Unclaimed cash could well be yours

LATROBE City residents are among those entitled to money currently held in the State Revenue Office (SRO).

The state government are calling on Victorians to come forward and check if they are entitled to unclaimed cash.

Currently there are more than 740,000 entitlements waiting to be claimed across the
state, totalling $111 million.

People can start the process with a simple online search.

“I encourage all Victorians, businesses and community groups to visit the SRO and search
for any amount recorded under their name,” assistant treasurer Danny Pearson said.

“All you need are a few personal details and if we’re holding unclaimed money in your name, you’ll know within seconds. If you find an unexpected windfall, just follow the prompts to start the recovery process.”

The City of Melbourne has the highest amount of unclaimed money, sitting at $15,266,021 of unclaimed cash.

Latrobe has the third largest amount of unclaimed cash in regional Victoria, behind Greater Geelong and Greater Bendigo.

The overall value of unclaimed money in Latrobe is $1,194,185, with a total of 10,371 entitlements.

The largest single amount of unclaimed cash in the local government area is $12,599 – which belongs to a resident of Glengarry.
