The state has returned 10.1 million dollars in lost or forgotten property to a record 19,000 people under the Great Colorado Payback this year.
The program was established to hold property turned over to the state by financial institutions, insurance companies and other businesses until the rightful owners can claim them.
The unclaimed property includes items left to someone in a will or items left in safety deposit boxes.
Acting state Treasurer Mark Hillman says about 400 additional businesses turned over property this year worth 46-million dollars after the state began educating businesses on the program.
