Unclaimed Funds in Bankruptcy

A dividend is a proportionate share of the bankruptee’s estate that is paid out by the LIT to the creditors that have confirmed claims against the bankrupt’s estate.  If for some reason, the creditor is not able to be reached when the funds are to be distributed amongst all the creditors, this uncollected funds will be considered unclaimed dividends.

In bankruptcy, when there are unclaimed dividends, your licensed insolvency trustee is required to forward these dividends that are unclaimed to the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy. This currency is then held in trust until the creditor comes forward to make a claim.

Christine Sylver was very helpful to my situation. No question asked, she went above and beyond just to give me the options that I need to solve my problems. She explained and made me understand my options. Thank you Christine! Everything was done in a week. Regards, to Richard Sklar for explaining everything further to me. 😊

I was blown away by how kind and empathetic Christine and David were. I came into the process expecting to feel embarrassed, but they were so helpful and unquestionably supportive, they made the whole experience a positive thing. On top of that, Christine found a solution for me that was better than I ever could have imagined. I highly recommend Christine, David, and colleagues to anyone.

I had the pleasure of working with Jackie and she made the experience very easy and was very honest which I appreciated as I was extremely nervous to go through with the process. Any questions or concerns I've had after our meetings were answered no problems and although it's been a few weeks I can honestly say I've never felt so stress-free. Very thankful for Jackie.

My mother told me about this firm because they helped resolve her situation nearly 25 years ago. I had the pleasure of working with Christine Sylver. I should’ve done this years ago but I am where I am and it is what it is. Extremely courteous, professional and understanding. I hope to never need their services again but they would be my first call! A+
