I-Cash Returns $16-Million In July
(Springfield, IL) -- The state dished out more than 16-million-dollars last month, returning money to people who've left it sitting in inactive bank accounts or left a job without getting their last check. It's part of the I-Cash program which is holding on to more than two-billion-dollars worth of cash and other items, like war medals and antique jewelry. State Treasurer Dan Rutherford heads the program and he says they're on target to return more money in 2014 than any other year in history. So far this year they've turned over more than 87-million dollars to its rightful owners. To see if you have money sitting in the I-Cash account, check out Treasurer.IL.gov.
