The state treasurer's office is hosting a series of events throughout Nebraska to help residents find money they didn't know they had.

The Unclaimed Property Division of the treasurer's office will be headed across the state to help Nebraskans search and file claims before the end of the year.

The office says it has returned more than $6 million in property to rightful owners so far in 2013. The amount represents nearly 10,900 claims.

State Treasurer Don Stenberg says his office is holding more than $125 million of property for more than 350,000 Nebraska residents, former residents, or their heirs.

Unclaimed property consists of cash and other personal assets that are considered lost or abandoned after an owner cannot be located for a specified period of time. The property is turned over to the state by banks, insurance companies, merchants, and other businesses.

According to the treasurer's office the most common forms of unclaimed property are dividends, dormant accounts, gift certificates, insurance payments, matured CDs, lost IRAs, wages, rebates, stock and mutual funds, utility deposits, and abandoned safe deposit boxes.
