Unclaimed Funds

The City of Irvine maintains a listing of all City-issued accounts payable checks that are at least one year old and have not been cashed. The City also maintains a listing of Public Safety unclaimed cash adjudicated by the courts. After three years, unclaimed items in excess of $15 must be published once a week, for two consecutive weeks, in a general circulation newspaper.

If a claim is not made within the specified time period, the funds are transferred to the City’s general fund in accordance with California Government Code Sections 50050-50056. Click on the links below to see items that are one (1) to three (3) years old and have not yet been transferred to the City’s general fund.

If you are the legal payee or a representative of the payee and would like to file a claim, please click this link to complete and submit the necessary form.

Once the form has been completed, received, reviewed, and approved by the Finance Administrator, a check will be mailed within three weeks.
