(Wyo.)-Treasurer's Office Seeks Owners Of Unclaimed Funds

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 02/04/2013 09:30 AM
     CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming wants to give you your money back.
 
     The state has released its annual "Wyoming Windfall" list, the catch name for the Unclaimed Property Division of the State Treasurer's Office.
 
     Funds that have been held by a company or by another state for a specified number of years and have not or cannot be paid to the owner are then placed in protective custody by the state treasurer. The Unclaimed Property Division safeguards and makes an effort to return the funds to the rightful owner, at no cost to the owner.
 
     The money can include uncashed money orders, oil and gas royalties, stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
 
     State Treasurer Mark Gordon says the average claim is less than $100, but some owners have claimed $100,000 or more.
