Treasurer Stacy Garrity Announces Return of More Than $28,000 in Unclaimed Property to Pleasant Hills Borough

Pleasant Hills, PA - Pennsylvania Treasurer Stacy Garrity and Pleasant Hills Borough Manager Kelly Theiss announced today that more than $28,000 in unclaimed property has been returned to Pleasant Hills Borough in Allegheny County.

“Making such a large return to the borough is exciting, because this money was meant to benefit the residents of Pleasant Hills, and now it’s back where it belongs to do just that. I’m glad to safeguard unclaimed property here at Treasury, but it doesn’t belong to the state – and getting it back into the right hands is one of my top priorities.”

“Every little bit can make a difference, and we’re happy to have found this money with the help of Treasury’s Bureau of Unclaimed Property. We appreciate the efforts of Treasurer Garrity and the State Treasurer’s office to return these funds to Pleasant Hills Borough.”

The $28,600.87 returned to Pleasant Hills includes 5 individual properties ranging in value from $95.53 to $25,708.34. The oldest property dates back to 2011, while the most recent is from 2018. Properties returned include funds from accounts payable checks, a claims payment check, and a credit balance. Borough officials will decide how the funds are used.

“I am thrilled to hear the great news for my constituents in Pleasant Hills. I truly appreciate Treasurer Garrity’s efforts in bringing the community’s money home.”

Senator Devlin Robinson (R-37)

“This is the way government should work. I’m pleased to see the funds returned to the borough. I look forward to continuing to work with my local governments to identify any unclaimed property that should be returned to them.”

Representative Andrew Kuzma (R-39)

Treasurer Garrity has returned more than $16.5 million to 75 local government agencies, including counties and municipalities, since taking office. In the last fiscal year, ending June 30, 2023, Treasury returned the most unclaimed property ever in a single year – almost $274 million.

Treasury is working to return more than $4.5 billion in unclaimed property to its rightful owners. More than one in ten Pennsylvanians is owed unclaimed property, and the average claim is worth about $1,600.

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.
