(Lincoln, NE) Treasurer John Murante announced today the 2019 Unclaimed Property Annual Report will be published in 16 Nebraska newspapers in the coming weeks, beginning March 10 in the Omaha World-Herald and the Scottsbluff Star-Herald.
“I encourage Nebraskans to check the Unclaimed Property Report for their own names and the names of their businesses, as well as the names of family members and friends. We may have property you are entitled to, and we want to reunite you with your money,” Treasurer Murante said.
“While the Unclaimed Property Report is a valuable way for the public to find out about any holdings they may not know about, I want to encourage everyone to check out our online database at treasurer.nebraska.gov/up/ which is constantly updated.”
The 2019 Tabloid represents the $19,835,822 in new unclaimed property reported since last year’s publication. The report will be published as a 48-page tabloid insert in 16 Nebraska newspapers, as required by State Statute, according to the following schedule:
