I was just talking to a friend this week who found her mom's name on this list, and was able to reclaim some money. With the holidays coming, extra money would certainly be welcome.

The New York State Comptroller's Office has an online database where you can search to see if you have any unclaimed funds from the state. I didn't, but I found a few friends who did. It can't hurt to check -- you can search by name and address.

 

Check to see if you're on the list here.
