WAYNESBURG – With the Pennsylvania Treasury holding more than $4.5 billion in unclaimed property, Rep. Bud Cook (R-Greene/Washington) is hosting a series of events to reunite people with money or items that belong to them.

“One in 10 Pennsylvanians are owed unclaimed property, including many here in Greene and Washington counties,” Cook said. “We are here to help people determine if they have unclaimed property and, if so, to help them claim it.”

The unclaimed property events are scheduled as follows: 
Waynesburg Office: Friday, Jan. 19, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The office is located at 1640 E. High St., Waynesburg.
California Office: Thursday, Jan. 25, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The office is located at California, Center in the Woods, 130 Woodland Court, Brownsville.
West Greene Office: Tuesday, Jan. 30, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The office is located at 1367 Hargus Creek Road, Waynesburg. 

Unclaimed property can include dormant bank accounts, abandoned stocks, uncashed checks and more. Treasury also has military decorations and memorabilia, often turned over from abandoned or forgotten safe deposit boxes.

People who wish to check the unclaimed property database on their own may do so at patreasury.gov

“Please remember you should NEVER pay a fee to reclaim property that belongs to you,” Cook said. “Claims may be made directly through Treasury, or simply contact our office and we will help at no charge.”

People who plan to participate in the events are asked to RSVP online at RepBudCook.com or by calling 724-929-2660.
