Is is estimated that, one in five Floridians has money sitting in a state treasury account,.......but it's entirely up to you to claim your property. The state of Florida holds on to millions of dollars until it is claimed by the rightful owner or that person's heirs. Many people who have unclaimed cash don't realize it.
The unclaimed property the state keeps an eye on includes things like: stocks, bonds, savings accounts, security deposits, contents of safe deposit boxes, insurance proceeds and other valuables which are reported to the state as unclaimed by banks and other financial institutions after five years. If the holder is unable to locate, re-establish contact with the owner and return the asset, it is reported and remitted to the Florida Department of Financial Services, Division of Unclaimed Property.
There is no statute of limitations on unclaimed property in Florida. Account owners, or their heirs, can claim their funds indefinitely, free of charge.
This is a WOW..... State of Florida authorities say $323 million was paid out to Floridians last year.
To see if you have money in the state's care, go to FLTreasureHunt.gov and search under your name or a business name.
The U.S. government lacks a central website to find unclaimed funds. To search for unclaimed money that may be lying in a different state's treasury, check this list of treasurer's offices.
