Green Hills Public Library in Palos Hills recently hosted an I-Cash event that sought to reunite people with unclaimed money and property.
Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford’s Unclaimed Property Division has more than $1.5 billion in cash plus contents from Illinois safe deposit boxes that have been inactive for at least five years, Rutherford said. The I-Cash program helps reunite owners with that unclaimed property.
“More people are doing these unclaimed property searches than ever before,” Rutherford said. “It’s exciting to me because I want to see these valuable assets returned. I also hope everyone makes an attempt to review our online database annually so they don’t miss out on money or valuable assets the state is holding for them.”
