Phillips-Hill to Connect Unclaimed Property with Rightful Owners at Events Planned for May 2

SPRINGFIELD TWP – Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) will host two special events this week to connect local citizens with unclaimed property currently being held by the Pennsylvania Treasury. Unclaimed assets, often forgotten or overlooked, are easily accessible through the Pennsylvania Treasury Department’s Unclaimed Property program.

“Many individuals are unaware of the financial assets they may have left dormant with banks, insurance companies, or other entities. This money is being held by the state until the rightful owner claims it,” Phillips-Hill said.  “Our goal with these events is to raise awareness of unclaimed property sitting in the Treasury’s vault and connect it with its owner.”

Southern York County residents are encouraged to visit the Pennsylvania Treasury Department’s Unclaimed Property database at to search for unclaimed property. Constituents who have unclaimed property are encouraged to stop by the following events across York County on Thursday, May 2, that will feature staff from the Pennsylvania Treasurer Stacy Garrity’s office to assist. A notary public will also be present to help local residents with unclaimed property that exceeds $5,000.

Mobile Office in Springettsbury Township
When: Thursday, May 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Location: York Area United Fire & Rescue, 50 Commons Drive, York

Unclaimed Property Event at the District Office
When: Thursday, May 2, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Location: Phillips-Hill’s District Office, 6872 Susquehanna Trail S., Springfield Township

For those unable to attend these events, Phillips-Hill’s team will provide assistance to help constituents recover unclaimed property during normal office hours at her district office. Residents can also apply for unclaimed property through the Treasury’s website.

Phillips-Hill encourages constituents to take advantage of these opportunities.

“We want to provide the resources to connect as many people as possible with their own money,” she added.

Unclaimed property encompasses financial assets that have been inactive or unclaimed for at least one year. Per state regulations, these assets are transferred to the Pennsylvania Treasury Department after a period of dormancy.
