[ARCHIVED] List of Unclaimed Funds Available—Claim before September 1st

Bartow, Fla. (July 20, 2020) – Stacy M. Butterfield, Polk County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller, announces that the annual list of unclaimed funds issued by the Clerk’s office is now available.

Each year the Clerk & Comptroller provides a list of people who have unclaimed checks issued by the office in the course of court-related activities.

“The saying goes that there is no such thing as ‘free money’, but for the individuals on our unclaimed funds list this may be the next best thing,” Clerk Butterfield said.

There are currently 92 unclaimed checks for $100 or more.

Anyone who has unclaimed funds must contact the Clerk & Comptroller before September 1st. Funds can be claimed by contacting Sherry Watkins at 863-534-4491.

According to Section 116.21, Florida Statutes, regarding unclaimed court-related property, if a claim is not made the funds will be forfeited. The unclaimed fund list was officially noticed in The Ledger on July 18, 2020.
