State Treasurer Don Stenberg says his office will sponsor a booth at the Nebraska State Fair starting Friday to help Nebraskans recover unclaimed property.
Stenberg says the booth will also provide information about the
Nebraska College Savings Plan Trust and the Long-Term Care Savings Plan administered by his office.
Specialists in the State Treasurer's Office say they are holding money for one in every five Nebraskans. Given those odds and last year's fair attendance figures, more than 61,000 fairgoers could find unclaimed property at the State Treasurer's booth.
Unclaimed Property specialists will be available from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. throughout fair, which wraps up Sept. 5.
Examples of unclaimed property include health claim payments,
dividends, life insurance proceeds, stocks, safety deposit boxes
and unused gift certificates.
