The Unclaimed Property Division is the primary source for returning money to the citizens of Louisiana. Each year businesses turn over millions of dollars in unclaimed cash, stocks, bonds, securities and insurance proceeds to the State Treasurer’s Office. The money is called “Unclaimed Property,” and it becomes lost through the normal course of business. The Department of Treasury offers an easy and free resource to citizens to find and collect their unclaimed money.
Lela Folse, Director
The State Bond Commission receives applications from parishes, municipalities, special taxing districts, and other political subdivisions of the State, requesting authority to incur debt or levy taxes. These applications are reviewed for compliance with Constitutional and statutory requirements and feasibility, including the ability to repay any indebtedness incurred. If the applications are in order, they are placed on an agenda for consideration by the State Bond Commission at a regular or special meeting. Treasurer Schroder chairs and oversees the 14 member State Bond Commission committee, which meets monthly.
