Step-by-step instructions

  1. The claimant must mail or deliver to the Clerk's office a single application for unclaimed funds listing cases and amounts (including a grand total amount). Supporting documentation must be included for each case - each document should be for a single case and should list the case number. The Application must be accompanied by the Miscellaneous Proceeding filing fee (listed as Filing any document not in a case on the Fee Schedule). 
  2. The Clerk's Office will scan the Application. Each supporting document is scanned as a separate document. (For example, 15 cases would result in 15 PDFs).
  3. The Clerk's Office opens a miscellaneous proceeding and dockets the Application for Unclaimed Funds on it.
  4. An Unclaimed Funds Supporting Documents event is docketed on the miscellaneous proceeding attaching each scanned supporting document separately. The document's description should include the case number.
  5. An order granting the application is entered on the miscellaneous proceeding, which automatically sends an e-mail to the Financial department.

The following docket entry appears on all affected cases:
