Treasurer Office

Collection of Unclaimed Property From the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania


The County of Delaware has an ongoing process to collect unclaimed property from the Pennsylvania State Treasury Department. These funds were never received by the County and were paid to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (escheated) to be held in trust for the payee, the County.

The County of Delaware regularly collects these funds, but there are routine unclaimed checks originating from various institutions, so the County must constantly submit claims.

This is a long, complicated process that can take months as it is determined which claims are associated with the County of Delaware.
