Unclaimed Funds

The New York State Comptroller's office is overseeing $12 billion dollars worth of unclaimed funds. Banks, insurance companies, and other institutions are required turn over the contents of inactive or abandoned accounts. More than 14 million New Yorkers have money waiting to be claimed.

The Comptroller's Office has an online database to check to see if you are owed money as low as $20, dating back to 1985. Our searchable database will show if you are owed as little as $3 since 1985. A name may show up here but not at the Comptroller's website.

Due to privacy concerns, the dollar amounts associated with each account are not included. A search will return the first 100 records found. Narrow your search with additional terms to impove the results.

To file a claim for one of these accounts, visit the Comptroller's website. A person can also make a claim through the mail: The New York State Comptroller's Office of Unclaimed Funds, 110 State Street, Albany, NY 12236. For accounts prior to 1985 or for amounts under $20, people can call the comptroller's office to see if any money is due to them: 1-800-221-9311
