September 18, 2023   274

"Missing money" typically refers to unclaimed property or funds that may be owed to individuals but have not been claimed. States in the U.S., including New York, often have unclaimed property programs where residents can search to see if they are owed any money. These can include forgotten bank accounts, unclaimed wages, insurance policies, and more.

MissingMoney.com is a website that is officially endorsed by NAUPA (National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators) and participating states and provinces to help individuals locate their unclaimed property. For residents of New York, or those who have conducted business or lived in New York in the past, using this website can be a helpful way to determine if there are any unclaimed funds or property in their name.

If you believe you may have unclaimed money in New York:

  1. Visit MissingMoney.com: Go to the website and enter your name and the state (in this case, New York) into the search bar.
  2. Review the Results: If there are any matches, the website will provide you with details and the steps to claim your money or property.
  3. Claim Your Funds: If you identify funds that belong to you, follow the instructions to claim them. This typically involves providing some form of identification and proof of ownership.

In addition to MissingMoney.com, residents of New York can also check the official New York State unclaimed funds website for any potential matches. It's always a good idea to check regularly, as new unclaimed funds are added throughout the year.
