Unclaimed Registry Funds Are Now Listed On Court Website

Unclaimed funds are funds held by the court for a period of 5 years for an owner or recipient who is entitled to the money but who has failed to claim ownership, who cannot be located, or for whom payment has been returned from a last known address. After 5 years unclaimed funds are sent to the U.S. Treasury.

This Court is now maintaining the list of unclaimed registry funds on its website. Review our court’s Unclaimed Funds Ledger to determine whether you are the rightful owner of unclaimed funds. Cases that are sensitive or confidential in nature are not included in this public listing.
