Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- The state treasurer's office says electronic filing for unclaimed property has been a hit with West Virginians.

The agency said Wednesday it's received more than 1,200 electronic claims since its most recent unclaimed property bulletin was distributed Feb. 4.

And since the state started using electronic claims, approximately $440,000 has been returned to property holders.

The agency says electronic claims typically are processed much faster and claimants receive their property within a week instead of several weeks.
