HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. – Today, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis announced more than $28 million in unclaimed property was returned to Floridians in the month of September 2020. Additionally, since CFO Patronis took office three years ago more than $1 billion has been returned to Floridians in Unclaimed Property.
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “We’re working hard to get our economy back on its feet and that’s why I am proud to announce that for the month of September more than $28 million went to the pockets of Floridians. Since the pandemic began in March, we have recovered and returned more than $216 million, which is especially important because now is the time when people need it the most. I’m looking forward to continuing to work hard and close out 2020 as a record-high year in returns. I encourage all Floridians to search now for unclaimed property at FLTreasureHunt.gov.”
