What Is the Escheat Process?

The escheat process is a sort of last resort when a decedent has left behind unclaimed assets. When there are no living or found heirs to accept the assets left behind, escheat is a way to resolve the question of where the assets will go.

Escheat cases can involve unclaimed property such as:

  • Real property
  • Bank accounts
  • IRAs
  • Life insurance policies

Claiming Escheated Property

Even if someone’s assets have been escheated, Florida allows a 10-year period during which anyone with a valid claim may attempt to collect the assets. If the claim is found to be valid, the state will hand over the assets without interest. Invalid claims will be denied and the state will keep the funds. Once the 10-year period has ended, you are no longer able to file a claim.
