Illinois Treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Money Match Program

The Illinois State Treasurer’s Office has begun sending letters as part of their Unclaimed Property Money Match program, where they automatically reimburse Illinois residents who have up to $5,000 in unclaimed property. Previously, the limit for the Money Match program was $2,000, but recent bipartisan legislation increased that limit.

These notices introduce you to the program, let you know that a check is on its way, and are legitimate, but if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to my office, or Illinois State Treasurer Michael Frerichs’ office.
