Unclaimed or Abandoned Property

The Department of Finance mails letters for unclaimed property (usually un-cashed checks) which have been dormant for over three years. The most recent letter is dated: August 15, 2020.

The unclaimed property originated from the department listed under "source" on the letter. Please complete and sign the claim form and return it along with the two forms of identification as noted on the form. Mail the claim form in the envelope provided within thirty days from the date on the letter.

If the thirty day limit has expired, there is no guarantee that the County can make the payment. The County will return any paperwork that cannot be processed because of the time limit to be sent to the State.

One piece of identification must be a government issued identification document with a picture. Acceptable forms of picture ID include: passport, consular ID from Guatemala and Mexico, driver's license, military identification, Maryland identification card.

The second piece of identification must bear the person's name and address. Acceptable forms of second identification include: voter registration card, utility bill, pay stub, bank statement, and vehicle registration

To receive another envelope online users may submit a request by clicking on the "Create Service Request" button below. Please complete all of the fields in the Contact Information section provide the requestor's address in the Service/Incident Address information section and provide a brief description of the request in the Brief Description field.

Typically Payroll and Treasury use a Rockville address, and the Controller's Office may use a Gaithersburg address as well.
