Florida’s chief financial officer Jimmy Patronis says one in five Floridians has unclaimed property waiting for them.
That is why the CFO has launched the “Florida Treasure Hunt” to spread the word and help people recover cash that they might not even know about.
According to the state, more than $27 million in unclaimed property was returned to Floridians during the month of February and more than $349 million since March of last year.
Over the past four years, there has been more than $1.2 billion returned, including $328 million last year.
