Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford will hold a "Cash Dash" event Oct. 6 to help DuPage County residents determine if the state is holding any money or unclaimed property entitled to them.
From 2:15 to 2:45 p.m., make remarks and hold a media availability.
From 2 to 4 p.m., Cash Dash staff will help local residents determine if they have unclaimed property.
The treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division has $1.5 billion in cash, plus contents from Illinois bank safety deposit boxes that have been abandoned for at least five years.
Those interested in seeing if they have unclaimed property can visit www.treasurer.il.gov and click on the "Cash Dash" link.
