PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota’s treasurer says the state has so far received $65 million in unclaimed property this year.

Treasurer Rich Sattgast says the amount is consistent with the $62 million to $65 million estimates he reported to the state Legislature last year.

The sum includes account balances and other items of value that businesses, governments and other institutions must turn over to the state where they reside when the owner can’t be found. For example, savings and checking accounts, life insurance policies, overpayments or rebates and gift cards.

Sattgast says one out of every four people in the state has unclaimed property.

People can check if they are owed money from the state using the Treasurer’s Office website.
