2A:37-8. Claims against escheated estate; filing, allowance and payment
Any person who has any claim or claims against the estate of any such intestate whose real estate has so escheated to the state, may give notice thereof, under oath, to the state treasurer. Thereupon the treasurer shall hold any moneys which may or shall come into his hands, derived from the sale of such real estate, for the period of 1 year. No claim shall be received by the treasurer which shall not be filed with him within the year aforesaid. When such claims shall be proven to the satisfaction of the treasurer and audited by the director of the division of budget and accounting, they shall be paid by the treasurer. If, however, such estate shall prove to be insolvent, the treasurer shall be empowered to pay the claims against such estate ratably.
