A recent upgrade to the Michigan Dept. of Human Services website allows custodial parents/caregivers
to search online for the money they are due.
The money was collected over the past several years by 83 Friend of the Court offices around the state, but caseworkers could not locate most of the 34,409 people owed money. Some of the unclaimed money also belongs to people who did not cash the checks they were sent. Often the person has moved without notifying the state of a change of address.
and click on the link for Child Support-Unclaimed Funds. You'll be asked for the last four digits of
your Social Security number. That will allow you to see if there is money waiting for you.
There are also links to a change of address form, to find phone numbers for local Friend of the Court offices and to the unclaimed property site of the State Dept. of Treasury.
