Treasurer Fitch and the Rankin County Board of Supervisors Invite Local Residents To Find their Unclaimed Property On October 28

Jackson, MSOn Monday, October 28, staff from State Treasurer Lynn Fitch’s office will be available at the Rankin County Courthouse Annex in Brandon to help area residents search the State’s unclaimed property list and file claims for their funds.

“I want to thank the Rankin 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.”

“I encourage all Rankin County residents to review the list carefully and take advantage of this convenient opportunity for filing your claims,” said Steve Gaines, Board President.  “We appreciate Treasurer Fitch and her office for not only helping us get these funds back promptly, but also for helping Rankin County residents and businesses do the same.”
