Unclaimed Checks

Unclaimed checks

Unclaimed checks are payments issued by the city, that are not cashed within six months after the date of issue. The treasurer of the City of Imperial Beach holds these payments, which are not the property of the city, for three years after the date of issue. After that time, pursuant to state of California government code section 50050, the city is required to publish a public notice listing these unclaimed amounts, which are three or more years past their issue date.

Web posting of unclaimed checks

The Web site listing of unclaimed checks will be updated annually in the month of July.
