The Fund, in compliance with legal and fiduciary responsibility, will maintain check status records for up to 7 years.

The Fund reserves the right to not issue a replacement check after 7 years from date of issue, unless there is sufficient documentation to support the re-issuance of an original or replacement check. In the absence of such documentation, the Fund will take the position that a check has been cashed and will not be re-issued. This decision remains at the discretion of the Fund Administrator.

No checks are replaced in the month of December and January to prepare for tax reporting. Check reissues resume in February.

Notice Regarding Escheat Regulations

Please be advised that pursuant to the California Code of Civil Procedure, Section 1521 (“CCP § 1521”), the Film Musicians Secondary Markets Fund qualifies for the “safe harbor” exemption under subsection (b) created for labor unions, and their associated pension/residual/royalty funds that would otherwise apply to unclaimed property and monies.
