Senator Simcha Felder (Brooklyn) greeted residents from Flatbush and Midwood today as they visited his office in the hope of discovering “found money”. The Unclaimed Funds Event was co-sponsored by Senator Felder and the NYS Comptroller’s office.
“We’re happy to hold this event every year,” said the Senator. “There’s over $14 billion currently in unclaimed funds, and over $24 million was already returned by the State of New York this year. Our annual event is always worthwhile and results in a number of my constituents finding money that belongs to them. Today, we conducted more than 100 searches resulting in 20 claims.”
This Wednesday, February 10, Senator Felder will co-sponsor a similar event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at his Boro Park office at 4714 16th Ave., 2nd floor. Appointments are necessary. To reserve a spot, please call the Senator’s office at 718-253-2015.
