TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- There are more than 61,000 unclaimed property accounts in the state of Florida. The accounts are worth $25 million, and some of it could be yours.
Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater said the money is part of a settlement with AIG related to unclaimed life insurance benefits.
This represents only the first of what is expected to be additional remittances to be made by the insurer.
"These new accounts represent dollars loved ones set aside to secure financial stability for their families. Holding companies accountable means these dollars will now be returned to their rightful owners across the state," Atwater said.
