$1Billion Unclaimed Property image This week, I was excited to announce that since I became your CFO, we have returned $1 billion back to Floridians in unclaimed property. This news is especially important as many individuals and businesses are looking for financial relief due to the impacts of COVID-19. Special thanks to my Division of Unclaimed Property for working extremely hard to hit this record, even during these challenging times.

I will continue working every day to ensure every cent of the more than $2 billion in unclaimed property is returned back to the pockets of Floridians. An estimated one in five Floridians have unclaimed property just waiting to be claimed, free-of-charge. I’m encouraging all individuals and businesses to search now at FLTreasureHunt.gov and help us return another $1 billion.

As we closely monitor Hurricane Isaias, it’s my top priority to ensure Floridians have the tools and resources you need to prepare for the possibility of heavy rain, wind, and flooding impacting our state this weekend. As Floridians, we know all too well the devastation hurricanes can have on our lives and we must take this threat seriously.

As we saw with Hurricane Michael, storms can form and strengthen quickly, leaving little time to prepare and evacuate. The time is now to prepare and protect your home and business. Heed all watches and warnings from state and local officials and do not wait until a storm is making landfall. Prepare now, Florida!
