Brooklyn, New York Unclaimed Property and Funds

What Is Unclaimed Property in Brooklyn, NY?

Unclaimed Property is money owed to people and companies in Brooklyn that gets turned over to New York when companies can't find people to pay it back. For example, if you move and you don't tell your utility company your new address, they don't know where to send your refund check. In this case they would turn the money over to New York as Unclaimed Property. New York would then hold it until you come and claim it. Some states take the money after a certain number of years, while some hold unclaimed funds indefinitely.
