Need some extra funds before the holidays? Who doesn’t?
Santa could come early; you could have unclaimed funds and not even know it.
It’s like a treasure hunt.
Utah State Treasurer Richard K. Ellis is reminding Utahns to check if they have unclaimed assets.
The unclaimed property includes things like checking and savings accounts, over payments, insurance checks, utility refunds, dividends, stocks and contents of safe deposit boxes.
All you have to do to find out if you have unclaimed property is check online with the Utah State Treasury.
Ellis said the Utah State Treasury was able to return more than $21 million to rightful owners during the 2015 fiscal year, a new record.
He said the new high is about a 34-percent increase over 2014's high of $15.8 million.
Lived in other states? You can check those too.
If you do have unclaimed property, you’ll need to fill out the form available online and mail it in with proof the property is yours.
There is no charge for this service.
