Treasurer Diossa Returns More Than $2.4 Million in Unclaimed Property to Nearly 9,000 Rhode Islanders This Holiday Season

Published on Wednesday, December 06, 2023

Providence, RI – Today, Rhode Island General Treasurer James A. Diossa announced that more than $2.4 million in unclaimed property funds is being sent to nearly 9,000 Rhode Islanders this holiday season through Treasury’s Your Money program. This amount adds to the $16.6 million that has already been distributed in 2023. Checks of up to $2,500 will be mailed to individuals starting this week.

“The holiday season is all about giving back, and my team has worked day and night to make sure unclaimed property is wrapped and delivered to thousands of households across the Ocean State,” said General Treasurer Diossa. “Putting money back in the pockets of Rhode Islanders means more money to support our state’s economy, especially during this time of year. I am excited for folks to receive the gift of unclaimed property this December!”

Unclaimed property consists of cash and assets that the Treasurer’s office recovers from businesses, banks, landlords, safe deposit boxes, and utility companies. The property is kept safe until it can be returned to its rightful owner. The Your Money Program proactively matches Rhode Islanders with their unclaimed property when possible.
