Missouri state treasurer announces his administration has returned its first $1 million dollars in unclaimed property to Missouri residents.

Since taking office nine days ago, Scott Fitzpatrick has become the fastest state treasurer in history to make such an accomplishment — the previous record set in 2017 of only 11 days. The two biggest claims were for accounts in St. Louis county of $225 thousand dollars and the other for $130 thousand.

Treasurer Fitzpatrick currently manages more than $1 billion dollars in unclaimed assets in more than 5 million owner accounts.
