Unclaimed Funds Info

Unclaimed funds are monies deposited with the Court by a bankruptcy case trustee pursuant to 11 U.S.C. section 347. Most unclaimed funds arise in bankruptcy cases when the checks mailed by the trustee to the creditors are not cashed. Under the Bankruptcy Code, the trustee must stop payment on any check that remains unpaid 90 days after final distribution in the case. The unclaimed funds are turned over to the court to hold for the benefit of the creditor. Applications for release of unclaimed funds must comply with 28 U.S.C. section 2042.

 

Disclaimer: Please note the posted list is limited to unclaimed dividends receipted by this Court within the last five years in cases in which a Notice of Unclaimed Dividends was filed and the amount is in excess of $25. Unclaimed dividends in all other cases must be researched on a case by case basis by the applicant.
