Here’s a friendly reminder: Don’t forget to gather all of your things after airport screening.

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration recovered $926,030.44 in loose change and paper currency in fiscal year 2019 that ended Sept. 30, including almost $18,900 in foreign currency, that travelers removed from their pockets and left in bins.

That was less than the $960,105 abandoned in fiscal year 2018.

The unclaimed currency was deposited into a special fund for providing critical aviation security programs, according to a TSA release Friday.
