“Tips to Finding Unclaimed Property” subject of December Seniors Count workshop
NASHUA – It is estimated that one in every ten citizens has presently unclaimed property owed to them. This property can be from savings or checking accounts, stocks, un-cashed dividends or payroll checks, refunds, trust distributions, life insurance policies, utility security deposits and other assets held by a third party owing to another individual or business.
Seniors interested in learning more about the unclaimed property program provided by the State of New Hampshire Treasury and the work done by the state’s Abandoned Property Division to get these funds back to the rightful owners are invited to attend the December Seniors Count workshop at the Nashua Senior Activity Center.
The free workshop will be held on Monday, December 14, 2015 beginning at 1:00pm.
Presenting the workshop will be Thomas P. McAnespie, Abandoned Property Director for the State of New Hampshire Treasury. He will be joined by a member of the Division’s Claims Representatives who will help those attending the workshop search for unclaimed property.
The presentation will also contain information on best practices for keeping funds active and not subject to unclaimed property transfer.
The Nashua Senior Activity Center is located at 70 Temple St. Please call Beth Todgham, Seniors Count-Nashua facilitator for Southern New Hampshire Services at (603) 889-3440 x 132 for more information.
