Finances for Seniors

On Guard for Seniors provides seniors the information they need about insurance and financial transactions so they can stay on guard and ask the right questions to make sound financial decisions.

Holocaust Fee Waiver

An estimated 12,500 Holocaust survivors and their families in Florida are being assessed an international wire transfer fee that amounts to a 10 percent tax on each payment the survivor receives. In partnership with financial institutions in Florida, CFO Atwater has taken action to have the wire transfer fee waived. This website provides access to the fee waiver forms Holocaust survivors can send to their financial institutions and other useful information.

Unclaimed Property

The Chief Financial Officer holds unclaimed property consisting mostly of money from dormant accounts in financial institutions, insurance and utility companies, securities and trust holdings. In addition to money and securities, unclaimed property includes tangible property such as watches, jewelry, coins, currency, stamps, historical items and other miscellaneous articles from abandoned safe deposit boxes. The Florida Treasure Hunt website helps citizens search for unclaimed property, get answers to their questions about unclaimed property and check the status of a claim.

Deferred Compensation

This website provides information about the State of Florida's Government Employees Deferred Compensation Plan. Enrollment procedures, investment providers, investment performance, and planning tools help make sure that state of Florida government employees have the information needed to make informed decisions about retirement.
