If you locate your name on this list and wish to claim the listed monies, complete the Unclaimed Funds Form linked above. Once completed, you may save and email the form, as an email attachment, to the Clerk of Court’s Finance Office at bradleyc@clayclerk.com OR save and print the completed form and mail to Clay County Clerk’s Office, Attn: C. Bradley, Finance Office, P.O. Box 698, Green Cove Springs, Florida, 32043.  Once the form/request is received and information confirmed, checks will be mailed.

The checks listed were mailed more than a year ago but never cashed – reasons vary. The intended recipient possibly moved away without leaving a forwarding address, or put the check away and forgot about it.  The list includes more than 250 uncashed jury service checks, witness checks, overpayments, refunds, cash bonds, and garnishment deposits, some worth hundreds – even thousands – of dollars. Clerk of Court Green encourages individuals, businesses and organizations to view the unclaimed checks list. “We work hard to make sure citizens receive the funds that are rightly theirs,” said Green. “Whether the amount is large or small, it’s important that we help finalize their court-related process by notifying recipients in this way.”

Please Note: If you do not collect, your money by this year’s deadline (9/30/20), Section 116.21 of Florida statutes allows funds to be forfeited and deposited into the Clerk’s Fine and Forfeiture Fund. Every effort has been made to contact the parties listed.

Please contact the Clay County Clerk’s Office by phone by 9/30/2020 at (904) 269-6317 with any questions. Thank you.
