ORLANDO – You may not be aware, but the Orange County Clerk’s Office may have some unclaimed money for you. Look at our unclaimed checks list at www.myorangeclerk.com. If you see your name on the list, you have until Sept. 1, 2023 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 9,121 checks includes uncashed vendor payments, refunds, restitution, and cash bonds from as low as one cent up to more than $14,000. Whether you are an individual, business, or an organization, make sure to view the unclaimed checks list.
“Our customers deserve to receive the money that is rightly 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.”
The Clerk’s Office reminds customers who have restitution owed to them on a case in Orange County to make sure they keep our office updated on any address changes to ensure they receive any payments due to them.
Please keep in mind, if you do not collect your money by Sept. 1st, Section 116.21 of Florida Statutes says it will be forfeited and deposited into the Clerk’s Fine and Forfeiture Fund.
