TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Did you know you could have unclaimed money you may not even know about?

Right now, there’s a whopping $400 million up for grabs in the state of Florida.  Residents taking advantage of this opportunity have only claimed only $519,000 thus far.

Investigative reporter Shannon Behnken is teamed up with Florida’s Chief Financial Officer to help reunite viewers with money they don’t know they have.

The state office is responsible for holding onto unclaimed money such as bank accounts, insurance policies, utility refunds and life insurance.

There is no statute of limitations and the money sits until someone claims it.
