(AUSTIN) — Comptroller Glenn Hegar has returned $2 billion in unclaimed property to its rightful owners since he took office in January 2015.
“I am proud of the commitment this office has made to reuniting unclaimed property with its rightful owners and that commitment is reflected with this landmark achievement,” Hegar said. “I encourage everyone to go to ClaimItTexas.gov and see if there is money waiting for them.”
Since the Unclaimed Property program began in 1962, Texas has returned more than $3 billion in unclaimed property to its rightful owners, with Hegar’s team returning more than two-thirds of that total in under eight years. Hegar’s administration reached $2 billion in unclaimed property returns last month, and the landmark threshold is comprised of a little more than 2 million individual payments.
