The New York State Comptroller’s Office of Thomas DiNapoli says the office still holds over 46 million accounts valued at $18.4 billion dollars.
“My office makes every effort to connect New Yorkers with their lost money,” DiNapoli said. “By joining and holding events across the state we can help individuals, companies, nonprofits and municipalities check for unclaimed funds and get their money back to them quickly and easily. To date, over $223 million has been returned this year, and we hope to help more New Yorkers in July.”
New Yorkers can check to see if they have any unclaimed funds for them by accessing the online database via the Comptroller’s Office. Unclaimed funds can come from utility deposits, trust funds, old bank accounts, uncashed checks, old investment accounts, insurance claims, stocks and other inactive accounts that have been dormant for several years.
