You Paid For It: Unclaimed Funds
Updated: Wednesday, June 18 2014, 11:12 PM EDT
We've given you the chance to find out if you're owed money through the Comptroller’s unclaimed funds website and CBS6 Answers Team phone banks have been jammed, but apparently many local governments aren’t as interested in finding out if they're owed money.
We found plenty of local governments that were on the list, and now the comptroller has done a much more extensive statewide search.
Here's what his office found
- Statewide, local governments are missing out on more than five million dollars worth of unclaimed funds. $5,023,246
- Here in the capital region, cities, towns, villages and counties have 241-thousand dollars coming to them. $241,709
- That includes Colonie, Coeymans, Watervliet, Cohoes. Guilderland, and Scotia, -just to name a few.
