View Comments

The state of Illinois is sitting on $1.5 billion and it’s just waiting for you or someone you know to claim it.

It’s money owed to millions of people, with no strings attached and no lottery to win. The money is part of the state’s unclaimed cash and property.

From un-cashed paychecks and unclaimed tax refunds to property left behind in safe deposit boxes, more than 10 million people are owed some amount of cash or property sitting in state vaults.

Click here to find out if any of that cash or property belongs to you or a family member, visit the Illinois State Treasurer’s website, follow the Cash Dash link and enter your name and city to search their records.
