Free Money Possible from your State Comptroller? Yes!
Some years ago I visited the Unclaimed Funds website in the State of New York and to my surprise I had money waiting for me to claim. Within 1 month I received my money by simply filling out an on-line form and waiting for my check.
Every year there are billions of dollars waiting for people to claim who know nothing about what belongs to them. I have also helped other family members and friends to claim their piece of the pie. I hope through this hub others can cash in and claim what belongs to them!
NY STATE FACTS
The total number of unclaimed funds is currently 13 Billion dollars residing in 31 million accounts. Monies distributed so far has been a total number of $771 million. As of 4/13-3/14 a record $422 million has been paid to claimants with 800,000 accounts processed. Sources for the funds come from a number of places such as Banks, Corporations, Insurance companies, brokers and State Court funds. For NY State 52% of claims are an average of $100.
The largest personal NY account paid 4 million in 2008 while 1.7 million for a NY personal account still remains unclaimed. Depending on the State anyone can search for unclaimed funds just by Googeling unclaimed funds for the State of one’s choosing. Search the database from the Comptrollers site because there are many on-line companies who charge for this service when it can be done for free.
The website search will ask for name and city and when clicking on the button reveal whether or not one has any unclaimed money owed to them. If so there is more information that must be filled out to ensure that the correct person is the claimant by filling out an on-line form provided by the State or the option of mailing in a claim form which must be notarized before sending. The United States Federal Government also has a website for searching unclaimed tax refunds, VA benefits, US Savings Bonds, FDIC Insurance claims and more. To search for these simply go to the Federal page at
