The City of Signal Hill maintains a listing of all accounts payable checks and deposits that are at least one year old and have not been cashed. After three years, unclaimed items in excess of $15 must be published once a week, for two consecutive weeks, in a general circulation newspaper. If a claim is not made within the specified time period, the funds are transferred to the City’s General Fund or originating fund in accordance with California Government Code Sections 50050 - 50056. The link below lists outstanding checks and deposits of at least six months that have not yet been transferred to the City’s General Fund or originating Fund.
If you are the legal payee or a representative of the listed payee and would like to request a new check, please complete the Unclaimed Property Request Form.
Once the completed Unclaimed Property Request Form is received and approved by the Accounting Manager, a new check will be mailed within one month.
