Millions in unclaimed funds could be yours

Millions of dollars in unclaimed funds are sitting in the State Revenue Office, and some of it could be yours.

LINK: Search the State Revenue Office’s database to see if there’s any unclaimed funds belonging to you

Spokesperson for the State Revenue Office Darren Joyce told Justin Smith that amongst the funds were unclaimed lottery and betting winnings from Tattersalls, Intralot and TAB.

”We had one fellow walk into our office with a Tattlotto ticket in his hand,” Mr Joyce said.

”We ran it through the system and he…left with about $600,000.”

Mr Joyce said often the funds come to the SRO as its owners can’t be found, and recommended trying different variations of your name while searching the database.

"There's a number of different permutations you need to look at when you're searching to see if you've got some funds owing to you."

Mr Joyce said in the last twelve months of the $70 million that came through the SRO's door, only $22 million was claimed.
