Treasury returns $451,995 in unclaimed property to New Orleans area residents


BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — The Louisiana Department of the Treasury has returned $451,995 in unclaimed money to thousands of New Orleans area residents.

State Treasurer John Kennedy, in a news release Monday, said the weekend event at Lakeside Shopping Center in Metairie was very successful, having returned hundreds of thousands of dollars in just 6½ hours.

The Unclaimed Property program has returned more than $373 million to almost 600,000 Louisiana citizens since 1972. A few times a year, Treasury employees go to shopping malls to increase awareness about the program.

Kennedy encouraged residents who could not attend Saturday's event to search for missing money online at http://www.LATreasury.com or call the Treasury's toll-free hotline at 1-888-925-4127.
