Reduce the hassle of payment disbursements

Managing the day-to-day function of government has lots of moving parts, especially when it comes to administration, accounting, and one-time disbursements. And two of the biggest headaches that can throw a wrench into any operation? Paper checks and unclaimed property.

Issuing checks for payment comes with a lengthy list of challenges, including:

  • Reconciling uncashed checks

  • Work release and parolee administration

  • Juror administration and payments

  • Restitution, bond, and child support payments

  • Unclaimed property and escheatment

  • Check fraud

  • The high cost of issuing paper checks

  • Cash handling security issues

  • Stop payment fees for lost/stolen checks

  • Operational inefficiency

Hear what our government clients have to say

CourtFunds is such a great product that we were so excited to finally have a jury trial so we could try out the product! It was such an easy process and experience for us. I plan on telling everyone how smoothly it went to set up and use. I can’t imagine why more counties are not set up with CourtFunds!”

— Cindy L. Joosten, Clerk of Circuit Court, Wood County, WI

We implemented CourtFunds in January of 2020, and we have had such a positive response from our jurors! Jurors love the fact that they receive their card the first day of service and the funds are loaded on Friday by 5:00 P.M. — no waiting on a check, which in our case, took up to two weeks or more, depending on where the Finance Department was on their check runs. CourtFunds has been a LIFESAVER for the process of getting our jurors paid and saving the taxpayers of Horry County money!

— Lara C. Robinson, Juror Coordinator, Hoory County, SC
