Unclaimed Property Still Increasing in Florida

Unclaimed property is at an all-time high in the state of Florida. Currently, the Chief Financial Officer of Florida is in possession of almost $1 billion of unclaimed property accounts. These unclaimed property accounts come mostly from dormant accounts in financial institutions, insurance and utility companies, and, securities and trust holdings. In addition to money and securities, unclaimed property includes tangible property such as watches, jewelry, coins, currency, stamps, historical items and other miscellaneous articles from abandoned safe deposit boxes.

Residents of the U.S., who might have unclaimed funds lying in the state treasury of Florida, Florida law requires claimants to provide a copy of their driver’s license or another form of government-issued photographic identification. If your Identification does not reflect your current address, please include other documentation (such as a current utility bill, etc.) reflecting your current mailing address, in addition to your Identification and proof of ownership. If the account has more than one owner and one of the owners is deceased, a certified death certificate for the deceased owner is required in addition to the Identification for the person claiming the account.
