South Carolina State Treasurer Curtis Loftis serves South Carolinians in many ways.
One such role is safeguarding more than $650 million in unclaimed property and working hard to return these lost funds to individuals, estates, businesses and more.
Every year the State Treasurer’s office works hard to find the rightful owners of large amounts of unclaimed property but there is also a process whereby individuals and business owners can check to see if they have unclaimed property.
And that is just what Laurens Mayor Nathan Senn did.
He checked with the State Treasurer’s office and discovered that the City was owed more than $5,100 in unclaimed funds, including a check from the SC Department of Revenue which was originally issued in August 2004 but never cashed.
“After 16 years, we finally have our money, and with it we will restore a beautiful fountain originally given to the City back in 1911,” Said Mayor Senn.
