State Treasury, MDHS team up to return $1.7 million

The State Treasury and Mississippi Department of Human Services (MDHS) announced they have teamed up to return $1.7 million in unclaimed money to families with unpaid child support.

Treasurer David McRae explained this new policy puts Mississippi’s kids first.

“If you are behind making your child support payments, know the State Treasury will return any cash we find in your name to your kids first,” McRae said. “It’s the right thing to do. I applaud Senators Walter Michel and Nicole Boyd for championing this effort in the legislature and thank MDHS Director Bob Anderson for working with me to return $1.7 million. Because of this good work, I am hopeful this money can be put to good use by families this holiday season.”
