SECTION 514
Reimbursement of brokers or dealers
Abandoned Property (ABP) CHAPTER 1, ARTICLE 5-A
§ 514. Reimbursement of brokers or dealers. 1. A broker or dealer
which has paid or delivered to the state comptroller abandoned property
pursuant to section five hundred twelve may elect to make payment to the
person entitled thereto. A broker or dealer making such payment may file
claim for reimbursement by the state comptroller. The state comptroller
upon satisfactory proof of such payment shall, after audit, reimburse
such broker or dealer. In no event, however, shall such reimbursement
exceed the amount to which the claimant is entitled pursuant to
subdivision two of section fourteen hundred three of this chapter.

2. A broker or dealer which has paid to the state comptroller
abandoned property relating to any of the years nineteen hundred
sixty-seven, nineteen hundred sixty-eight, nineteen hundred sixty-nine
or nineteen hundred seventy, determined pursuant to subdivision six of
section five hundred eleven, may elect thereafter to make payment to a
person entitled to receive (i) a stock or cash dividend received in this
state during any such year by such broker or dealer, or nominee of such
broker or dealer, as the holder of record of a security, or (ii) an
interest payment on a security received in this state during any such
year by such broker or dealer, or nominee of such broker or dealer. A
broker or dealer making any such payment may file claim for
reimbursement by the state comptroller. Subject to the provisions of
this subdivision, the state comptroller upon satisfactory proof that a
broker or dealer has made payment to the person entitled thereto shall,
after audit of such claim, reimburse such broker or dealer. In no event
shall the amount or amounts reimbursed by the state comptroller to a
broker or dealer relating to any of the years nineteen hundred
sixty-seven, nineteen hundred sixty-eight, nineteen hundred sixty-nine
or nineteen hundred seventy, plus amounts paid by the state comptroller
to any person claiming such abandoned property relating to any of such
years, exceed the amount paid by the broker or dealer to the state
comptroller pursuant to subdivision six of section five hundred eleven
relating to such year. In no event shall the amount paid by the state
comptroller to any person claiming a stock dividend received by a broker
or dealer, or nominee of such broker or dealer, in any of such years, or
to a broker or dealer in reimbursement of any such claim paid by such
broker or dealer, exceed the value of such stock dividend as most
recently reported by any generally recognized statistical service on the
thirty-first day of December of the year in which such stock was deemed
abandoned property.
