Abandoned Court Funds

Every April, any court funds not claimed after three years, are considered abandoned and are sent to the State of New York. Each September DOF posts a preliminary list of abandoned funds on this website, and then each January 31 the final list of abandoned funds is published in major newspapers and posted on this website.

If you would like to claim abandoned court funds after they have been sent to the State of New York, you must contact the New York State Comptroller's Office.
