Unclaimed Property

September 15th, 2009 by flanews

There are millions of dollars in unclaimed jewelry, antiques, and cash sitting in the state’s safe deposit box. Florida’s Chief Financial Officer oversees the unclaimed property. CFO Alex Sink is on a mission to match people up with the missing items. Sink says since the economy took a nose dive more people are looking to her office to see if they have unclaimed treasure.

“We are finding in this down economy that we’re having more calls into our call center. We had two million hits on the website last year, people just scrambling around. You know when times get tough I always say you’ve got to look under the sofa and find extra pennies, dimes and nickels and quarters,” said Sink.
