    Payroll company witholding money from uncashed payroll check
    I have a payroll check that is about four years old and the payroll company says that they are in no way obligated to reissue me a check, and that the escheat laws only apply to government office jobs but that is not true. Who would I contact to help me on this problem?

    Did you work for the payroll company?

    Usually what happens when a company is using a payroll service - the check may be paid through their company (the payroll service) but when a check is not cashed the funds are returned to your firm to either pay the employee or escheat the funds to the state.

    Did you contact your firm for payment?

    If a check is not cashed for a period (depending on state law-- 1 to 3 years) the funds would be escheated to the state. All employers are reqired to submit funds to the state for unclaimed wages.
