If I have outstanding checks from 2011, can I still send due diligence letters?


Given the length of time that's elapsed, I'd strongly recommend that you communicate directly with the appropriate states to see how they want you to handle this. They normally require you to send due diligence letters within a certain timeframe, and escheat based on a window of time after that. Since the due diligence window has long since passed, each state will need to advise you on how to pursue handling these uncashed checks.
