Abandoned bank accounts, stocks, items in safe-deposit boxes and other unclaimed property are turned over to the state treasurer when the owners can't immediately be found. The treasurer's I-Cash program attempts to return property to the rightful owners or their heirs. Last year, it returned more than $100 million worth of property.
To find out if you have unclaimed property through I-Cash, you can visit www.icash.illinois.gov. The website is updated weekly to reflect new properties remitted to the office. For more information, contact the Unclaimed Property Division by calling 217-785-6998 or emailing email@example.com.
