Currently, the Unclaimed Property Division is holding over $379 million in unclaimed funds. This year alone we have already given back over $27 million. The state holds the money in a custodial capacity until the money can be returned to the rightful owners. “Our goal is to put money back into the hands of South Dakotans,” Treasurer Rich Sattgast said. “That money ultimately makes its way into our economy which is good for our state.” To check for unclaimed property, visit www. sdtreasurer.gov or call the unclaimed property hotline at 1-866-357-2547 to talk to an unclaimed property representative directly.
