§ 892-2-1-.09. Responsibilities Of Claimant
(1) A Claimant shall be responsible for providing all requested documentation to establish legal entitlement to the Unclaimed Property. The burden shall be upon the Claimant to fully satisfy claim requirements.
(2) Claimant must respond to a request for additional information within 90 days of notification. If additional information is not provided, claim is deemed denied because of insufficient evidence supporting ownership of the property. In such cases, the date of denial shall be 90 days following the date of notification that additional information is required.
(3) If a claim is denied by the Treasurer's Office, or the claim has not been acted upon within 120 days after its filing, the Claimant may bring an action in the Circuit Court of Montgomery County, Alabama within 90 days of the date of denial or within 120 days of filing the claim if no action has been taken by the Treasurer's Office.
(4) Claim documentation for denied claims will be retained for one year following the date of denial. A new claim or additional documentation proving entitlement to the property can be filed at any time after the original claim was denied.(Adopted by Alabama Administrative Monthly Volume XXXIII, Issue No. 04, January 30, 2015, eff.
