ETA for Escheatment payments?

Hey there--

Last month I received two reports in the mail from Amazon's Escheatment department, noting two past payments from back a few years that were never claimed (not sure why, since I was set to direct deposit) -- after confirming that I did not receive the payments in those amounts, I marked the form as directed, indicating that I wanted the payments to be re-attempted. (It did not ask for any account details, so I know this was not a phishing scam.)

I then mailed the forms to the address provided.

Does anybody know how long it takes the department to go ahead and issue those payments? It's only around $300 or so, total, but I'd still like the money...

Sometimes the electrons hiccup.

My guess is that the earliest you'd get paid is the 29th of this month, with the regular end-of-month payments. Look on your Payments tab under Reports and see if anything is pending. (Though not all the pending payments have made it to the Payments tab yet.)

Yeah, I'd checked before I posted -- that's what prompted the post.

I also dug up an email on an unrelated thread: tax-escheatment@amazon.com

Sent them an email. Hopefully, I'll get some answers at some point.

I completed the Adobe form and submitted it by email mid-September asking for the balance due. It was from a gift card 10 years ago that I must have misplaced and/or never used. Not sure where I could check for it online; assumed they would mail a hard copy check unless they just credit tit to my purchase account (I'm not a vendor)
