Senator Phil Boyle is bringing his office directly to constituents with his One-on-One with your Senator Program. Over the next several months he will be reaching out to communities across his district.
As part of the program, local residents who need assistance with government services, have questions about government programs, or would like to express concerns about a particular issue can share them with Senator Boyle in a one-on-one setting.
Additionally, staff will be available to offer assistance to anyone who is interested in researching the State Comptroller’s data base for unclaimed funds.
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.
