Missing, Stolen or Damaged Checks - State Plan
Lost or Stolen Checks
If you lose your check or if your check is stolen, you should notify our office immediately in writing. Be sure that your letter includes all known information concerning the check, your social security number and your signature.
Our office can not replace a stolen or missing temporary disability check. Only the Department of Treasury can replace a check. Once your letter is received, the Department of Treasury will be notified and that office will contact you directly regarding the results of their investigation.
- In the event that you do not receive your disability check through the mail in a timely manner, we suggest that you wait 14 days before you report the check missing.
- If you receive the original check after you have reported it missing or stolen, do not cash the check. Notify our office immediately at (609) 292-7060 and our representatives will advise you how to proceed.
If you are unable to cash your check because it was damaged, you should return the damaged check to our office so that it can be reissued. Again, be sure that your social security number appears on all correspondence sent to our office.
