What are Unclaimed Funds?
Unclaimed funds – also called dividends — represent money collected for creditors by trustees during a bankruptcy that, because the creditor cannot be located, has not been distributed. By law, these funds must be turned over to the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy and held in trust until the rightful creditor (person or business owed the money) comes forward to make a claim.
To be eligible to receive a dividend in a bankruptcy or a proposal, you must file a Proof of Claim with the trustee. Your first point of contact is the trustee, who can find out if your Proof of Claim has been accepted and if dividends have been distributed to creditors.
