Jackson, MS. On Saturday, September 29, staff from State Treasurer Lynn Fitch’s office will be available at the Highway 49 Festival to help area residents search the State’s unclaimed property list and file claims for their funds.
“Since I took office as Treasurer in January 2012, my office has distributed nearly $89 million in unclaimed property,” said Treasurer Fitch. “This represents over 54% of all the funds distributed through the State unclaimed property program since it began in 1982. We have been so successful thanks to partnerships with local and state elected leaders and I appreciate Mayor Sullivan inviting me to join him in helping Richland residents claim their money.”
“Come one come all for a great day of family fun and entertainment,” said Richland Mayor Pat Sullivan. “Who knows you might even find a long lost family fortune at State Treasurer Lynn Fitch’s unclaimed property tent. Hope to see you there and bring a friend!!!!!”
