Unclaimed Property visit to Converse, Niobrara counties postponed

Apr 1, 2020

The Unclaimed Property team has cancelled upcoming outreach events.

CHEYENNE – Following recommendations issued by Gov. Mark Gordon on restricting travel for state employees, the Unclaimed Property Division of the State Treasurer’s Office is postponing its outreach visits scheduled for Lusk, Glenrock and Douglas on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“We are disappointed that we won’t be able to make this visit and help local residents claim their ‘lost’ money that has been turned over to the state,” said Jeff Robertson, administrator of unclaimed property. “But at this time, we need to do our part to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.”

A make-up date has not been scheduled at this time, although the department hopes to make it to the area sometime later this summer or in the fall. The state of Wyoming is holding over $91 million belonging to current and former residents of Wyoming – including approximately $2 million for those with a last known address in Converse and Niobrara counties.

Those who would like to see if they are entitled to any of this money are encouraged to visit www.mycash.wyo.gov and watch a 2-minute video on the left side of the page that explains how to search and then claim money. If assistance is needed, residents can call 307-777-5590 and speak to a claims specialist.
