Much like the state’s version of unclaimed property, Jefferson County is trying to locate these property holders in and close to Jefferson County to return money to them from the County.

“Many folks move and change their address but fail to notify the different county agencies that maybe collecting money for them from court judgments, restitutions of some kind, refund checks, uncashed checks etc,” VanSteenberg said.

“We would like to get this money back to its proper owners before we have to escheat it to the State Treasury,” VanSteenberg said. “It will be a much simpler process if we are able to return it to the proper owner rather than the protocols the State Treasury, Bureau of Unclaimed Property demands.

Also, by coming forward to collect their money, it will enable us to obtain their correct and current address so any future payments will be able to be delivered without delay.”

if anyone knows any of these individuals please let them know to contact the Jefferson County Treasurer’s Office at 814-849-1609 to make arrangements for payment.
