|According to the New York State Comptroller, there is a total of $18.4 billion in lost money in the state, and every day New York returns $1.5 million of that to those who file claims. Could some of it belong to you? Finding out, and filing a claim, is quite easy and straightforward (although know that we are always here to help you).|
Where is this money coming from? Banks, corporations, insurance companies and courts are among many organizations required to report dormant accounts to the State Comptroller. While these organizations must try to contact you, they aren’t always successful in which case the funds are turned over to the Office of the State Comptroller. Unclaimed funds might include things like bank accounts, dividends, security deposits, insurance benefits, estate proceeds, etc.
How do I check if I have any unclaimed funds? Easy.
Collecting unclaimed funds is generally an easy process, but we are available to help if you have trouble or if you have a more complex situation, such as collecting unclaimed funds for someone who is deceased which may require a probate proceeding. We can help you if you need assistance. Feel free to reach out to us via phone or email with any questions!
