The Florida State Archives has digitized its collection of Confederate pension records with over 13,000 pensions available online

Once you have located your ancestor on this list, you can view the pension file online.
1.Go to http://www.floridamemory.com/Collections/PensionFiles/
2.If you do not have an Adobe Acrobat Reader click on the link to get a free version. You will need this to view the pension file(s).
3.Now you are ready to view the pension file. There are two boxes (a) is SEARCH BY, choose the name or the application number. (b) This is where you place the name or application number, but it must be which ever you have chosen to search by.
When the first page comes up, click on the application number to the left. The pages are numbered and I found them easy to read…at least the ones I spot-checked. : ) One other note, I found that you can skip page 001 as that is a pdf of the cover page.

History of the Confederate Pensions in Florida
The first Confederate pensions in Florida were authorized in 1885 and granted to veterans the sum of $5.00 per month. The next three decades saw a new Confederate pension bill introduced at nearly every session of the Legislature. Residency requirements were added and adjusted, militia members and widows were declared eligible, various financial qualifications were added and changed, and the amount and method of distribution were changed many times.
A Board of Commissioners consisting of three members was appointed under the first pension law and it remained essentially the same, despite changes in name and the inability of the legislature to settle on the identity of the third member. The Governor and Comptroller were members of the board from the beginning, although the third seat was passed at various times from the Adjutant General to the Secretary of State to the Attorney General to the Treasurer, back to the Attorney General, and again back to the Treasurer before finally stabilizing in 1915 as the Governor, Comptroller, and Treasurer. The clerical and day-to-day operations of administering the pension laws were carried out under the supervision of the Comptroller.
