New York owes residents $ 17,5 billion of unclaimed money: how to get them

Need money? Who doesn't need them!? Perhaps the cash is already waiting for you and you just need to claim it. The New York State Comptroller's office currently holds $17,5 billion in "lost money" from the state's residents. If there is your money among them, then to receive them you just need to send a request, writes NBC New York.

Basically, checks sent to the wrong address that were never cashed fall into the “lost money” category. Usually these are small amounts of 50-100 dollars, but anything can happen. New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said his office had a check for $5 million that was not claimed and was waiting for its owner.

You can check if your money is there here. All you need to do is enter your last name and a few more details if last name gives too many results. Also try misspelling your name (if it is complicated and often raises questions) - the clerk could enter the name incorrectly and then your money is registered to a non-existent person.

It is also worth checking the names of your relatives, especially those who have passed away. The accounts date back to the 1940s and officials say you may be eligible for these funds if you are the owner's heir.

As of August 2022, the Comptroller's Office had over $4,3 billion in unclaimed cash owed to people living in New York City, with Manhattan residents over $2,2 billion owed and Brooklyn and Queens residents almost 1 billion dollars.

This year alone, the comptroller's office returned nearly $290 million to their rightful owners.
