August 8th is National Dollar Day. This holiday commemorates the day the U.S monetary systems was established by Congress in 1786. You have worked hard for your dollars, and as such, it is important you protect it.  Did you know, two million home burglaries are reported each year? Many of these burglaries result in cash being stolen. In honor of National Dollar Day, here are some tips to prevent your cash from being stolen or damaged:

Tips to Prevent Your Cash from Being Stolen or Damaged:

  • Put cash in small quantities in different locations in your home
  • Hide your cash in unique objects like hollowed-out books, house plants, and in boxes in the garage labeled “Ornaments” or “School Projects”.
  • Avoid putting your cash in a liquid container, like a mayonnaise jar.
  • Never put your cash in a locked box.


Homeowner’s insurance may cover damages to personal property like clothes, furniture, and additional living expenses should you need to move temporarily while your home is being repaired. However, it may not provide coverage for cash should it become damaged or stolen. To be protected, you may need to purchase specific coverage, to insure a certain amount of cash. Florida Peninsula offers such coverage with a limit on cash up to $200 and it may be increased to $500 with one of our Premium Packages. To learn more about all of Florida Peninsula’s coverage options, speak to your agent, or give us a call at 877-229-2244.


We hope you follow these tips to prevent your cash from being stolen or damaged and enjoy National Dollar Day.
