During the event, the division will post live statistics and information about unclaimed property. Several guests, including claimants, nonprofit organizations and elected officials, will join the online conversation to share their unclaimed property experiences.

Before and during the event, Utahns are encouraged to share information about unclaimed property on social media and invite their friends and family to find and claim their lost money on mycash.utah.gov.

Individuals who tag three friends in a comment on an unclaimed property post about the webathon and share the post in the week preceding and during the webathon will be entered into a drawing to win an Amazon gift card.

Unclaimed property staff will be online during the event and ready to process the claims .

They are also prepared to answer questions and concerns by email and through the chat function.

Staff is also available to assist by phone, at 801-715-3300.
