Sangamon County Circuit Clerk Tony Libri says his office is sitting on checks totaling more than $165,000 that were returned by the U.S. Postal Service as undeliverable. About 1,300 people have unclaimed checks at the Clerk’s Office, averaging around $75.00 each.
Libri’s office has set up a list of those names on their website – sangamoncountycircuitclerk.org, and click on “Connect With Cash” to see a list of names the checks for child support and maintenance, bail bond refunds or restitution belong to.
The Clerk’s Office will hold the unclaimed checks for seven years, then turn them over to the State Treasurer.
