Unclaimed Funds

Unclaimed funds are funds held by the bankruptcy court for an owner or recipient who is entitled to the money, but who has failed to claim ownership of it. Unclaimed funds may arise out of a variety of circumstances. For example, delivery of a payment may not be possible because of faulty or incomplete address information for the recipient. In other instances, proceeds or uncashed dividend checks from bankruptcy cases may not have been claimed by the parties, agencies, next of kin, or other recipients entitled to them.  Unclaimed funds may only be payable to the designated payee for whom the funds are being held and cannot be paid to the debtor in the case unless the debtor is the named payee of the unclaimed funds.

A link to the court's list of unclaimed funds, searchable by name of the person to whom the money is owed, is provided below.  To claim the funds, the party entitled to the funds, or the party’s agent, may complete the attached Application to Withdraw Unclaimed Funds, or equivalent form.  Further instructions are provided with the attached Form.
