Clay County Clerk’s Office May Have Unclaimed Checks for You

The Clay County Clerk’s Office may have money for you in the form of an unclaimed check. Like all Clerk of Court offices across the state, local Clerks review unclaimed and uncashed checks annually and send out a public notice once the funds have remained unclaimed for more than a year. The Clay County Clerk’s Office has nearly $18,500 in unclaimed funds.

View Clay County’s unclaimed funds list here:  2019 Unclaimed Funds List for Publication  This list will also be published in the legal ads section of your local weekly newspaper. Please allow for a timeframe of approximately ten (10) business days for your check to be processed and mailed from the time you contact our office.

If you see your name on the list, you have until September 3, 2019, to claim the money. The checks listed were mailed but never cashed and the reasons vary. The intended recipient possibly moved away without leaving a forwarding address, or put the check away and forgot about it. The list of more than 250 checks and funds on deposit includes uncashed jury service checks, witness checks, overpayments, refunds, cash bonds, and garnishment deposits from as low as $5.60 to more than $700.

Whether you are an individual, business, or an organization, make sure to view the unclaimed checks list. “We work to make sure our customers receive the funds that are rightly theirs,” said Clerk of Court Tara S. Green. “Whether the amount is large or small, it’s important that we help citizens finalize their court-related process by notifying the recipients in this way.”

Please Note: if you do not collect your money by this year’s deadline (9/3/19), Section 116.21 of Florida statutes allows funds to be forfeited and deposited into the Clerk’s Fine and Forfeiture Fund.

Call 904-269-6317 for more information on how to receive the funds for which names are listed. Please allow for a timeframe of approximately ten (10) business days for your check to be processed and mailed from the time you contact our office.
