Rep. Bizzarro to host annual ‘Treasury Hunt’ Friday

Office staff ready to assist residents in collecting unclaimed property

ERIE, March 16 – Overlooked mistakes like a misspelled name or out-of-date addresses have resulted in the Pennsylvania State Treasury collecting more than $3.5 billion in unclaimed property from state residents.

State Rep. Ryan Bizzarro will welcome residents to his district office from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday to search for their unclaimed property during his annual Pot O’Gold Treasury Hunt on St. Patrick’s Day.

“The state estimates 1 in 10 residents have unclaimed property, and my staff is willing to sit alongside you to search for and file the correct paperwork needed in order to collect what is rightfully yours,” Bizzarro said.

Unclaimed property includes uncashed checks, paychecks, lost stocks and bonds, contents of safe deposit boxes, old bank accounts, expired gift cards/certificates and proceeds from the demutualization of insurance companies.

Located at 1101 Peninsula Drive, Suite 213, Erie, PA 16505, Bizzarro’s district office is ready to assist all residents in searching for their unclaimed property. Free notary service will be on hand for claims and findings that apply.
