Unclaimed property events scheduled in Nebraska

By: KLKN Newsroom

The state treasurer's office is hosting a series of events throughout Nebraska to help reunite residents with their unclaimed property.  The treasurer's office says it has returned more than $6 million in property to rightful owners so far in 2013.

The amount represents nearly 10,900 claims.  State treasurer Don Stenberg says in a statement that his office is holding more than $125 million of property for more than 350,000 Nebraska residents, former residents, or their heirs.

There are nine scheduled outreach events between now and January, including one at the Nebraska State Fair. A full list is available on the state treasurer's website at http://www.treasurer.org/
