Sen. Felder to Host Unclaimed Funds Event on Wednesday

BROOKLYN -

State Sen. Simcha Felder will be hosting unclaimed funds events Wednesday at his offices in Boro Park and Midwood.

A representative from the state comptroller’s office will be on hand to search the Office of Unclaimed Funds database, while you wait, and file the claim immediately, at no cost, if funds are found.

Appointments are available in Flatbush at 1412 Ave J from 10 a.m. until noon, and in Boro Park at 4623 16th Ave. from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. Please call 718-253-2015 for an appointment.

Banks, insurance companies, corporations and the courts are among many organizations required by law to report dormant accounts to the comptroller. New York currently has $15 billion in unclaimed fund accounts waiting to be reclaimed by rightful owners.

“At our last event we were happy to assist people in reclaiming almost $3,000 in funds,” Felder said. “This money belongs to hardworking New Yorkers and we want to help them get it back.”
