Free money could be waiting for you.



Wausau resident Sandy Wimmer wouldn't have believed it either until her daughter visited the state treasurer's unclaimed property website. There, they both learned Sandy was owed more than $2,000!

It turned out Sandy had an insurance policy when she was a child that she never cashed in. A few weeks later, after sending in some forms to prove her identity, Sandy got a check in the mail—just in time for her holiday shopping.

Sandy's is just one of many stories of money lost and found. State Treasurer Kurt Schuller says the state has $411 million to return to people who have never claimed their money.

Do you have unclaimed property just sitting out there? There's a decent chance you do. Newsline 9's Daniel Woodruff will show how you can take back your money. Don't miss that story Thursday, February 23, on Newsline 9 at 10.
