According to a press release by Arkansas State Auditor Charlie Daniels, the state will now allow Arkansans to file for unclaimed properties under the faster electronic method. This will be a significant cost savings for both the State of Arkansas and the claimants themselves. It will certainly eliminate one of the reasons many people do not file for smaller amounts of missing money – the cost of postage. It will also reduce wait times.
The entire volunteer team at Discovered Money applauds Mr. Daniels for his efforts in making e-filing a reality in Arkansas. This is a monumental step forward for the public and we hope other states follow suit in the coming years.
