As I read someone else's post about uncliamed Tax returns from 2007 from the Federal Gov., it reminded me of the unclaimed funds in NY state too.
For your protection, banks, insurance companies, utilities, investment companies and many other businesses are required by State law to surrender inactive accounts to the State. These accounts are known as “lost,” “abandoned,” or “unclaimed” funds.
The Office of the State Comptroller serves as custodian of this money. If you can prove you are entitled to the money, we will gladly return it to you, at any time, without charge. Until the money is claimed, it is used by the State’s General Funds, serving the citizens and taxpayers of the State of New York
I wrote about this in one of my newsletter's and a clients Mom found $9,000 from her deceased husband that she didn't know about! Happy payday for her right?
Maybe you or your family member has some unclaimed funds too! One click and maybe you'll find some unclaimed funds too! Give it a try!
