New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli has reported that New Yorkers have over 46 million unclaimed funds totaling around $17.5 billion dollars.
“So far this year, we have returned over $358 million in lost or forgotten money to New Yorkers,” Comptroller DiNapoli said. “Each month, my office hosts events to raise awareness about unclaimed funds. Everyone is invited to come out and search for funds that may be awaiting them. The process is simple. Search for yourself, or for family members, friends, neighbors, churches, synagogues, mosques, or any organization you care about and let them know that they may have money owed to them.”
For Cortland County residents, a total of 13,268 accounts have unclaimed funds totaling $4,883,351 dollars.
Those looking to see if they may have an unclaimed fund, the New York Comptroller’s office has an online database where residents can check if they are owed money.
