Comptroller to maintain public record
Abandoned Property (ABP) CHAPTER 1, ARTICLE 14
§ 1401. Comptroller to maintain public record. The state comptroller
shall maintain a public record of all names and last known addresses of
the person or persons appearing to be entitled to abandoned property,
heretofore paid to the state or hereafter paid or delivered to the state
comptroller pursuant to this chapter. In addition, the state comptroller
shall maintain a searchable database on the state comptroller's website
in such form and manner as the state comptroller deems reasonable and
appropriate, subject to the requirements set forth in section fourteen
hundred two of this article. The state comptroller shall place a
disclaimer prominently on his or her website advising that this
searchable database does not contain complete information with respect
to abandoned property paid to the state or paid or delivered to the
state comptroller, and provide contact information prominently on the
website to enable interested parties to inquire whether they appear on
an abandoned property listing. Other identifying information set forth
in any report or record made or delivered to the state comptroller shall
be retained by him but shall be considered confidential and may be
disclosed only in the discretion of the state comptroller. The state
comptroller shall not reveal the amount of any abandoned property,
except to a person who has presented satisfactory proof of an interest
in or title to such property.
