I I found my name on the unclaimed funds list, a former employer who didn’t tell the employees about their stock even after the company went of business! They recently
opened again after 15 years. I gave them a call when I found out about my unclaimed funds but to no avail they said I’m not owe a dime! When I called the NYS website they
said yes! Just fill out the form and send it to us. After I called my former employer NYS says there’s no money there! Where did it go? What did my former employer do? What can I do about this?
I found my grandmother on there and after she died 10+ years ago I was supposed to inherit stocks and some other things that her kids made disapear. You know, usual family drama.
I wonder if those were mine.
I found almost a dozen things... a few were in the hundreds.
Unfortunately, when I claimed them they were ALL intercepted by the state for taxes. ;(
I received $80. I still don't know from what. I am guessing some utility deposit many years ago...
It took a couple weeks but I received $283.33 from 2001 that Illinois was keeping for me. IIRC, it was a deposit for one one those old bar phones before they became small. Good service.
