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.
