This holiday season, many Iowans will buy and give gift cards. State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald wants Iowa consumers to make sure they take full advantage of their gift cards. "Year in and year out, gift cards are continually the most requested presents during the holiday season," said Fitzgerald. "Each year, gift cards go unused because the cards are lost or forgotten.

During the annual Thanksgiving Day festivities, State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald knows his office has a bounty of its own and the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt could provide one more reason to give thanks. "I encourage everyone to visit GreatIowaTreasureHunt.gov to look for their lost treasure," said Fitzgerald. "Those who take the time to search the list may find they have one more thing to be thankful for. Anyone may find money they never knew they were owed."

State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald reminds Iowans to explore IAble accounts as a way for people living with disabilities to save for disability-related expenses and achieve a better life experience. Signed into Iowa law in 2015, IAble allows families the opportunity to plan for the future financial well-being of a loved one with a disability on a tax-deferred basis, without the individual losing eligibility for certain assistance programs, such as SSI or Medicaid.

State Treasurer Fitzgerald encourages Iowans to join the celebration with over $20,000 in giveaways
