The FCRC and the Warrant Control Unit (WCU) handle reimbursements.
If a 2nd endorser calls about a check with a stop payment stamped on it and the FCRC does not have a signed Form 98, either:
Tell the 2nd endorser to contact the State Treasurer's Office (217/782-4174) to investigate the problem.
When the client admits cashing the check, the Department will reimburse the 2nd endorser.
To reimburse the 2nd endorser:
The Forensic Document Examiner checks the endorsement signature. If the examination finds the endorsement signature is a forgery, no reimbursement is approved.
If the examination finds the endorsement signature is genuine, reimbursement is approved. Start recovery if an overpayment has occurred.
