U.S. Postal Service Money Order Refunds
|The U.S. Postal Service holds a significant amount

Copies of paid domestic U.S. Postal money orders can be obtained for up to 2 years after the pay date. If a money order is lost or stolen prior to being cashed, it can be replaced. Records of owner names and addresses are available for purchasers of International Money Orders, which are valid for ninety days after issue.
Because the funds are held by an agency operating under the auspices of the U.S. Federal government, your name will not appear in a state unclaimed property database search. For information on replacement or refund of uncashed postal money orders complete the form below.
