SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - You may be owed part of the $1 million in unclaimed money sitting in city coffers, City of San Diego officials said Tuesday.

If you have done business with the city in the past three years, you may be due funds from $1 to $66,797.

Some of the funds are reimbursement checks sent by the city that were undeliverable based on the address on file. Any check uncashed after 6 months becomes unclaimed.

“We want to refund every single dollar of unclaimed money,” said Fanela Espiritu, Disbursements Manager with the Department of Finance. “A simple search is all it takes to verify if you were issued a check that has gone unclaimed. There is no charge to search the data or to file a claim.”

There are more than 2,100 accounts, city officials said.

The deadline to submit a claimed for unclaimed checks issued before Apr. 1, 2018 is Friday, June 21.
