Whenever the Division of Child Protection and Permanency shall have issued, or shall hereafter issue, any checks, drafts, or warrants to be paid from moneys received from the Federal Government, the State, or any county of this State for the cost of maintenance, and the checks, drafts, or warrants shall not be cashed for a period of one year from the date of issue, the following procedure shall be taken:
(a) The division shall give due notice to the bank on which the checks, drafts, or warrants were issued that no payment shall be made thereon.
(b) The division shall then from time to time deposit in a special fund moneys in an amount equal to that represented by the checks, drafts, or warrants, which moneys shall be held for the payments of the checks, drafts, or warrants. The special fund shall be in the custody and control of the division.
(c) The moneys so deposited shall be maintained in the special fund for a period of six years from the date of deposit, and, if still unclaimed after that time by anyone having a legal right thereto, shall be credited to the Federal Government, the State, or any county of this State in the same proportion as the moneys were received by the division in the original instance.
Whenever the division shall have credited any moneys to the Federal Government, the State, or any county of this State pursuant to the provisions of this section, it shall thereupon be free of all obligations as to those checks, drafts, or warrants for which such moneys have been held for payment.
