First a howling blizzard woke us,
Then the rains came down to soak us,
And now before the eye can focus -

CROCUS!

Nebraska State Treasurer’s Unclaimed Property


In 2017, the Unclaimed Property Division of the Treasurer’s Office returned more than $15.3 million to owners, the second largest amount returned in one year in the history of the program. In 2016, the Treasurer’s Office returned $16.3 million to owners, setting a record for the program. In 2017, a total of 16,748 claims were paid for an average of $914 a claim.

Other interesting facts from 2017 include the following:

• The largest claim paid was $341,364 to an Omaha estate.

• Seventeen claims paid in 2017 exceeded $100,000 each; 28 claims ranged between $50,000 and $99,999.

• The most voluminous claim paid totaled 35 pages and included 231 properties for a descendant of a Nemaha County pioneer family.

• Among the owners claiming property in 2017 was television personality Dick Cavett, who received $682 from his parents’ estate.

• Altogether, the Treasurer’s Office is holding more than $170 million in unclaimed funds for more than 350,000 owners.

• There is never a charge for searching or filing a claim with the Treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division.
Stenberg reminded owners that they may search for unclaimed property online at treasurer.nebraska.gov. In instances in which property is $500 or less, owners may file claims online through the Treasurer’s website. Common forms of unclaimed property are uncashed paychecks, refunds, rental deposits, utility deposits, stocks, dividends, insurance payments, savings bonds, matured CDs, and lost IRAs.

Ways to search for unclaimed property and file claims include the following:

• Check the Nebraska State Treasurer’s website at treasurer.nebraska.gov. Type a name in the search box on the home page or click on the Unclaimed Property tab at the top of the page.

• For an amount less than $500, an owner may file a claim online through the website, with required information.

• For an amount greater than $500, an owner may complete the claim form found on the website and in the tabloid and mail to the State Treasurer’s Office, Unclaimed Property Division, 809 P St., Lincoln, NE 68508-1390. The form must be notarized.

• Call the Unclaimed Property Division at 1-877-572-9688 toll free outside of Lincoln or 402-471-8497 in Lincoln. Calls are taken 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., CT, weekdays.

• Visit the Unclaimed Property office at 809 P Street in Lincoln or in the Treasurer’s Office in Suite 2005 of the State Capitol. Hours at both locations are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. An owner should bring a driver’s license and Social Security card.

• If filing on behalf of a deceased family member for an amount greater than $500, the owner must provide documentation to establish legal authority to file the claim including a will, death certificate, obituary notice, and personal representative documents.

MURRAY CLEAN-UP DAY
May 5th, 2018
Murray residents only.

During these last days of cold weather, get ready for spring cleaning and get rid of the things you no longer want or need.

To make the task much easier, separate your items first, then when you're ready to clean, all the unwanted items will be out of your way.

(Remember, Murray garage sales will be May 18-19. See details elsewhere in this Newsletter.)

If you choose to donate your items, make sure they're clean and/or in workable condition.

When the weather (finally) gets nice enough to work outside, do the same in the garage, storage shed and yard.

During Murray Clean-Up Day, you can get rid of larger items that won't fit in your trash can.

Keep watching here for more details of Clean-Up Day.

MUSICAL INSTRUMENT LENDING PROGRAM

The Great Plains Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association has a wonderful instrument lending program, so please share this information with folks that you know. Here is the information from Jim Wood:

"We are in full swing looking for kids ages 5 to 16 who want to learn to play a bluegrass/old time instrument! 
The instruments we are lending include guitar, fiddles of different sizes, banjo, and mandolin, and have recently been gifted with a fine Dobro, thanks to Doug Van Horn. 
These instruments may be borrowed for a year as long as the learner has a mentor from our music association. 
The mentor will be selected by the student and parent. 
This mentor will give the Instrument lending committee a report of progress every three months."

If you wish to get an application to this Lending program, please contact Jim Wood at 402-397-4673 or jkwood@unomaha.edu.

GED - Adult Education

Plattsmouth’s Adult Education Program, including Adult Education, GED, and English Language classes, have a spacious new home in the First Presbyterian Church CE Building at 701 Chicago Avenue, Plattsmouth. The CE Building is the smaller of the Church’s two buildings.

“We have two large and comfortable rooms for classes this school year. We feel very happy to have room to move around easily and keep learning materials where students can readily use them. We have additional student-use computers as well,” said Program Director Tallie VanWesten. “We are grateful for this excellent new space and the First Presbyterian Church’s welcome.”

Classes are held Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to noon and from 6:30 to 9 p.m. each week.  Orientation for the morning class will begin at 9:30 a.m. and continue until noon. Evening class orientation begins from 6:30 to 9 p.m. This is a good time to complete the required paperwork, set up your computer-study accounts, and share your learning goals. Teachers will be available to answer questions during orientation. New students and returning students should attend orientation. Get your school year off to an excellent start at orientation.

Morning and evening classes at the same times listed above.

For more information about Adult Education, polishing your math, language, science and social studies skills; GED classes and testing; and English language classes; call Program Director Tallie Van Westen at 402-296-3174 Ext. 2315.

Classes are free. Everyone is welcome. Start your adult education classes in our new location. Now is the time!
