Press Release

Rhode Island Treasurer Seth Magaziner today announced that checks will be mailed to more than 8,000 Rhode Islanders this week under the his new YOUR MONEY program, which automatically reunites Rhode Islanders with their unclaimed property.

"For hard-working Rhode Island families, a little extra cash can make a big difference," said Treasurer Magaziner. "Through the YOUR MONEY initiative, we are now able to efficiently reunite many Rhode Islanders with missing money that is rightfully theirs."

Treasurer Magaziner's YOUR MONEY initiative matches unclaimed property lists with known addresses, which means that for thousands of people, their missing money can be returned to them automatically – with no paperwork required. In the past, every resident had to check the state's online database to see if they have unclaimed property and then submit a claim form.
