New Yorkers and others can find out if they are owed some of the state’s $12.5 billion in unclaimed funds using the Comptroller’s Unclaimed Funds database via the Internet at:

However, these are not just unclaimed funds belonging to individuals and businesses. 

The Comptroller also has monies received pursuant to the Abandoned Property Law belonging to counties, cities, towns, villages, school districts and public employee organizations.

For example, the Comptroller currently lists funds belonging to the following entities:


COLUMBIA GAS TRANSMISSION CORP

UTICA FIRST INSURANCE CO


EXCHANGE INSURANCE CO

NEW YORK STATE ELECTRIC & GAS CORP

CITIBANK NA NATIONAL COMPLIANCE GRP

SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUBS INC

STATE OF CALIFORNIA



TD BANK NA

BANKERS TRUST CO

However, those searching for monies that may be due a particular jurisdiction will have to be inventive. For example, monies that could be claimed by the City of Rochester have been filed as belonging to:

STERLING COLLISION CENTERS

CCO MORTGAGE CORP HOLDER 014360

VERIZON WIRELESS


Again, the Comptroller’s Unclaimed Funds database is available via the Internet at:
