Frequently Asked Questions
Questions about Royalty Checks
When are royalty checks mailed each month?
Why haven't I received my check?
Smaller revenue amounts that fail to meet the minimums above are accumulated month to month until they meet the minimum, at which time you will receive a check. Smaller revenue amounts that have accumulated to more than $10 per owner are paid at least once annually, in October.
Other reasons for not receiving a check include that your interest may have been placed in suspense due to a bad address, transfer of interest, or title dispute.
What do I do if my check is lost, stolen, or becomes outdated?
- Your name
- Your owner number
- Your taxpayer identification number
We will verify the status of your check with our Treasury Department and stop payment if the check is outstanding. The funds will be made available again through reissue to you under a new check number. If your check is over 90 days old, it will not be honored. Please void the check and return it with a written request to reissue to:
