In other news, more than $ 30 million in unclaimed property was returned nationwide last month, Florida’s CFO Jimmy Patronis said in a press release on Monday.
This includes $ 1,715,740 for Floridians in the Jacksonville area.
Unclaimed property can include dormant bank accounts, unclaimed insurance proceeds, stocks, dividends, un cashed checks, deposits, balances, and refunds.
“There’s an estimated one in five chance that you have money just waiting to be claimed,” Patronis said in the press release. “It only takes a few minutes to find unclaimed property. I encourage individuals and business owners to search FLTreasureHunt.gov now.”
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the state has returned more than $ 379 million, more than any other 13-month period in the program’s 60-year history.
