A Cash Dash program will come to Buffalo Grove July 19 through a program hosted by State Rep. Sid Mathias (R-53rd) in cooperation with Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford’s office.
The program will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. at .
“Cash Dash is an asset search done through a database managed by Treasurer Rutherford’s office,” Mathias said in a statement. “The treasurer is required to hold all unclaimed property and money in a Springfield vault, and people can attend this event to see if they have any unclaimed assets that are currently being held by the state.”
Assets that might be found through the Cash Dash search include money from inactive checking or savings accounts, unpaid wages, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, money orders, bill overpayments, paid up life insurance policies and safety deposit box contents.
In 2011, more than $100 million in unclaimed assets were returned to their rightful owners through the Cash Dash program.
“It is common for people to lose track of some assets when they move or when their loved ones pass away,” Mathias said. “The Cash Dash program relies on an easy-to-use searchable database to put these assets back into the proper hands.”
