Do you have unclaimed funds available to you? If you are a business, have you reported unclaimed funds?
Many organizations are required by law to report dormant accounts to the State Comptroller. In addition, organizations are then required to notify you by mail and publish information in newspapers. Despite such efforts, funds still remain unclaimed and are then turned over to the Office of the State Comptroller.
Types of Unclaimed Funds Accounts Include:
• Bank Accounts – savings, checking and CDs
• Court Funds
• Estate Proceeds
• Insurance Benefits/Policies
• Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds
• Telephone/Utility/Security Deposits
It is important to be cautious of people who are pretending to be the government, who offer to send you any type of money in exchange for a fee, or any type of personal information whether it be via e-mail or through a link to a fraudulent Website.
