BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — If you didn't win the lottery, you might just be due some extra money from the state, just in time for the holidays.
The latest list of all unclaimed property holdings has been released by the Louisiana State Treasury.
Officials tell us 1 in 6 people have unclaimed property, and the average refund is $300 to $400. Where the money comes from can vary. From old checking and savings accounts and uncashed payroll checks, to insurance proceeds, certificates of deposits, and utility deposits, just to name a few.
"If you don't see your name, it doesn't mean we don't have your money, but if you see your name or family members or friends it means we got that money in over the past year," John Kennedy, State Treasurer, said.
