The Illinois State Treasurers Office has set records the past two years in terms of unclaimed property being returned to its rightful owner, and they are hoping to set a record again this year.
State Treasurer Mike Frerichs says one of his goals while in office is to return as much money as he can. He is hopeful the money will be spent at local businesses as well to help the economy.
Frerichs says the Money Match Program is now a full go, and with this program they are making it easier than every to get your unclaimed property. The Treasurers Office will mail the unclaimed property to its rightfull owner as long it is less than $2000.
Frerichs appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
