I received a check from the county and lost it. What should I do?
For lost or stolen checks, contact our office immediately at (925) 646-2191. We will verify our records regarding the status of the check and a Lost and Destroyed Warrant Certificate (Form M262) will be sent to you.

The form contains all the necessary check information and a statement claiming that you have received no benefit of value from the proceeds of the check. Upon receipt of the completed form, we will place a stop payment on the check and initiate the process of replacement.

If your check is reported as stolen, a stop payment is immediately placed.
