Www.claimit.ca.gov – Www.claimit.ca.gov is a redirection to http://www.sco.ca.gov/col/ucp/index.shtml where the California State Controller announced due to the economic crisis there will be no cash payment for unclaimed properties.
We regret to inform you that beginning February 1, 2009, cash payments for unclaimed property will be delayed for 30 days due to the State’s cash shortage crisis. Claims involving securities or safe deposit box contents, which have not yet been sold as required by law, will not be affected by this delay.
The Controller has been warning State leaders for months that the state’s cash flow was in jeopardy if the Governor and the Legislature fail to resolve the budget crisis quickly. If state leaders do not act by late February, the Controller has said he will be forced to postpone the payments for another 30 days. The Controller has taken this action with great reluctance, but he has no other option to preserve the state’s cash for education, debt service and other payments that are deemed by the State Constitution, federal law or court rulings as having first claim to available state general funds. We will continue to process all claims so that we can resume payments as soon as the Controller determines there is cash available. You may check the status of your claim on our website at: https://scoweb.sco.ca.gov/UCP/ClaimStatusSearch.aspx.
Again we regret the delay in your payments.
