Cash Bail Refunds
Courts, correctional facilities, and jails collect Cash Bail. If you pay the Cash Bail then you are the Surety. The Surety gets a receipt as proof of payment when the Cash Bail is paid. Finance holds the Cash Bail funds until the court closes the case and issues a court order to refund the Cash Bail.
You do not have to do anything to receive a Cash Bail refund. We usually receive the Cash Bail refund court order request from the court about six (6) weeks after the case is closed. We then mail the Cash Bail refund to the Surety at the address on the Cash Bail receipt within two (2) weeks.
If you are the Surety, then you should wait to contact Finance about your Cash Bail refund until eight (8) weeks after the case ends.
If you contact Finance about your Cash Bail refund, please have your receipt ready to provide information.
