Each July we post a list of unclaimed money, published pursuant to F.S. 116.21 (2) in the custody of Rick Ramsay, Sheriff of Monroe County, Florida. Unless such monies are claimed on or before September 1, of the same year, they shall be forfeited to Monroe County.
Persons having or claiming any interest in such funds or any portion of them shall file their written claims to the Sheriff of Monroe County, on or before September 1st, and show sufficient proof to the Sheriff of Monroe County of his/her ownership and upon doing so, shall be entitled to receive any part of so claimed monies so claimed.
We are currently past the deadline to claim any unclaimed funds.
