Unclaimed Escheat Money
Pennsylvania law requires that money received by the Department of Court Records, Criminal Division that is not returned or claimed be escheated or turned over to the Pennsylvania Treasury Department after five (5) years. Individuals or businesses can contact the Pennsylvania Treasury’s Bureau of Unclaimed Property at 1-800-379-3999 or search the database of unclaimed property on-line at the Pennsylvania Treasury Department.
The Department of Court Records, Criminal Division attempts to identify and locate all monies owed to defendants or any third-parties that posted a bail bond and have not claimed the refunds and victims of crimes owed compensation by defendants. Unfortunately, we are not always able to identify or locate individuals or businesses that are owed money.
