Have an old uncashed check from SMUD buried in a drawer in your home?
The Sacramento Municipal Utility District on its webpage reminds customers who have uncashed SMUD checks dated September 30, 2014, or earlier that they have until 5 p.m. Dec. 22 to claim the money. SMUD provides a complete list of people who have unclaimed checks.
According to SMUD, to make a claim, call 916-732-7440 and give the claimant’s name, current address, and telephone number and the address for the time period Oct. 1, 2013, to Sept. 30, 2014.
Or mail a claim to: SMUD Unclaimed Monies, 6201 S Street, mail stop K109, Sacramento, CA 95817-1818.
Replacement checks will be issued only to the payee or, upon proof of death, to the payee’s beneficiary. The claimant’s name must be included on this list of unclaimed checks, or they do not have a valid claim, according to SMUD.
Checks listed and not claimed by Dec. 22 become SMUD property under California Code Section 50050-50057, the utility said.
For questions, leave a message at 916-732-7440.
