FRANKFORT, Ky. — Over $16 million in unclaimed property was returned to Kentuckians in 2020, Treasurer Allison Ball announced. The Treasurer’s Office completed more individual property claim returns than the previous year, despite the pandemic and the implementation of reduced in-person staff and telework practices.
Ball has returned more unclaimed property than any previous treasurer, returning more than $105 million since first taking office.
“The pandemic has required a host of adjustments and modifications for workplaces across our commonwealth, the Treasury included,” said Lorran Hart Ferguson, unclaimed property director and deputy chief of staff. “I am proud of the Unclaimed Property Division’s tenacity and commitment to return this property despite the hardships the pandemic presented.”
