Press Releases

[P]eople forget things. They lose things. We’ve all seen the plethora of reality shows in which folks bid for the contents of unclaimed storage sheds — usually junk other than the treasures the producers seed the units with.
This week, CFO Jeff Atwater and the Department of Financial Services will host the 2015 Florida Unclaimed Property Auction at the Jacksonville Marriott. Media opportunities begin today, July 30, with the delivery of an unclaimed property check to a local Jacksonville woman. The auction’s public preview will be held Friday, July 31, and the live auction will be held Saturday, August 1. In addition to the media opportunities listed below, interviews can be arranged by request.
Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and the Florida Bureau of Unclaimed Property are gearing up for their next auction Saturday in Jacksonville. The items featured are taken from safe deposit boxes that go unclaimed by the families of people who died in Florida.
