We are continuing to explore new ways to reach potential claimants with information about these unclaimed funds, and could use the help of Milwaukee County citizens to find them. “

To find out about who is entitled to this unclaimed money, people can access information about the names and amounts on the County Treasurer’s web site at Enter “unclaimed funds” in the site search field and follow the instructions for viewing the list, download and file a claim form.
