Unclaimed funds are funds held by the court for an owner or recipient entitled to a distribution from a bankruptcy case, but who has not claimed ownership. Most unclaimed funds are deposited with the court when claimants’ checks are returned to the case trustee as undeliverable.
Creditors who wish to recover funds previously submitted to the U.S. Treasury as unclaimed may do so by filing an application with supporting documentation and providing proof of identity.
A list of unclaimed funds is now availble online.
