Does Florida owe you money? Here’s how to find out

ORLANDO, Fla. — Some Floridians are missing out on more than $5 million in unclaimed money.

The Department of Labor told Channel 9 most of the money it recovers belongs to people who often change where they live due to seasonal work or from moving from job to job and their past employers don’t have an updated address.


The biggest industries with unclaimed money are construction and food services.
