Chances are you have money that is owed to you by New York State.  It may seem hard to believe, but some people actually lose track of their money for one reason or another.

Most states require that businesses, such as banks, insurance companies, utility companies, and investment companies, surrender inactive accounts to the state--which are labeled as "unclaimed funds".

Recently, I went to the New York State Comptroller site, clicked unclaimed funds, and proceded to search the data base for particular names. I found that my sister, brother, and several other acquaintances were listed.  I immediately notified them, and they started the claim process, which is quite easy. 

All one has to do is go the the Comptroller's site, fill out an application, and file a claim on line, or mail in the form.

The Best Yet - One of these individuals is giving me a 50 %  finders fee!  So residents of Nyack, Piermont, Valley Cottage, West Nyack, Congers, New City, Nanuet, Ramapo and other towns, should consider a search on this site.
