than 300 residents was able to recover more than $21,000. Since taking office, Treasurer Stacy Garrity has returned more than $16.5 million to 79 local governments.
