State Check Outreach
The 2023 outreach letters will be mailed to payees who have not cashed a State check issued to them in calendar year 2022. These letters notify payees that the proceeds of an uncashed check will be turned over to the OSC Office of Unclaimed Funds if action is not taken to negotiate the payment or seek a replacement check.
Letters will be mailed out to payees on July 12, 2023, with a requested return date of August 18, 2023. A second letter will be sent out for checks over $1,000 that remain outstanding during the Fall. To ensure that respondents do not receive a second letter, all cancellation requests for checks over $1,000 should be submitted prior to September 1, 2023. These dates are posted on the Agency Calendar.
