Harper’s November Legislative Report: How PA Treasury Can Help You Save Money, Find Money
HARRISBURG – How can the Pennsylvania Treasury help you save money or find money? Find out on the November edition of Legislative Report with Rep. Kate Harper (R-Montgomery).

Harper’s guest on the program is Jack Stollsteimer, deputy treasurer for consumer programs, who outlines Treasury’s savings initiatives, including the PA ABLE program, which allows Pennsylvanians with qualified disabilities to save tax-free for disability-related expenses without jeopardizing government benefits, and the TAP 529 program, which allows families to save for their child’s college education.

The two also discuss Treasury’s Bureau of Unclaimed Property, which currently holds more than $3.4 billion in unclaimed property such as savings and checking accounts, uncashed checks, unclaimed insurance benefits and items abandoned in forgotten safe deposit boxes. Consumers can search Treasury’s online database at patreasury.com and recover any unclaimed property at no charge. The amounts can range from a few dollars to a few thousand dollars. Treasury has also recently embarked on an effort to return unclaimed military decorations to their rightful owners.

The 30-minute program is available for viewing at Comcast Cable On Demand and online at YouTube.com/RepHarper or via KateHarper.net.

The program is also provided to Brittany Pointe Estates, Foulkeways at Gwynedd, Normandy Farms Estates and Dock Woods for airing within their communities.
