New York

With over $14 billion New York State holds more unclaimed money than any other state – by far. Their site is one of the nicest on the web and offers information regarding outreach events, asset protection, online searching, claim filing status and more. Last year NY collected over $800 million and returned close to $460 million to rightful property owners. They indicate 40% of their accounts are $50 dollars or less but note their holding a single account worth $1.  They have one single account that holds $1.7 million in unclaimed money
