SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The City of San Diego may owe you some of its unclaimed $1.2 million.

The funds come from checks that are returned if the addresses are invalid. Checks that remain uncashed after six months become unclaimed monies.

Amounts range from $1 to $30,000.

We want to refund every single dollar of unclaimed money,” said Cecilia San Pedro, Disbursements Manager for the Office of the City Comptroller. “A simple search is all it takes to verify if you have been issued a check that has gone unclaimed. There is no charge to search the data or to file a claim.”
