Greeting from the Treasurer:
Each year Kansas businesses send me the names of people with bank accounts, wages, stocks and dividends that have been abandoned. As State Treasurer, it is my job to reunite those people with their unclaimed financial assets. I use our website, in addition to many other initiatives, to bring the unclaimed property program directly to the people of Kansas. Please feel free to check your name by calling 800-432-0386 (toll free) or 785-296-4165. You may also check your name online from this site by clicking here.
