Frequently Asked Questions

When can I expect payment?

Generally, Finance and Accounting mails checks within five to ten business days after receiving the notice to disburse, court orders, requests for refunds, et cetera.

Where can I find out about unclaimed property?

Annually, the Clerk's Office escheats unclaimed funds to the State of Florida or to the City of Jacksonville. Funds escheated to the City are not recoverable. Funds escheated to the State can be claimed from the Comptroller of the State of Florida. For further information on unclaimed property escheated to the State, please visit the Florida Bureau of Unclaimed Property website.
