$200 Million Returned Milestone in Great Iowa Treasure Hunt

State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald’s Great Iowa Treasure Hunt has reached a milestone of $200 million in unclaimed property returned. “Since the program’s inception in 1983, we have returned $200 million through the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt,” Fitzgerald said. “Vona Burbank of Urbandale helped us reach our milestone. Her claim of $6,723 put our returns at just over $200 million! This milestone reinforces our dedication to reuniting unclaimed property with its rightful owners.”

The Great Iowa Treasure Hunt has returned property to more than 479,000 Iowans. “We are dedicated to helping Iowans reunite with their missing money and property,” stated Fitzgerald. Common forms of unclaimed property include savings or checking accounts, stocks, uncashed checks, life insurance policies, utility security deposits and safe deposit box contents.
