Kentucky State Treasurer Todd Hollenbach serves as custodian
of all unclaimed property surrendered to the state that is presumed lost or
abandoned. Each year, the Kentucky Treasury returns millions of dollars in
unclaimed property to Kentucky residents.
“Most of the properties are in the form of cash,” Treasurer
Hollenbach stated, “from old insurance policies to stocks and bonds to leftover
bank accounts. There are also more than
20-thousand unclaimed items stored in the Treasury vault including a Joe
DiMaggio autographed baseball, some silver bullion, jewelry, gold coins and
hundreds of military items.”
Through his unclaimed property program, Treasure Finders,
Treasurer Hollenbach has returned more than eighty-seven million ($87,000,000)
dollars of lost and abandoned property to thousands of Kentuckians and is still
in possession of more than four hundred million ($400,000,000) dollars which he
hopes to return to its rightful owners.
