More than $321 million was returned to Florida residents and businesses from the state's unclaimed property in the past fiscal year.
Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis took office in July 2017 and said this year's total broke last year's record by $8 million.
Since last July, nearly 635,000 claims were paid, but there are still more than 14 million accounts valued at about $2 billion that haven't been claimed. Unclaimed property is found in dormant accounts in insurance and utility companies, financial institutions, securities and trust holdings. It also includes tangible property such as coins, currency, watches, jewelry, stamps and historical items.
