“The Nebraska Treasurer’s Office has announced a new streamlined system for banks, businesses and other organizations to report unclaimed property.
The new in-house method was developed by the Information Technology Division of the State Treasurer’s Office and became available Oct. 3, just in time for unclaimed property holders to meet the Nov. 1 deadline for turning over property whose owners cannot be located to the Treasurer’s Office.
Organizations, known as holders, can now create profiles, load records and submit reports without leaving the Treasurer’s website at https://treasurer.nebraska.gov/up/holder-reporting/. Holders have the option to manually enter property and owner information or use an Excel template to upload records. There is no charge to use the Treasurer’s reporting service.
In the past, holders had to use a third-party software or web developer to create their report files and submit them to the Nebraska Unclaimed Property Division. One of those third-party providers is now charging for the service.”
