‘Cash It’ expansion of unclaimed property recovery program

PIERRE, S.D. (WNAX) – Many folks across South Dakota may soon be getting a check in the mail, for real.

It’s a new program started by State Treasurer Josh Haeder called “Cash It.”

Haeder says it is an expansion of their unclaimed property recovery program.

Haeder says he wants to make sure people read the letter when they get it.

The Treasurers office holds the unclaimed accounts and tries to find the owners. Haeder says they get about $70-80 million a year in lost money and currently have a balance of about $600 million.
