Due to a procedural change in the payment of funds from the US Treasury, we have updated our Local Form 3011-1, Application for Payment of Unclaimed Funds. The change is focused on funds locators that file an Application for a Claimant. Funds must now be paid to the Claimant in care of the Applicant and will be sent to the address of the applicant. Changes in our form are listed below.
Form number revision date:
Form 3011-1 (5/18)
Final paragraph on Page 2:
Applicant requests that the Court enter an Order directing payment of the unclaimed funds described above to the Applicant, or if the Applicant is not the Claimant, to the Claimant in care of the Applicant, in accordance with the documents submitted in support of the Application.
Paragraph 12 beginning on Page 10 and ending on Page 11:
All checks issued as a result of an Application submitted by an attorney or funds locator who has been retained by the Claimant or other party entitled to the funds shall be made payable to the Claimant in care of the Applicant. If the Application is signed by an individual on behalf of a business entity (e.g., corporation, partnership, etc.), then the check will be issued in the name of the business entity.
This new form should be used beginning May 17, 2018. Old forms will not be refused.
