2005 Undeliverable Phase II Checks List Now Updated
An updated list of 2005 Undeliverable Phase II Checks that remain unclaimed has been made available today. The Governor’s Office of Agriculture Policy is seeing the results from the initial posting of the list a month ago.
In June 2005, Kentucky sent out over 164,000 checks to certified recipients of the Phase II Tobacco Settlement program. In the past month over 800 checks have been claimed and as of today, there remain approximately 2,400 checks that did not reach their intended recipients.
The reasons for the undeliverable checks include: no forwarding address left; expired forwarding address; the recipient is deceased; the recipient is not known; or the P.O. Box was closed.
In an effort to locate the rightful recipients of these checks, the Governor’s Office of Agriculture Policy have made available an updated comprehensive list of those who were issued a check, but had it returned for various reasons. You can find this list on the GOAP website at http://tobaccotrust.ky.gov/phase_ii/.
The list is sorted by the last name within the county in which the farm was registered according to USDA Farm Service Agency. If you should locate your name as a certified recipient, please contact our call center toll-free at 1-877-549-2537. The representative taking your call will verify some personal information, and then collect the correct mailing address information in order to mail you the check.
In addition to the name of the recipient, the list also contains the claimant ID number, farm number, and check number. Please have this information available when speaking to a call center representative. Please call quickly because these checks will expire on June 20, 2006.
