New York State has something similar for unclaimed money from bank accounts, refunds, etc. Basically under NY law if the company can't get ahold of you about your money they have to turn it over to NY who holds it in trust until it's claimed (don't know if there's a certain amount of time before they just keep it).

Anyway for the hell of it I searched myself earlier this year and ended up actually getting a couple hundred bucks. One from a class action suit against an insurance company that dicked over a lot of NY drivers, and one from a bank account that apparently the closed on me after a couple years of inactivity (I had forgotten the password on it, and then I guess just forgot about it.. one of those internet only banks I had deposited a small sum in).
