The Unclaimed Moneys Account (20X6133) is one of 92 Treasury Managed Accounts. The account balances listed below have been identified by agency. The balances are to be reviewed and confirmed to Treasury on a quarterly basis.
The balance of account 20X6133 should represent only moneys which when claimed, are unequivocally refundable. The sole purpose of this account, as originally established, was to hold such moneys in trust for rightful owners (as received by Government agencies from sources outside the Government). Accordingly, items cleared from agency uninvested trust, revolving and deposit fund accounts for transfer to account 20X6133 must meet all four of the following criteria:
amount is $25.00 or more
a refund, upon claim, would be absolutely justified
there is no doubt as to legal ownership of the funds
a named individual, business, or other entity can be identified with the item.
Agencies are responsible for analyzing their uninvested trust, revolving and deposit fund accounts quarterly to determine whether they are holding unclaimed moneys that may be refunded to depositor. For record-keeping purposes agencies must maintain subsidiary ledgers in support of moneys being held for rightful owners in account 20X6133. Additionally, agencies are to maintain a file of paid disbursement voucher forms for supporting documents for payments made from this account.
On a quarterly basis, FMS will post the balance by agency for account 20X6133 to this Web site. FMS does not maintain subsidiary ledgers. It is the responsibility of the agency to maintain their subsidiary ledgers and supporting documentation to ensure the balance is accurate. Agencies have 30-days to respond back to Treasury regarding the accuracy of the amounts recorded by Treasury in the account 20X6133 via written notification or e-mail.
If Treasury still has not received correspondence from agencies 60-days after the web site posting, Treasury will assume the amounts recorded by them are correct.
Agencies that dispute Treasury's recorded amount must provide supporting documentation so that adjustments can be made.
Audits for this account are to be included in the internal audit program. For further information please refer to Volume I TFM 6-3000.
