LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The Nevada State Treasurer’s Office is working to return over$1 billion in unclaimed property to Nevadans in honor of National Unclaimed Property Day on Thursday.
According to the state treasurer, one in every seven Nevadans has some unclaimed property, including unpaid life insurance benefits, forgotten bank accounts, and unused rebate cards. Currently, the state of Nevada is holding $1 billion in property, which Treasurer Zach Conine says his office will work to return to its “rightful owners.”
“The Treasurer’s Office has returned hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed property to Nevadans over the last five years,” Conine said. “As part of National Unclaimed Property Day, my Office is diligently working to return as much money to Nevadans as we can.”
The treasurer’s office reported that over $46 million in property was returned in 2022, and over $236 million has been returned since 2019.
Those looking to claim that property can submit a claim form via mail but must provide documents that prove ownership, such as a driver’s license, social security card, or a W-9 form for claims less than $500.
