The Summit County Fiscal Office is searching for owners of over $2.1 million in county unclaimed funds.
The Fiscal Office will host an unclaimed funds booth at participating Acme Fresh Markets during the first two weeks of October. Staff will be on-hand to search for citizens' names in the unclaimed funds database and assist with filing a claim to recover monies owed to them.
Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise serves as trustee of unclaimed funds in Summit County. Unclaimed funds are monies accumulated and owed from transactions performed at county agencies. Examples of transactions include overpayments, fees and costs, lost heirs accounts, and sheriff sale proceeds.
County unclaimed fund amounts of $10 or more are listed in a searchable database online. Visit FiscalOffice.summitoh.net and click on the "Unclaimed Funds" link under the heading "Additional Services." Enter your last name or business name in the search box and wait for the results to appear. Do not press the return button after you enter your name.
Owners of unclaimed funds can file a claim with a form that can be downloaded from the website. Or they can visit Acme Fresh Market locations to submit their claim in one step. The notary requirement will be waived for amounts under $1,000.
