Florida Treasure Hunt - Search for Unclaimed Money

The Florida Treasure Hunt helps Floridians locate lost and unclaimed money.  Anybody can conduct a free internet search for missing cash at the Treasurer's website.

Currently, the Chief Financial Officer of Florida holds unclaimed property accounts valued at more than $1 billion, mostly from dormant accounts in financial institutions, insurance and utility companies, securities and trust holdings. In addition to money and securities, unclaimed property includes tangible property such as watches, jewelry, coins, currency, stamps, historical items and other miscellaneous articles from abandoned safe deposit boxes. Unclaimed money is deposited into the state school fund, where it is used for public education. There is, however, no statute of limitations, and citizens have the right to claim their property any time at no cost.

If you have questions regarding how the FL treasure hunt works, you can reference the state's Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page...  Where you can find how long the process takes?  What forms are required? and What happens if you moved out-of-state?

It's also important to note that you can search on the website to see if any deceased/dead relatives have any unclaimed assets that may rightfully become the property of their estate (and eventually you).
