Unclaimed Funds Might Be Waiting For You!

New York State is holding over $11 billion in unclaimed funds, and some of it may be yours! A simple internet search is all it takes to see if there are unclaimed funds in your name.

Why does New York State have unclaimed funds?

Banks, insurance companies, utilities, investment companies and many other businesses are required by State law to turn over inactive accounts to the State. The Office of the State Comptroller holds these funds in trust, serving as a custodian of these funds until they can be claimed by their rightful owners.
