Please allow 15 business days for your check to reach you before reporting a lost check. Please contact us at 877-587-9494 or email using the Land Owner Assistance Contact Form  and, if your check has not cleared our bank, we will attempt to reissue your payment.

[ + ] [ - ] How do I reclaim money that Warren has turned over to the state in my name?

Under the escheat laws for each respective state, Warren is allowed to hold unclaimed funds for a specific period of time, which varies depending on your last known state of residence. The funds are turned over to the state of the Owner’s last known address of record. If the address is unknown, then the funds are turned over to the state of incorporation of the reporting company. Warren's state of incorporation is Delaware. The reclamation process will be between the claimant and the state holding the money. If contacted by a specific State, follow the directions provided by that state. If contacted by someone other than the State, please be careful. Some 'finders' charge a fee or a percentage of the amount recovered. You can search for unclaimed property yourself. There are no fees and no time limit on reclaiming or filing a claim. The majority of states have unclaimed property web sites. You can search for your name and print claim forms from these sites. Begin your search by state name, then state government. For example, the California State Controller’s Office is the agency for the State of California. For some states, it is the Treasurer's office or Department of Revenue. Or, www.unclaimed.org/ maintains a national database of unclaimed property records of participating states; however, not all states participate in this database. Write to the state of residence or past residences and request a search be performed for you. All states have an unclaimed property department. For an accurate search, you should provide as much information as possible. Include your full name, social security number, and how you may be reached.

Remember, once you have reclaimed your funds, please contact us at 877-587-9494 or email using the Land Owner Assistance Contact Form if you believe that there is a possibility we may be holding additional funds in your name.

[ + ] [ - ] Can I set up direct deposit for my monthly royalty and/or rental check?

No. At this time Warren does not offer an electronic funds transfer (EFT) option for our revenue interest owners. Payments and payment detail will be sent by way of regular mail to your designated address.

[ + ] [ - ] When should I receive my check?

Warren generates and mails revenue checks on the last week of each month. If your account is in a pay status and has reached $100 (the minimum for check issuance) a check will be generated. If you have not received your check by the 15th of the following month, please contact us at 877-587-9494, email us directly, or contact us using the Land Owner Assistance Form.
