Unclaimed Funds

What Are Unclaimed Funds?

Unclaimed funds are funds held by the court for an owner who has either failed to claim the funds, failed to negotiate a payment of the funds, or cannot be located. A claim for unclaimed deposit or registry funds never expires, so the owner, successor, or any other petitioner who proves a right to the funds may claim the funds at any time.
