If the property is not claimed by the end of August, the money is then turned over to the comptroller of the state.

"This is money that was paid for claims or refunded premiums. If the money remains unclaimed, it will go to the state," said Christopher Booth, president and chief operating officer.

To claim a check prior to Aug. 31, do one of the following steps:

By e-mail, contact Customer Services or Provider Services. By phone, if you are currently a health plan member, call the phone number on your member identification card.

Rating achieved

PLATTSBURGH — Glens Falls National Bank & Trust Co. has been recognized as a 5-Star Superior bank by the nation's leading bank-rating and research firm, BAUERFINANCIAL Inc.

A 5-Star Superior rating indicates that Glens Falls National is one of the strongest banks in the nation. Among other factors, to earn this rating the bank must not only report impressive capital levels, but also a loan portfolio with negligible levels of delinquent loans. Glens Falls National has earned a 5-Star Superior bank rating for 20 quarters.

Karen L. Dorway, president of BAUERFINANCIAL, congratulated the team at Glens Falls National. "Glens Falls National Bank & Trust Co. is one of the U.S. banks that evoke an image of a brighter banking future for our communities," she said. "That's good news for all."

Glens Falls National first opened its doors in 1851 and operates 29 offices in five counties in upstate New York. It can be found online at
