Unclaimed Funds Search

In some bankruptcy cases money is left over from the bankruptcy estate, which the Court holds as unclaimed funds on behalf of parties owed.  A variety of reasons may cause funds to be left with the Court, such as when the trustee is not provided the correct address to send a payment to a creditor, or when a dividend check from the bankruptcy estate is not cashed within 90 days.  

NOTE:  Although the Court makes every effort to display accurate data, this database is not the official court record.  Please review the docket entries related to the deposit of unclaimed monies for the particular creditor/case of interest, to ensure that a record contains funds purported in this search.

SEARCH:  Below are links to two unclaimed funds databases:  (1) the Rhode Island Bankruptcy Court's local unclaimed funds database (for funds on deposit with the Court), and (2) a national unclaimed funds database (if funds are located in another court, you will need to file your request in that court).   

For the local search, choose ONE of the following methods of searching:  (1)  search all Unclaimed Funds, or (2) specify case number, creditor and/or debtor name.
