Unclaimed Property Event
Wednesday, January 19, 2022 (10:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (CST)
Unclaimed Property Event January 19, 2022 Bonnie Jefferson, Ogle County Marketing Representative from the Illinois State Treasurer Office will be at Rock River Center on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon to connect Illinois residents with their unclaimed property. Bonnie will meet with people on a first come, first served basis.
Unclaimed property is money or assets that have been separated from their owner for at least five years. Businesses and banks are required by law to turn over the unclaimed accounts to the state so they can be returned to their rightful owners.
Often the owner doesn’t know the property exists. Examples include:
- Inactive savings and checking accounts
- Unpaid wages or commissions
- Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds
- Money orders and bill overpayments
- Paid-up life insurance policies
- Safe deposit box contents
Please also note not only individuals but companies, hospitals, not for profit organizations, etc. may also have monies. Bonnie will have a computer and be able to see if attendees have any unclaimed funds. If they do indeed have money (1 out of 7 people do), she will help them complete the paper work.
There is a website that is open to the public http://Icash.illinois.gov however many are not aware of this. If you think you may have some unclaimed assets or property, stop in and see Bonnie. No appointment is necessary.
