New York unclaimed money

The New York State Abandoned Property Law requires organizations to annually review their records and transfer accounts that have reached certain dormancy periods to the State Comptroller, who serves as custodian and protector of the funds until they can be returned to their rightful owners. To ensure compliance, every organization should review the law, which can be found in McKinney's Consolidated Laws of New York, Book 2 1/2, available on the internet at: (go to "Laws of New York," then "ABP Abandoned Property"). The State Comptroller has specific guidelines for reporting the New York unclaimed property so that all of the information can be consolidated into a single database. To assist organizations in the reporting process, the State Comptroller's Office of Unclaimed Funds provides an instructional handbook, issues annual reminders and updates, and conducts periodic meeting.
