NY may have your money


The State of New York may have your money. 

According to the New York State Comptroller’s Office, there are 37 million unclaimed funds accounts valued at $15 billion. The money comes from old bank accounts, utility deposits, uncashed checks, insurance claims, stocks and other sources that have been dormant for a number of years.

Some accounts hold money that had been lost or forgotten since 1940.

Residents who cannot make it to the events can search for and claim their money by using the online claiming systemor by calling 1-800-221-9311.

A number of events across the state will also be held to help residents locate lost and forgotten money.
