Stop Payments

The Item Processing Section maintains a Stop Payment File, which is available to the public to check the status of stop payments. Please contact (916) 653-0060 between the hours of 8am through 4pm, Monday through Friday, to verify stop payments.

IMPORTANT: All information provided on stop payments is based on data provided by the State Controller’s Office (SCO) and is only for valid financial instruments for which a stop payment has been placed. The STO does not match the information provided against data on all warrants/checks issued by the State of California; therefore, the results cannot be considered verification of the issuance, authenticity or accuracy of the item being researched. Individuals should contact the SCO or the issuing agency/department to obtain such verification.
