The Palmetto Payback tour of South Carolina Treasurer Curtis Loftis is coming to Horry and Georgetown counties Monday.
The Palmetto Payback Program may be holding unclaimed property which belongs to you. Millions of dollars are transferred to the Program annually by companies who cannot locate the owners. Examples of the type of property covered by the Program include bank accounts, stock certificates, checks, insurance policies and utility deposits. The Palmetto Payback Program does not include tangible property like land or vehicles.
“The property transferred to the Program for safekeeping is held indefinitely for the benefit of the rightful owners,” Loftis said. “If we are holding property for you, you always have the right to claim your property any time at no cost. Until claimed, the funds are used for the good of all South Carolina citizens.”
The tour will be at the World Life Christian Fellowship Church at 7840 Hwy. 701 in the Bucksport Community from noon until 2 p.m. Monday October 15th. It will then move to the Georgetown County Judicial Center at 401 Cleland St., Georgetown from 4p.m. to 6 p.m.
People just have to show up and give their name for an instant search to be conducted. According to state records, the state is currently holding 1.5 million accounts totaling $300 million in unclaimed money.
