State Has $2.7 Million in Unclaimed Funds Waiting for Washington Countians
Posted on: 04/16/2013

Today, the Ohio Department of Commerce will publish its latest annual unclaimed funds list for Washington County. Dennis Ginty is with the commerce department…
 
“Unclaimed funds generally are funds that have become dormant or forgotten.  Some common examples are dormant checking and savings accounts, forgotten rent and utility deposits, an uncashed check, or maybe an uncashed insurance policy.”
 
The published list in today’s Marietta Times will highlight 812 unclaimed funds of at least $50, which total more than $830,000. But Ginty says there are actually about 20,000 listings of unclaimed funds in Washington County that total more than $2.7 million.
 
“The Ohio Department of Commerce has its online treasure hunt at www.com.ohio.gov Ginty says. "Ohioans can go to that website and just type in their name and see if they have unclaimed funds. They can also check for family members or friends. All named accounts of $10 or more will show up on the division’s online treasure hunt.”
 
Ginty says you can start the process of claiming that money at the web site. You can also call the Division of Unclaimed Funds at 1-877-644-6823.
