This is a term frequently used to describe checks made payable to the University of Michigan from a variety of sources that have been turned in (escheated to) the State of Michigan because they have not been cashed.
The State of Michigan attempts to identify the recipient by posting the payees name on their website (http://www.michigan.gov/treasury) and periodically advertising in local papers.
The Treasurer’s Office routinely reviews this website for a University of Michigan affiliation as payee and submits a request to the state to issue a check to the university. This is a lengthy process and the listing will remain on the website until this check is issued.
Once a check is received from the state, it is delivered to Financial Operations – Banking Services to be credited to the correct university department. The information available with the check is very limited, and we encourage departments to assist with correctly identifying their checks.
University departments should not contact or attempt to submit a claim directly to the Michigan Department of Treasury. Any inquiries regarding unclaimed property should be submitted to the Treasurer’s Office, Mike Gronowski, (734) 615-6128 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
