According to Nevada State Treasurer Kate Marshall, Nevadans claimed a record $32 million in property in Fiscal Year 2011.
The Nevada Treasurer's Office's Unclaimed Property Division returns unclaimed money and property to its rightful owners. Those owners are alerted to what's owed them by way of a website.
The total beats the old record by roughly $7 million. The Treasurer's Office said collections rose dramatically this fiscal year in large part because of more than $20 million in unclaimed property turned over as a result of the closing of Washington State Bank.
About 96,000 Nevadans' names were publicized in the process.
If you believe you should be the recipient of unclaimed money or property, you may go to the Unclaimed Property Division website. Once there, click on the yellow "Unclaimed Property" box and enter your name or the name of your business.
