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.

According to the San Diego Business Journal:
San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister says he has nearly 800 unclaimed cash accounts amounting to almost $200,000 that he’s trying to return to the rightful owners.
The funds in the accounts came from individuals who have done business with any county department in the past three years and are overpayments. The majority of the money, some $117,000, is property tax refunds, but another $94,000 is from refunds by various county departments consumers have dealt with. The largest refund is for about $8,700 while the lowest is $10.
“We hope that the owners come forward before September 14, 2012 and claim their refunds,” McAllister said.
After that deadline, state law allows unclaimed countywide funds to be turned over to the county’s general fund; property tax refunds require four years before the county can officially take them.
The county-wide refund listing is available here in PDF format.
To claim anything found on the list of the unclaimed accounts, go to www.sdtreastax.com, or call 877-829-4732.

”Prudential is doing the right thing by ensuring those who are owed death benefits receive that cash,” State Treasurer Kurt Schuller said.
Prudential is currently cross-referencing millions of names in databases to make sure death benefits are sent to Unclaimed Property Units in California,Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi,Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota,Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington and Washington, D.C. as well asWisconsin.
The Wisconsin State Treasury has received 1,078 names from Prudential and we have placed a PDF document and Excel spreadsheet with those names on our homepage, www.wismissingmoney.com.
