It was good news for one parish resident. Recently he received
$1,715.41 and it came from a Louisiana Citizens Insurance class action settlement.
State Treasury spokesperson Sarah Mulhearn said they do not release the name of people receiving money from the Treasury’s unclaimed property account. The treasury held an unclaimed property event recently in Shreveport and returned over $324,000 to residents of the state.
“It’s a great pleasure to give people money that’s rightfully theirs,” said State Treasurer Ron Henson. “It doesn’t take long, it’s an easy process, and it’s a free service.”
The State Treasury holds any unclaimed money or property that belongs to Louisiana residents. You can search for missing money online 24/7 at www.latreasury.com or call the Treasury’s toll-free hotline at 1-888-925-4127 (Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
