Through your efforts in searching for and claiming unclaimed property, we've successfully returned over $21 million dollars to the rightful owners so far this Fiscal Year. This new high is also more than a 34% increase over last year's all time high of more than $15.8 million.
Treasurer Ellis' support of new branding, website re-design and public relations efforts has significantly improved the public awareness of money waiting to be claimed. Local radio and TV stations have also helped us to get the word out to many more people. The addition of coordinated efforts to use Facebook, Twitter and Youtube to share the message of our new and improved mycash.utah.gov website resulted in record numbers of traffic to the search pages on our site. We are now on track to have 2 million page views over the past 12 months.
Thank you for helping us achieve our mission of returning unclaimed money to the rightful owners. That said, we receive millions more every year. So search regularly and let friends and family know to do the same. Your lost money misses you!
