Unclaimed Deposits and OverpaymentsThe
City of Villa Rica, like other governments, financial institutions,
etc., keeps a record of unclaimed money it is holding that belongs to
individuals. The City wants to return this money. Balances in closed
utility accounts, payment to vendors, Police Department bonds and
leftover deposits for reservation of Recreation facilities account for
most of the unclaimed money. Amounts range from a few dollars to $890.
How the Money is HeldWhen
a customer makes a water/sewer deposit, the City deposits the money and
when the account is closed the City writes a refund check for the
remainder of the deposit after the final bill deduction and the check is
mailed to the customer's last known address. If it returns undelivered,
the City adds the money to a suspense account and adds the customer
name, date, reason and amount to a list of unclaimed money. In addition,
checks that are outstanding for an extended amount of time are voided
and reissued and mailed to the original address. If the check remains
un-cashed the Finance Department tries to locate the customer/company to
whom the check was written and if unable to locate, the check is added
to the same suspense account. The list is updated as needed.
What Happens if it Remains UnclaimedState
law requires that government agencies, financial institutions,
insurance companies and other businesses turn over unclaimed money to
the state after a certain amount of time depending on the source. The
state has no time limit for filing claims. It holds unclaimed money in
trust for the rightful owners forever. Visit the Georgia's state web
