Public Notice

On January 2, 2020, the Court’s requirements and form for requesting the release of unclaimed funds will be revised as follows:

  • LBR 3011-1 will be amended, effective January 2, 2020, to change the form to be used for requesting the release of unclaimed funds and service requirements related to the filing of it.
  • As referenced in LBR 3011-1, the new national Application for Payment of Unclaimed Funds (Form 1340) is to be used for the filing of these requests.
  • The Court’s Local Bankruptcy Rule Form F 3011-1.MOTION.UNCLAIMED FUNDS will be retired and can no longer be used to request the release of unclaimed funds.

The new requirements and form resulted from an effort by the national Bankruptcy Rules Committee to develop a streamlined national approach for requesting the release of unclaimed funds.

Please visit the Unclaimed Funds Search webpage on the Court’s website for more information related to unclaimed funds, search for unclaimed funds, and access the new form and instructions for filing an Application for Payment of Unclaimed Funds.
