Check the status of your claim.
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.
The Office of Unclaimed Funds Online Claiming Program is a fast, easy and secure way to claim your lost money. Claims for many types of accounts can be submitted online if the information you provide matches our records.
If the account you are claiming is not eligible to be submitted online, complete the claim form online, print it and mail it in to us. If you do not find your name on the list, but think you may have unclaimed funds, you can contact us for a more thorough search.
