With all that "unclaimed property" popping up, the state created a program to make sure residents are aware that they can claim their stuff. Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar says that since the program started, the comptroller's office has returned more than $3 billion in unclaimed property to its owners. During his time in office, Hegar claims to have returned more unclaimed property than any other comptroller:

"I am proud to have returned nearly $2 billion dollars to Texans since becoming Comptroller, and we are continually looking for new ways to return even more, I am proud to have given back more money than any other Texas Comptroller since the Unclaimed Property program was launched in 1962."
