Treasury Returns More Than $200,000 in Unclaimed Property to Residents and Businesses in Clearfield & Elk Counties at Events Hosted by Rep. Armanini

Harrisburg, PA - Treasurer Stacy Garrity and state Rep. Mike Armanini (R-75) announced today that more than $200,000 in unclaimed property is being returned to residents and businesses in Clearfield and Elk counties following two recent events hosted by Rep. Armanini.

“It’s always a great day when we help folks find their unclaimed property. Working with Rep. Armanini and his staff was fantastic, and I’m excited that we’ll be returning money to so many hardworking Pennsylvanians. I encourage everyone to search our website for themselves and their loved ones – you never know who may be owed unclaimed property.”

“I was so pleased to partner up with Treasurer Garrity in bringing this service to my constituents. Bringing the Pennsylvania Treasury right here to DuBois and St. Marys to help people find unclaimed property was a complete success. My office will plan another event, as I’m hearing from many constituents who were upset they missed it but were happy to hear we’ll be doing it again. Thank you to Treasurer Garrity and her team.”

Representative Mike Armanini (R-75)

Residents and business owners stopped by Rep. Armanini’s district offices in St. Marys and DuBois on January 23 and 30, respectively, where they were helped in their search for unclaimed property by a member of Treasury’s outreach team. In total, $202,244 worth of unclaimed property was identified and is now in the process of being returned to the rightful owners.

Some of the most notable returns include $22,000 to an individual resident and about $6,478.35 to the nonprofit organization Purrfect Paws Cat Rescue, which works to ensure the safe and humane rescuing of stray cats and kittens.

“The return to Purrfect Paws is a great example of the fact that unclaimed property doesn’t just belong to individuals. It’s smart for organizations and businesses to search – and be sure to search for common misspellings and alternative names, too!”

Unclaimed property can include dormant bank accounts, uncashed checks, insurance policies, contents of forgotten safe deposit boxes and more. State law requires businesses to report unclaimed property to Treasury after three years of dormancy.

Treasury is working to return more than $4.5 billion in unclaimed property to its rightful owners. In the last fiscal year, ending June 30, 2023, Treasury returned the most unclaimed property ever in a single year – almost $274 million.
