Tennessee Treasury Unclaimed Property Division Helping Tennesseans Claim Money At Hamilton County Fair

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

In FY17, The Tennessee Treasury Department’s Unclaimed Property Division returned 43,482 claims, resulting in $48 million in missing money that was returned to its rightful owners.
This marks the highest number of claims and dollars returned by the program in a single year.
In an effort to continue to reunite Tennesseans with their missing property, representatives from Treasury’s Unclaimed Property Division will be heading out to events around the state. The third of these events will be at the Hamilton County Fair in Chattanooga on Saturday and Sunday.
 
Fair-goers are encouraged to stop by the Unclaimed Property booth to search www.ClaimItTN.gov for missing money. If property is found, the owner can file a claim right there, and Division representatives will be on-hand to answer any questions about the claim or claim process.
 
The Unclaimed Property Division has already visited fairs in both Memphis and Nashville, where several people have been reunited with their missing money. To continue with this effort, the Division will be making stops at events across the state throughout September and October.
 
Hamilton County Fair (Chattanooga)
Saturday, Sept. 23, 10 AM – 6 PM
