JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Need a little extra cash? This is not a gimmick and there are no strings attached to it. You may have money that belongs to you and you don’t even know it. The state of Florida holds $ 2.3 billion waiting for rightful owners to apply and claim what belongs to them.
If COVID-19 affects everyone in one way or another, checking your name or the name of a relative can mean extra money just in time for the holidays.
The money stored comes from a long list of places like forgotten bank accounts, credit card balances, rebates, payment checks, utility deposits and more. So News4JAX teamed up with the CFO office during the “Holiday Money Hunt” to find out that tens of millions of dollars are available in Northeast Florida alone.
