Salisbury’s staff recovers more than $623,000 in unclaimed property for residents

BRADDOCK, April 18 – State Rep. Abigail Salisbury announced today that her staff has helped residents of her legislative district recover more than $623,000 in unclaimed property since she took office.

Salisbury said her staff helped locate $365,000 in unclaimed property for one constituent, $258,544 for another constituent and smaller amounts for other residents.    

“I’m thrilled that we were able to help residents recover this property,” said Salisbury, D-Allegheny. “It’s always a great feeling when we can connect someone with services or help them find solutions to state-related problems, but it’s even more exciting to be a part of their joy when we help them recover lost property.

“The state Treasury reports that it is holding more than $4.5 billion in unclaimed property and that one in 10 Pennsylvanians has property waiting for them. We want to help find more of that property right here in District 34. I encourage everyone to stop by or give us a call so we can search the database.”

Salisbury also reminded residents of other services her office can provide.

“My talented staff can assist in so many ways, from helping people apply for Property Tax/Rent Rebates, home energy assistance and other state programs, to solving problems involving PennDOT and other agencies, to providing free notary services. Even if folks don’t need help, I urge them to stop by and share their thoughts on improving life in the district. I want residents to know that their ideas and concerns matter and that their priorities are my priorities in Harrisburg.”

Residents needing help can visit Salisbury’s district office at 501 Braddock Ave. in Braddock Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or call the office at 412-273-3400.
