Illinois State Treasurer Cash Dash

The State Treasurer’s Office currently has $1.4 billion in lost, forgotten or abandoned cash and assets that belongs to 10 million Illinois residents. Some of this so-called “unclaimed property” could be yours.

Twice a year, the office publicizes the last known owner and address for each new property that is over $100. The names are kept in our online Cash Dash database forever. Recently, the Treasurer’s Office published the names of 66,492 new owners of unclaimed property owners in various news papers throughout the state.

In 2009, the Treasurer’s Office returned nearly $83 million in lost funds and assets to more than 39,000 Illinois residents and businesses statewide.
