    2013 Edition Of "Does New York State Have YOUR Money?"

    The State of New York has $12 BILLION in unclaimed money. Likely some of it belongs to you or someone that you know.

    Here's the link to do a search:

    https://ouf.osc.state.ny.us/ouf/

    Pass the link to friends/family/neighbors/co-workers, etc. There's thousands of people in the database. I honestly question the effort that NYS puts into finding the people who have money.

    Well, what I find most interesting is that I have found several people in the money database that I know and I've notified them. They have made no effort to collect their own money. So, NYS just keeps it.

    I just found something in the name of my deceased grandmother, who died in 1981. My mom (who is still living) was her only child. So I printed out the forms for a next of kin, which require a lot of research and effort, death certificates, names and dates of death of spouses, siblings, children and grandchildren, etc.... And you have to do all of this before you find out if it's a fifty cents or a thousand dollars that they are holding. And the State will only pay you five years of interest, no matter how long it's been sitting there, which probably is why they aren't a little more aggressive in tracking people down (so they can earn the interest).
