State Treasurer of Iowa

The Treasurer's Office

The State Treasurer serves Iowans in many ways.

The Treasurer is the State’s chief financial officer, depositing and investing State funds while also ensuring they are available when needed. The Treasurer serves as trustee and custodian of Iowa’s three state pension funds and invests billions of dollars in State operating funds.

The Treasurer is also responsible for administering various consumer programs to help individuals save for important expenses. College Savings Iowa and the IAdvisor 529 Plan help families save for the growing costs of education on a tax-advantaged basis. IAble, the state’s Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) plan, helps individuals with disabilities and their support systems save for qualified expenses while protecting their eligibility for SSI, Medicaid and other needs-based benefits.

Additionally, the State Treasurer safeguards unclaimed property that has been turned over by banks, insurance companies, government agencies and other businesses and works to locate the owners through the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt.
