Find unclaimed court money

Use this service to find an 'Unclaimed Court Money' account from a civil court in England and Wales.

An Unclaimed Court Money account could contain money paid to you or awarded by a court, for example to settle a court case. It could also contain money paid or awarded to someone whose estate you're entitled to claim.

If you find money you think you could be entitled to, find out more about how to find and claim money in an unclaimed court account.

You must claim money from an account before its last claim date. If you’re claiming up to 12 months before this date, you must also tell the Court Funds Office as soon as you make your claim to the court.

Warning From 1 June 2024, you will not be able to claim money from an account that has been unclaimed for 30 years or more.

If you want to claim money from an account with a last claim date before or on 1 June 2024, you need to make your claim to the court by 31 May 2024 and tell the Court Funds Office you have made a claim.
