Warrant Forgery Claims

In the event an intended recipient of a State warrant alleges that he/she did not endorse a warrant that has been presented to the State Treasurer for payment, the intended recipient provides the issuing state agency an affidavit of forged endorsement before the issuing agency replaces the warrant. The Warrant Division processes forgery claims by attempting to collect reimbursement from the "bank of first deposit" through the financial system.
