New UP Holder Reporting Method Coming Soon
Starting Monday, October 3, 2016, a new holder reporting method will be available on the Nebraska State Treasurer’s website. Holders will be able to create profiles, load their records, and submit their reports without having to leave our website. Holders will have the option to manually enter property and owner information or to use an Excel template to upload records. Once records are loaded, the holder can easily edit or delete properties until ready to submit the report. After a report is submitted, it will be archived on the holder’s profile for future reference. Holders will no longer need to use a third party program to create their report files and submit them to the Nebraska Unclaimed Property Division.

  • Hello, Ginny,May 6, 2016
    I would like to let you know that I have received the money. I cannot thank you enough for your help and kindness. To tell you the truth, when I received a letter from you two months ago, I thought it was some kind of scam at first. But I am happy I was wrong. Your support and kindness made me trust you. I will never forget all you did for me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Thanks for the speedy service, I received the check yesterday. If you or your boss is looking for feedback, I like the fact that Nebraska is on board with using technology. E-mailing me and having me just send scanned documents to you was really great. I am in the process of recovering some of Phyllis's property in Missouri, and it is a slow process that involves regular mail, and that's it. Thanks again.

State Treasurer Don Stenberg Says Unclaimed Property Is ‘the Real Deal’

Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg says unclaimed property is “the real deal” as he explains that the Treasurer’s Office returned $11.7 million in 2014 to Nebraskans, former Nebraskans, and heirs. In an interview in the Nebraska Capitol, Stenberg tells about the surprise and joy that come with the return of unclaimed property, and he discusses the benefits Nebraskans received as a result of nationwide audits of life insurance companies. The audits were conducted by various states with the assistance of a third-party auditor, Verus Financial LLC of Waterbury, CT.
