Unclaimed Money

Unclaimed money consists of Nevada County warrants that have been issued and mailed, but which remain un-cashed six months after their issue date. Warrants for welfare payments, child support, and employee payroll have been excluded from the list for privacy reasons. County warrants that are lost or stale dated can be reissued up to three years from the original issue date.

File a Claim

If you have determined that the County may have funds belonging to you or your business, you can file a claim with the County for the funds.


The County of Nevada has a duty to release funds only to the rightful payee. In this regard, we ask payees to provide documentation to validate their claims to ensure that no one but the rightful payee can receive unclaimed monies. Payees may claim their monies directly from the County of Nevada without any service charges or fees. Follow procedures for filing a claim :
