(RC 2113.64 - 2113.68)

There are individuals, whose addresses or identities are unknown, who are the beneficiaries of estate or otherwise owners of funds handled in our Court. The case fiduciary deposited their respective distributive shares with the Treasurer of Delaware County, Ohio. The County Treasurer is now holding those funds as part of the County’s General Fund.  The County Auditor maintains a list identifying the beneficiaries.  The unknown heir/owner entitled to the funds, or that individual’s heirs if the individual is deceased, may apply to the Delaware County Probate Court for an order directing Delaware County to pay the unclaimed inheritance/account.

An Applicant for a specific fund will be required to provide government issued photo identification and such other supporting evidence of entitlement as the Court determines necessary. The Application for Unclaimed Inheritance form at the right must be completed and filed with the Court to initiate the claim proceedings. The cost deposit is $30.00 for funds of $100.00 or more. For claims to amounts less than $100.00, the Court waives the deposit. 

The County does not pay interest on the unclaimed funds.
