otter County residents who think they might have money in the state's Unclaimed Property database can search a list at an event hosted by the Texas Comptroller's office and Potter County Treasurer Leann Jennings.
Representatives from the Comptroller's office will help residents fill out claim forms and answer questions on Friday, May 24. The event will be held on the 11 floor of Santa Fe Building at 900 S. Polk in Amarillo.
The event goes from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Potter County residents currently have over 73,000 unclaimed properties totaling more than $7.9 million, according to the Comptroller's office.
"That money belongs to Texans, and it is important that we get it back into the right hands," said Texas Comptroller Susan Combs.
Combs estimates 1 in 4 Texans has money waiting to be claimed. Unclaimed property includes utility deposits or refunds, insurance proceeds, interest or royalty payments, dormant bank accounts, and abandoned safe deposit boxes.
