Unclaimed Money

California Government Code Sections 50050 et seq. provides that warrants/checks that remain unclaimed for three (3) years may be transferred (escheated) to the County general fund on order of the Board of Supervisors. At the end of the three-year period, those items in excess of $15 must be published as notification that the money will become the property of the County after a designated date if it is left unclaimed. Escheatment to the general fund occurs if a verified claim is not filed by the designated date forty-five days after the date of publication. After this date, money left unclaimed will become the property of the county and can no longer be claimed.
