- Unclaimed Checks
Are we holding your unclaimed money? Did you lose or forget to cash a check from us? Did you forget to tell us you changed your address?
Unclaimed checks are those that are at least one year old and have not been cashed by the recipient.
- Claims may be mailed to or filed in person at the Clerk and Comptroller's Division of Financial Services during regular business hours.
- Claimants must bring a government issued identification such as a driver license or state ID card.
- The unclaimed check claim form must be completed and notarized for mailed claims. Businesses must submit the claim form on their business letterhead and the taxpayer identification number must be listed on the form.
Please note: claims to the Clerk must be filed within certain time limits and these limits are governed by Florida Statutes. Some funds may be claimed after this time limit, but such claims will not be handled by the Clerk. Please see the applicable statute reference listed by each check type for further details, at Florida Statutes Online. These lists are updated quarterly:
