TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Today, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis is playing Cupid this Valentine’s Day and looking for Floridians with “Valentine’s-themed names” and urging them to search Florida’s Unclaimed Property database. Currently, Florida has more than $19 million in unclaimed property with Floridians who have the names listed below. Additionally, since CFO Patronis took office in 2017, more than $1.9 billion has been returned to Floridians in unclaimed property.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “Roses are red, violets are blue, search now because you could have unclaimed property waiting for you! I love to give money back to Floridians and in hopes to brighten your day, we have put together a list of Valentine-themed names and how much money is available per name. If you have one of these words in your name or your business name, I encourage you to begin your search today at FLTreasureHunt.gov! It’s your money, treat yourself this Valentine’s Day by claiming some extra cash.”

Unclaimed property is a financial asset that is unknown or lost, or has been left inactive, unclaimed or abandoned by its owner. The most common types of unclaimed property are dormant bank accounts, unclaimed insurance proceeds, stocks, dividends, uncashed checks, deposits, credit balances and refunds. Unclaimed property also includes contents from abandoned safe deposit boxes in financial institutions. Unclaimed property assets are held by business or government entities (holders) for a set period of time, usually 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. To search for unclaimed property or to claim an account, go online to FLTreasureHunt.gov.
