Why does Anoka County have outstanding checks?
Every year, Anoka County writes thousands of checks to individuals and
businesses. A small number of these checks are never cashed by the
recipient and remain outstanding on the county's books. If you
believe you received a check from Anoka County that you never cashed, you can
file an affidavit with the county and ask that a new check be issued.
By law, Anoka County cannot keep the funds from outstanding checks but
holds unclaimed funds for five years. After five years, unclaimed
funds are turned over to the State of Minnesota. The State holds the
money until the rightful owner or heir is found. For more information,
