Charleston County Treasurer Mary Tinkler and South Carolina State Treasurer Curtis Loftis, in collaboration with the Charleston County Public Libraries, will be hosting an unclaimed property event on Saturday, June 1. The event will help county residents search for and request any unclaimed property in their names, such as refunds due, outstanding checks, and benefit payments.
The event will be held at two separate library branch locations on June 1:
- 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at the Main Library Downtown
- 68 Calhoun Street in the City of Charleston
- 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Dorchester Road Regional Library
- 6325 Dorchester Road in the City of North Charleston
“We are very excited about this event and are looking forward to a great turnout in the hope that we can get as much money back to the residents of Charleston County as possible,” Said Treasurer Mary Tinkler. “While I was a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives, I worked closely with the State Treasurer’s Office to return unclaimed property and I want to continue that effort as County Treasurer. For those that are able to attend, please be sure to bring a form of ID in order to verify ownership and help get the property returned as soon as possible.”
Residents can visit the Charleston County Treasurer’s website to see if they, or any family members, might have unclaimed property.
