Pursuant to Wis.Stats. 59.66(2), the purpose of this state statute is to return money to its rightful owner.
Generally, county and municipal unclaimed property consists of uncashed checks that are older than 1 year. When these funds are reported as unclaimed, municipal treasurers track and report this to the County Treasurer for public notice posting of all unclaimed Funds in the paper and online.
Claimants have 6 months after the official posting to claim funds from their local municipal treasurer. Then, they have another 10 years to claim funds from the Dane County Treasurer.
