What is Unclaimed Money?
Unclaimed money is money whose rightful owner has not been located. This happens when people move from one state to another, or change location within their state. As a result, people who are entitled to unclaimed funds do not receive tax refund checks, they have money in closed bank accounts, have assets under their name that have not been claimed, and have money at the hands of financial authorities that hold it for them.
After approximately 12 months, unclaimed money is transferred to the state that keeps it until its rightful owners claim it back. According to the laws in the US, the state or any other authority cannot use unclaimed money, which means that you can get back lost money whenever you need. In addition to money owed to you by the state, you can also claim back money that belongs to your relatives, living or deceased.
Lost Money Search in Illinois
Like many other states, Illinois is requesting former and current residents of the state to reclaim their money. To help the residents of Illinois find property and money that belong to them, the state treasurer is now operating a website that can help track down money. If you want to find out if Illinois is holding money that belongs to you or one of your family members, you will need to enter these details to the search directory:
- Last or business name
- First name
- ZIP code
- Property ID
If you do not have one of the details above, you can run a name-based search with free unclaimed money search sites. These kinds of websites perform a public records search that can help you track down missing money based on your name. This is an easy method for searching unclaimed money, but it has a few faults. First of all, websites that do not charge their users for any fees for the services they provide lack the financial means to access all the public records in Illinois. Second of all, the lack of means also makes unclaimed money websites unable to provide a customer support service and a security system for their users.
There are also free unclaimed property websites that will charge you usage fees for their services. These websites use the term "free" as a promotional tool, and charge their users for money for the services they provide.
