See if You Are Owed Some of NY'S $9B in Unclaimed Funds at Events Statewide

New Yorkers can find out if they are owed some of the state’s $9 billion in unclaimed funds at events across the state in February, State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli announced today.

Representatives from DiNapoli’s office will be on site at the events listed below to help New Yorkers find out if they are owed money. New Yorkers and others may also check for unclaimed funds at www.osc.state.ny.us or by calling toll free at 1-800-221-9311.
