Some residents and business owners on the First Coast may have “free” money waiting for them.
On Monday, Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis announced that he is re-launching #FloridaHolidayMoneyHunt and said the Northeast Florida area has about $145 million in unclaimed property.
He is asking residents and businesses to see if they have any unclaimed property, which could be dormant bank accounts, unclaimed insurance proceeds, stocks, dividends, uncashed checks, deposits, credit balances and refunds, Patronis said in a statement.
“Now is the perfect time to search to see if you or your business has unclaimed property in Florida,” Patronis said. “With the holiday season being an expensive time of year, we could all use a little extra spending money.”
Here’s the amount of unclaimed property within the First Coast Counties with Duval being the highest at over $101 million in unclaimed property and St. Johns County being the second-highest at about $16 million.
- Baker $936,324
- Bradford $1,383,236
- Clay $10,538,233
- Columbia $4,354,000
- Duval $101,855,552
- Nassau $4,450,011
- Putnam $5,410,640
- St. Johns $16,014,292
- Union $505,525
Currently, the entire state of Florida has about $2 billion in unclaimed property. Since taking office in 2017, Patronis has helped return more than $1 billion back to Floridians using #floridaholidaymoneyhunt on Instagram.
