Check for your unclaimed funds in New York

Friday, July 26, 2013

Some of us find it hard to imagine, but there's unclaimed money out there.

The New York State Comptroller wants to hand out $12.5 billion from more than 30 million old accounts.

Comptroller Thomas di Napoli handed out lottery-size checks on City Island Friday, even though the amounts were not exactly jackpot-size.

Most people only forget $50 to $100 in old checking or savings accounts.

But one abandoned account does have over $1.7 million in it.

To find out if there is money out there for you, check the comptroller's website: http://osc.state.ny.us/
