Unclaimed County Warrants (Checks)

Welcome to the Placer County Auditor-Controller's website for uncashed County checks (legally referred to as County “warrants”). Provided is the inventory of all Placer County warrants (excluding those warrants that are considered private, such as welfare payments, child support, and employee payroll, which are exempt from disclosure under Welfare and Institutions Code 10850 and 11478.1 and Government Code 6254 (c) and (k)) that have been issued and mailed, but which remain uncashed six months after their issue date. In accordance with Government Code 29802 (a) - (c), uncashed County warrants are void and become stale after six months.

Claiming Uncashed Warrants

If after reviewing the Unclaimed County Warrant listing, you have determined that the County may have funds belonging to you or your business, please complete the appropriate forms referenced in the Procedures for Claiming Uncashed Warrants. Any questions you might have regarding these procedures, or about the website in general should be emailed to the Auditor.

The County of Placer has a duty to release funds only to the rightful payee. In this regard, we ask the payees to provide documentation to validate their claims to ensure that no one but the rightful payee can receive Unclaimed Monies. Payees may claim their monies directly from the County of Placer without any service charges or fees. Please follow the Procedures for Claiming Uncashed Warrants.

Claim Submission & Review

Please be sure to include all required information with your claim request. Failure to submit a claim including the required documentation may result in that claim being denied and returned to the sender. As a result, claimants are requested to provide as much information as possible in order to expedite our review process and to substantiate the claimant's right to the uncashed warrant. If, for any reason, you cannot provide the documentation as requested, please attach a letter explaining why you are entitled to the uncashed warrant and any special circumstances that may apply to your claim.

The completed claim(s) and required supplemental information should be mailed or delivered to:
