PA Treasury Lawsuit Seeking $10 Million in Unclaimed Funds from Delaware Moves to U.S. Supreme Court

Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania today agreed that the U.S. Supreme Court should assume original jurisdiction in the state’s efforts to recover more than $10 million in unclaimed property funds that were wrongly submitted to the state of Delaware over 10 years.

In February 2016, Treasury filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against Delaware and MoneyGram, Inc. The lawsuit argued that under federal and Pennsylvania law, when a money order issued by MoneyGram is not cashed after the requisite time period, any funds associated with the uncashed money order becomes unclaimed property and should be remitted to the state where the money order was purchased. Instead, MoneyGram has been submitting the unclaimed money to Delaware where it is incorporated.
