Does the state of Texas owe you some money?
Do you have unclaimed money that is due you? It could be a forgotten savings account that a favorite aunt established many years ago for one of your children. Or perhaps it could be a stack full of old deeds, heirlooms and a diamond ring stashed in an abandoned safety deposit box.
Forgotten and misplaced windfalls belong to 183 persons in Cherokee County.
Susan Combs, Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, recently announced the unclaimed property list.
This year's list includes 152,000 individuals for whom the state is holding $250 or more in forgotten funds.
Persons wanting more information about the unclaimed Property Program and the amount of unclaimed money in this area may contact her office at (800) 654-3463 or (512) 463- 3120 in Austin.
Those preferring to begin the claim process electronically may use the online database at www.window. state.tx.us/up. There is no deadline to file a claim and the money will remain there until it is claimed.
