Holiday Money Hunt: Don’t leave your cash behind!

It’s money time! Every year, News4JAX teams up with Florida CFO Jimmy Patronis and his staff for The Holiday Money Hunt – to help you get extra cash in your pocket around the holidays.

And boy, this couldn’t come at a better time. This year has been hard on a lot of us. Grocery prices are through the roof, rent keeps going up, gas prices are still high – we don’t have to tell you, you’re living it!

But here’s the thing: You may have money owed to you that you didn’t know about — and now is your chance to claim it.


Whether it’s from a forgotten bank account or a long, lost relative, the state of Florida is holding a whopping $2.7 billion – waiting for the rightful owners to come forward and claim their cash.

It’s absolutely free to check your name and claim what’s yours, and the state wants to get it to you as soon as possible.

Here’s what’s up for grabs county-by-county:

Alachua County: $30,624,390

Baker County: $1,180,283

Bradford County: $1,794,896
