If you find one or more accounts in your name - congratulations! You may be able to claim it online which means that you could receive a check within a few weeks. Some accounts, however, must be claimed by mail rather than online. That's because we need documentation from you proving that you're the rightful owner of the funds.
To submit your claim, it's important that you follow step-by-step instructions.
After you file a claim, you can check its progress here on the New York State Office of the State Comptroller's website.
