A billion dollars has been returned to Illinoisans and others under the direction of the state’s Treasurer. Mike Frerichs says that in the past five years his office has streamlined the process for people to receive their unclaimed property.
In the previous five years about $700 million was distributed by the Treasurer’s’ office.
There is still $3.5 billion in the unclaimed property fund. A google search of I Cash Illinois will send you to the web page to begin a search.
