UNCLAIMED INHERITANCES AND FUNDS | (RC 2113.64 – 2113.68)

There are individuals, whose addresses or identities are unknown, who are the beneficiaries of an estate or otherwise are owners of funds that have been handled by proceedings undertaken in the Probate Court.

The fiduciary in the case deposited the distributive share or asset with the Treasurer of Delaware County, Ohio.  The County Treasurer is holds those funds as part of the County’s General Fund.  The County Auditor maintains a list of the owners.  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.  These funds are not part of the unclaimed funds maintained by the Ohio Department of Commerce, Unclaimed Funds Division.

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 process.  The cost deposit is $30.00 for funds of $100.00 or more.  For claims of amounts less than $100.00, the Court waives the deposit.

The County does not pay interest on the unclaimed funds.
