West Virginia Adds More Unclaimed Property to State Website
The Office of the West Virginia State Treasurer has announced recent policy changes that increase the amount of unclaimed property appearing on the state's website (and, thus, available for online searches). According to the Treasury's press release, the threshold for listing property on the website has been reduced from $50 to $25. The same release notes that the department is soon to release an additional 13,000 items that are being held by the state for West Virginia residents. Kudos to the Mountaineer State for making efforts to reunite more owners with their property.
