Louisiana Treasury: $ 540K in unclaimed property checks coming to NWLA

(KTAL / KMSS) – Check your mailbox: more than 3,000 checks in unclaimed money totaling more than half a million dollars are coming to residents of Northwest Louisiana, according to the Louisiana Treasury.

Louisiana State Treasurer John Schroder announced earlier this week that 27,125 Unclaimed Property checks would be sent to Louisianans in every parish in the state on Thursday, totaling $ 4.8 million.

Data provided by the state shows that $ 540,164 is coming to 3,196 residents in Northwest Louisiana.

Of those, the most are coming to people in Caddo Parish, where 1,820 people should be getting checks totaling more than $ 296,850. More than 700 checks are headed to Bossier Parish, totaling more than $ 134,742.

In De Soto Parish, 136 checks are on the way totaling just under $ 23,400.

With more than $ 900 million in Unclaimed Property to return, Louisiana Treasury says it has been using technology to increase the rate of return of Unclaimed Property. Through data matches, Treasury is able to update addresses and issue checks for money that many recipients didn’t even know they were owed.

One in six individuals in Louisiana has Unclaimed Property, with claims averaging $ 900. To find out if you have Unclaimed Property, search at www.LaCashClaim.org or call the Treasury’s Unclaimed Property Division toll-free at 1-888-925-4127 (Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
