CFO Jimmy Patronis: $321 Million Back to Florida Residents and Businesses in One Year  
-New Yearly Record of Unclaimed Property Returns in First Year in Office-
 
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis announced that his Division of Unclaimed Property returned more than $321 million to Florida residents and businesses, breaking the previously held record set in the program’s 57-year history by more than $8 million.
 
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “My priority is to make sure we do everything possible to return unclaimed dollars and property back to Florida residents and businesses. Today’s announcement broke a record, but more importantly it means more money back in the hands of Floridians. Since taking office, we not only broke the yearly record, but also set a new monthly record during April. Florida has remained a national leader with our proactive efforts to return unclaimed property, and we will continue working to raise the bar even higher.”
 
Since CFO Patronis took office July 1, 2017, his Division of Unclaimed Property returned $321,666,927 exceeding the previous yearly record of $313,411,800, which was set during Fiscal Year 16/17. Nearly 635,000 claims have been paid since July 1, 2017.
 
More than 14 million accounts valued at roughly $2 billion remain to be claimed and are available to claim at any time and at no cost. This unclaimed property comes from dormant accounts in financial institutions, insurance and utility companies, securities and trust holdings. Además de dinero y cajas de seguridad, la propiedad no reclamada incluye propiedad tangible como relojes, joyas, monedas, divisas, artículos históricos y artículos varios de cajas de seguridad abandonadas.
 
Visite www.fltreasurehunt.gov para verificar si tiene cuentas que el programa de propiedad no reclamada puede estar guardando para usted o su negocio. Per Florida law, the account holder must submit a claim form in order to claim an account.
