The checks ranged in size from as little as four-cents from a forgotten credit balance to a $43,000.00 check for unclaimed stocks and dividends up to $182,000 worth of lost payments to a medical company.
The State Treasurer serves as custodian of all property surrendered to the state that is presumed lost or abandoned.
Each year, the Kentucky Treasury returns millions of dollars in unclaimed property to Kentucky residents.
Since 2008, the Treasury has returned a record $64 million in unclaimed property.
