Florida's Bureau of Unclaimed Property

The State of Florida's Chief Financial Officer oversees the Department of Financial Services including the state's Bureau of Unclaimed property which allows Floridians and others search the state's database.

As of 2009, there was more than $1 billion of unclaimed money in Florda--mostly from dorman accounts in financial institutions, insurance companies, utility companies and securities (stocks & bonds) and trust holdings. Additionally, there is some tangible property such as jewelry, coins, currency, stamps and other items from abandoned safe deposit boxes.

Florida deposits these assets into the state school fund to help the public education projects---however, there is no statute of limitations in the Sunshine state and citizens can claim their property at any time at no cost.
