There may be unclaimed property with your name on it and the state of Illinois wants you to have your money. Illinois Treasurer Michael Frerichs says that money that belongs to you is better spent in your hands than sitting in some holding account waiting for you.
Frerichs says that while a lot of money has been reclaimed by the rightful owners, there are new property claims that get added every day.
