State Treasurer Clint Zweifel is asking Missourians attending the State Fair in Sedalia to check his Unclaimed Property list for their name.
The Treasurerâ€™s Unclaimed Property team will be available to help Missourians search for and claim their property. Treasurer Zweifel holds more than $822 million in Unclaimed Property for more than 4.8 million owners. He is also asking fairgoers to help him return the military medals he protects as Unclaimed Property.
At the State Fair last year, 653 attendees claimed a total of $58,000 in Unclaimed Property.
One in 10 Missourians has Unclaimed Property, and the average return is $300. Treasurer Zweifel receives new Unclaimed Property every week, and since taking office in 2009, he has returned more than $204 million to more than 700,000 accounts, nearly half of all Unclaimed Property returned in state history.
Treasurer Zweifel also protects more than 100 military medals and insignia. In the last five years, the Treasurer has returned more than 60 medals to veterans and their families. Thanks to a recently-passed law, Treasurer Zweifel is able to share the last known owner of the safe deposit box in which military medals and insignia are found.

Missourians can search for, claim, email results and donate Unclaimed Property anytime at ShowMeMoney.com. Zweifel noted his office never charges fees of any kind to return Unclaimed Property.
