I-Cash Program Returns Money To Area Residents
"It's been a dramatic success. In 2011 we were able to return for the first time in the state of Illinois to return over $100-million. In 2012, we were actually able to return $129-million," said Rutherford while with the I-Cash team in Centralia. "Think about it, that's $129-million dollars that went back into the purses and wallets of the people of Illinois that they didn't even know they had it coming."
There's a lot of assets that were last known to belong to someone in Marion County. "In Marion County, I'm holding $2.8-million worth of property with an address in Marion County and I have 15,300 names in our data base," said Rutherford. "I truly encourage everyone to take advantage and see if we have money that truly belongs to them."
While the I-Cash staff has left the local area, Rutherford says anyone can check their name and the names of their relatives on the internet. The website is icash.illinois.gov.
