How to Claim Monies that are Proposed for Escheatment by Sierra Superior Court

What is Escheatment?

Escheatment is the process of transferring ownership rights in property to a government agency when the property has no known owner, the owner cannot be found, or the owner has refused to accept the property. Government Code section 68084.1 provides superior courts the authority to escheat unclaimed monies under certain conditions.
