Do We have Your Money? Nearly $200 Million Returned to New York State Residents This Year

A Million Dollars in Lost Money Returned Every Day

Staff from New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli’s office will attend community events around the state this month to help residents search for lost and forgotten money, also known as unclaimed funds. DiNapoli oversees 31 million unclaimed funds accounts until the money can be returned to its rightful owners.

“I encourage everyone to come out to the community events to search for money that may be waiting for you,” DiNapoli said. “We return more than a million dollars a day to residents across the state, but we want to do more. It’s your money, we want to give it back.”

Unclaimed funds is more than $13 billion in lost and forgotten money dating back to the 1940s. 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.

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