Do You Have Unclaimed Property? – Come to Swift Community Center between 10 a.m. and noon and find out! Representatives from the Office of the R..I General Treasurer will help people search their database for unclaimed property. Each year, the Treasurer’s office recovers unclaimed cash and assets from businesses, banks, landlords, safe-deposit boxes and utility companies. The property is kept safe until it can be returned to its rightful owner. More than 300,000 Rhode Islanders have property waiting to be returned to them and many don’t even realize it until they search the Treasurer database and find their missing money. Gen. Treasurer Seth Magaziner is scheduled to stop by around 11:30 a.m. Questions? Call Swift at 401-886-8669, ext. 1.
