The Orange County Clerk’s Office may have money for you in the form of a check. Check out our unclaimed checks list at www.myorangeclerk.com. If you see your name on the list, you have until Sept. 1, 2016 to claim the money.
The checks listed are those that were mailed, but never cashed. Perhaps because the intended recipient moved away and did not leave a forwarding address, or put the check away and forgot about it.
The list of nearly 6,000 checks includes uncashed jury checks, vendor payments and cash bonds from as low as a penny to over $2,500. Whether you’re an individual, business, or an organization, make sure to view the unclaimed checks list.
“Our customers are a priority. We want them to receive the money that is theirs,” said Clerk of Courts Tiffany Moore Russell. “That is why every year we go above and beyond to spread the word about our unclaimed checks list.”
Please keep in mind, if you do not collect your money by Sept. 1st, Section 116.21 of Florida Statute says it will be forwarded to the Clerk’s Fine and Forfeiture Fund.
