Abandoned Funds are financial assets that are unknown or lost, or have been left inactive, unclaimed or abandoned by its owner. The most common types of abandoned funds are dormant bank accounts, unclaimed insurance proceeds, stocks, dividends, uncashed checks, deposits, credit balances and refunds. Abandoned Funds assets are held by business or government entities (holders) for a set period, usually five years. If the holder is unable to locate or re-establish contact with the owner and return the asset, it is reported and remitted to the Florida Department of Financial Services, Division of Unclaimed Property.
