Who holds the unclaimed cash?
Every US state has unclaimed property laws which declare cash, property, and other funds to be abandoned after a period of inactivity, usually 1 - 3 years. During the abandonment period, banks and landlords, companies, hospitals, brokerage firms, insurance companies, mutual funds etc try to return any property to the rightful owners. If unsuccessful, perhaps due to an address change or a death, then the property is turned over to the state's unclaimed property division, where it sits in a escheat account for up to 30 years.
In NY STATE, for your protection, banks, insurance companies, utilities, investment companies and many other businesses are required by State law to surrender inactive accounts to the State Controller.

Sen. Charles Shummer says New York residents are owed $1 billion in tax credits
Up to $2500 can be written off taxes for money spent on tuition.
Many people neglect to claim for the credit in their federal income tax returns.
Ever given a gift card - you may be surprised to know that many go unused and the cash value is returned to the retailers. New York State now considers gift cards
that are unused after 5 years to be 'Abandoned Property' and up for grabs by the state comptroller. Almost $10 million was claimed by the state of New York last year.
A recent NY Times
reports highlights that residents have to be pro-active in claiming unclaimed property. Often only a letter is sent out, often to an old address. New laws mean that US states have to hold onto lost money until it is claimed. However the state earns interest on any cash it is holding, which may act as a disincentive to make more than the minimal effort to track down owners.
INDIVIDUAL STATE DATABASES
Some states already run an unclaimed money service where you can search through their files. However these sites are almost useless as a company owing you money could have its head office in a different state.
Almost all of the government sponsored sites are missing approximately 90%
of lost money records. They don't make it easy to find lost money, and it would take you many hours to search all the government sites one by one.
There is no single government site that unites all of the seperate online and offline lost money databases. Unsurprisingly, US States make a lot of money on the interest on unclaimed money sitting in their escheat accounts every year.

. This search is probably the most comprehensive unclaimed money database on the Internet, with thousands of hours of work put into compiling up-to-date information for all of the USA

All the best and good luck. Remember, you can also search for money owed to friends and family. Most searchers will find money owing , if not to themselves, then at least for another family member or a friend. The average amount claimed last year was $900.
Last years also saw the biggest amount of unclaimed funds so far returned to the owners.
How long will it take to receive any funds?
If you are the rightful owner or claimee of property, you will receive an acknowledgement letter within a month after any claim is received.
Due to a huge increase in claims over the last year and the checking done to ensure all property is returned to the rightful owners, please allow 90 days or more for any claim to be verified. You may be asked for additional proof or ID after a review is complete. Please note that all claims involving estates and inheritance may take considerably longer.
