Residents in Caddo and three neighboring parishes are owed more than $50 million in Unclaimed Property and can get help searching for their money at Mall St. Vincent in Shreveport on Saturday, April 1.
“Our Unclaimed Property team will be at the mall to help you look through our computer database and file a claim,” said State Treasurer Ron Henson. “The event is free to the public, and if you are lucky enough to find a large dollar amount, we’ll even notarize it for you free of charge. We always have a terrific turnout at these events. This past August we returned more than $114,300 to Shreveport area residents.”
The Treasury is holding more than $750 million in Unclaimed Property that is waiting to be claimed by Louisiana residents and businesses.

It’s recommended that individuals attending Saturday’s event bring a valid photo ID and Social Security Card to speed up the processing of claims.
