Connecticut unveils a campaign for residents to find unclaimed property
State Treasurer Denise Nappier is launching the latest campaign to return unclaimed money to Connecticut residents.
Nappier has scheduled a news conference on Thursday to announce the "CT Big List initiative," which includes a website - www.ctbiglist.com - where people can check to see if they have any dormant balances in savings and checking accounts, un-cashed checks and other financial assets that may have been forgotten.
Nappier's office said a special newspaper supplement with the names of more than 54,000 individuals, businesses and organizations will be published Thursday in 16 daily newspapers.
During the two years ending June 30, 2013, Nappier's office said $150.4 million was returned to more than 36,000 individuals and businesses, more than any other two-year period. Since 1999, more than $421 million has been returned.
