AUGUSTA, Maine (WMTW) Check your mail: The Maine state treasurer has sent out nearly 3,000 postcards indicating you have property on the unclaimed property list.
The money, part of the treasurer’s unclaimed property database, comes from third parties, like former employers, banks and other companies.
If you did not receive a postcard, you may still be on the list.
“Postcards were sent to select individuals with accounts that hold $1,000 or more, but there are hundreds of millions of dollars in additional property,” state treasurer Terry Hayes said in a statement. “Every citizen needs to review the list of Unclaimed Property. It should be just as routine as filing taxes each year.”
