Each year the State Treasurer's Office conducts the “Wyoming Windfall,” in which several million dollars are available to rightful owners.
The catch name for the Unclaimed Property Division of the STO, Wyoming Windfall money includes wages, uncashed money orders, oil and gas royalties, stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
State Treasurer Joe Meyer says the Wyoming Windfall begins Sunday, February 6th. Phone banks will be open from 7:30 am to 6 pm. It will also run Monday through Friday, February 7th through 11th. After February 11th, phone banks will be open from 8 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday.
Treasurer Meyer stressed that Unclaimed Property is not a scam, nor is it the result of winning a contest. “This money belongs to the owners or rightful heirs,” Meyer said. He added that the average claim is less than $100; however, some owners have claimed $100,000 or more.
