Unclaimed funds are monies deposited into the court's registry fund
resulting from an owner or recipient who is entitled to the money, but
who has failed to claim ownership of it. Most unclaimed funds arise when
dividends (assets) are distributed by the trustee to creditors pursuant
to settlement of a bankruptcy case, but the property goes unclaimed or
the check is not negotiated.
Individual claimants desiring to recover funds previously submitted
into the court's registry fund may do so by filing a motion and a notice
of hearing, including proof of identity. All other claimants must be
represented by a lawyer who is a member in good standing of the North
Carolina State Bar.
