Abandoned Property Location Service Providers
The State Comptroller, whose longstanding view is that the rightful owners should claim their abandoned funds without charge, strongly encourages everyone to contact the Office of Unclaimed Funds directly to determine if we are holding funds that rightfully belong to them. Our Office provides this information for free through the Internet, our Communication Center, mail inquiry and public outreach. There is no charge for processing claims or returning abandoned funds.
If you are interested in becoming a provider of “Abandoned Property Location Services” in New York State, or if you have been contacted by someone who claims they can help you obtain your funds held by this Office, please read the following requirements and procedures.
