Unclaimed Funds

 

What are Unclaimed Funds?

Unclaimed funds are checks issued by our agency that have not been cashed. These uncashed checks are eventually submitted to the State of Florida as unclaimed funds if not claimed within a specified time. If unclaimed funds are not claimed from our office, then according to Florida Statutes Chapter 717 for Unclaimed Property, they are reported and remitted to the State of Florida Unclaimed Funds Division after a one year dormancy period or to the appropriate state of last known address.
