As part of his continued effort to reunite Unclaimed Property with its owners, State Treasurer Clint Zweifel has announced he has returned more than $1 million to three account owners. In fiscal year 2013, Treasurer Zweifel has returned more than $3.5 million to individuals with accounts more than $100,000.

 “Unclaimed Property is a promise to taxpayers, this is their money and I charge nothing to return it,”  Zweifel said. “I hold nearly $700 million in Unclaimed Property for more than 4.3 million account owners. This is money that belongs to churches, small businesses, local governments and individuals. While not every account is worth more than $100,000, every dollar counts. I encourage you to go online to www.ShowMeMoney.com to see if you, family or friends have property.”

Since January 2009,  Zweifel has returned more than $140 million in Unclaimed Property to more than 490,000 account owners.

Below is an overview of the three accounts returned:

The first account was returned to a business in Columbia, Mo. It totaled $163,000 and was made up of a checking account and a savings account.

The second account was returned to a Fortune 500 Company doing business in Missouri. It totaled $761,000 and was made up of 33 separate claims, the majority of which were from a liquidated security and dividends.

The third account was returned to a Springfield, Mo., business. It totaled $125,000 and was made up of a matured certificate of deposit.

The recipients’ names are not being released for privacy reasons.

Zweifel currently holds 63 accounts with $100,000 or more.
