New York State May Owe You Money
New York state has $12.5 billion in unclaimed funds and some of that money could be yours.
State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says more than 30 million accounts are unclaimed in New York, some dating back to the 1940s.
DiNapoli says a large portion of unclaimed funds come from dormant bank accounts, uncashed checks, insurance accounts and stocks.
He says Oneida County has over $14 million in unclaimed funds and Herkimer County has $3 million.
New Yorkers can search for lost money by visting the Office of Unclaimed Funds’ website.
