Unclaimed Property Reporting
Treasury is responsible for identifying, reporting, and remitting unclaimed property to the State of Florida Bureau of Unclaimed Property annually. This process requires coordination with several departments within the Controller's Office.
Checks are issued for various disbursement types (student refunds, financial aid, vendor remittances, payroll, and travel reimbursement). These checks become stale dated after 180 days; however, the bank may honor checks which have exceeded this timeframe.
Aging reports are created monthly. These reports identify outstanding checks (over 180 days) are updated on the N Drive by Treasury. The appropriate managers in the Controller’s Office are responsible for contacting the payees to determine status of the outstanding checks.
During the month of January, final notification letters are mailed from Treasury to payees of outstanding checks approaching 365 days. On April 30th the Unclaimed Property Report is mailed to the State which includes the University's payment for the required amount.
