The names were added to the database of unclaimed property owners in calendar year 2012 through late January 2013.

In all, the State Treasurerís Office is holding more than $125 million for more than 350,000 Nebraskans and former Nebraskans, Stenberg said.

"The search is well worth the time and effort. Many people are surprised at what they find and are grateful for the service,Ē Stenberg said.

The Treasurerís Office does not charge for the service.

Property included in the 2013 report is valued at more than $17.8 million. The 10 largest properties, ranging from $80,000 to $230,000, are identified by name in the report. The owners of the top 10 properties are listed in Douglas, Lancaster, and Sarpy counties. The tabloid contains 103 properties over $10,000.

The Nebraska Unclaimed Property statutes were enacted into law in 1969. Since then, more than $141 million has been paid out to rightful owners. So far in 2013, more than $1.7 million has been paid with January being a particularly productive month.

Stenberg said the Treasurerís Office is making a strong effort to locate the owners of especially large properties that have been on the unclaimed property rolls for some time. In January alone, the Unclaimed Property Division returned $1.2 million to rightful owners, including claims of $101,000 to an Omaha couple for a real estate refund, $130,000 to a Lincoln woman from her deceased brotherís insurance, and $66,000 split between two brothers from their deceased uncleís savings account.

ďIn the 2013 report, we feature several Nebraskans who received unclaimed property through our office in the past year -- money they didnít know they had went to pay bills, buy season basketball tickets, repair a sewer line, celebrate studentsí grades, and improve a rural community," he said.

Readers are encouraged to look for their own names as well as the names of relatives, businesses, and friends. Each name is listed by last-known county of residence. Readers who find their names or the names of their businesses or of deceased relatives should use one of the following methods to file claims:

ē Check the Nebraska State Treasurerís website. Type a name in the box on the home page, or click on the Search for Unclaimed Property link in the left navigation pane. For amounts under $300, owners may be able to file their claims online through the website.

ē Call the Unclaimed Property Division at 1-877-572-9688 toll free outside of Lincoln or 402-471-8497 in Lincoln. Phone calls are taken between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.
