According to DiNapoli, "Those accounts are maintained in perpetuity, so they go back as far as the 1940s. It’s probable that some of those accounts may never be claimed but if someone can prove a connection to an account that goes back decades, we will return that money to you."

To find out of you or a family member has one of the 30 million unclaimed accounts, you can search at the state comptroller’s website. You can also call their toll free number: 1-800-221-9311.
