Dear Fellow Floridians:
My office is charged with holding unclaimed property accounts mostly from dormant accounts in financial institutions, insurance and utility companies, securities and trust holdings. But, we also hold property from long-forgotten safety deposit boxes.
So, have you checked www.fltreasurehunt.gov to see if you have any unclaimed property or cash?
This week we partnered with WFLA in Tampa to host an unclaimed property phone bank where 2,292 accounts were claimed. The dollar amount is still being totaled and I look forward to announcing how much we returned. Phone banks are a great way to reach more people and encourage them to check the website.
So, haven’t checked yet? What are you waiting for?
