Unclaimed Funds

Unclaimed funds are monies held by the court for an owner who is entitled to the money, but who has failed to claim ownership of it. In bankruptcy cases, the trustee or the estate pays out money that has been collected from the debtor to pay creditors who have filed a claim in a case.   Sometimes the money paid out is returned as undeliverable because of a faulty or incorrect address or because the check was not cashed within 90 days.   The U.S. Courts, as custodians of these funds, have established policies and procedures for holding, safeguarding, and accounting for these funds.
