Military items waiting to be claimed at KY State Treasury

To search for unclaimed property, visit

By Lorran Hart Ferguson

Frankfort, KY - The KY State Treasury Unclaimed Property Division has several military items waiting to be claimed.

The Kentucky State Treasury has many interesting military items waiting to be claimed including purple hearts and other military medals, discharge papers, and more. Military items held at the Treasury often come from lockboxes that have been abandoned or whose owners have been unable to be reached by the institutions holding them.

"Everyday, especially Veterans Day, I am grateful for our nation's veterans," Treasurer Ball said in a statement. "Recognizing our veterans is very important to me. My grandfather served in World War II and I am thankful for his service and the service of so many others."

"We have many military items at the Treasury from various wars in our nation's history," Treasurer Ball said. "We would love to return these items to the veterans they belong to or their families."

In her first two years in office, Treasurer Ball has returned more unclaimed property than any state treasurer in a two-year period in KY history. To date, she has returned over $67 Million to Kentuckians.
