To date, her office has returned over $70,167,000 to Kentuckians.

This record amount of returns includes

* $1,095,795 returned to Kenton County

* $778,597 returned to Campbell County

* $952,928 returned to Boone County since she took office.

“One of my favorite things to do as Treasurer is to return people’s money to them,” Treasurer Ball said. “I am a big believer in property rights and I am proud of the success we have seen at the Treasury in returning a record amount of property to Kentuckians.”

The Kentucky State Treasurer administers Kentucky’s Unclaimed Property Fund. Unclaimed property generally consists of payroll checks, unclaimed safety deposit boxes, old life insurance policies, stocks, and more that have remained unclaimed by their owners after several years.

The Treasury’s Unclaimed Property Division works diligently to reunite these items with their owners, or in cases where the owner is deceased, the owner’s family.

Campbell Countians still have over $11,604,446 of unclaimed property waiting to be claimed.

Boone Countians still have over $9,637,233 of unclaimed property waiting to be claimed.

Kenton Countians still have over $23,517,365 of unclaimed property waiting to be claimed.
