Treasurer Fitch and the Pike County Supervisors Invite Local Residents To Find their Unclaimed Property On October 25

Jackson, MSOn Friday, October 25, staff from State Treasurer Lynn Fitch’s office will be available at the Chancery Court Annex in Magnolia to help area residents search the State’s unclaimed property list and file claims for their funds.

“I want to thank the Pike County Supervisors for partnering with my office to help reunite local families and businesses with their unclaimed property,” said Treasurer Fitch.  “It is thanks to strong local partners like these that we have successfully distributed over $100 million in funds in just the past seven years.  This money doesn’t belong to the State and we are determined to get it back to its rightful owners.”

“In February the State Treasurer’s Office sponsored an unclaimed property event for Pike County and returned almost $56,000 to our citizens. We are hoping to surpass that amount on October 25th,” said Becky Buie, Pike County Chancery Clerk. “State Treasurer Lynn Fitch and her staff have worked diligently to return this unclaimed money to its owners, and we appreciate their willingness to help Pike County again.”

Unclaimed property specialists from the Treasurer’s office will be available:

Friday, October 25, 2019
3:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Chancery Court Annex, 175 South Cherry Street, Magnolia (in the courtroom)
