The Affidavit of Ownership and Indemnity Agreement must be signed by the claimant/owner of the funds and notarized by a notary public. The notary public must witness the signing of the affidavit.

We will mail the check to the address provided on the Affidavit of Ownership and Indemnity Agreement. The check will be made payable to the same person or entity the original check was payable to.
