More than $196 million up for grabs in Northeast Florida (Courtesy of WJXT-TV) — If you want some money — no strings attached — then you’re in luck. Of the $2.5 billion in unclaimed cash and property being held by the state, more than $196 million belongs to people in Northeast Florida.
The money being held comes from a long list of places like forgotten bank accounts, credit card balances, rebates, paychecks, utility deposits and more. Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis and his office keep it all safe until the rightful owners come forward to claim it.
