Under the Illinois Unclaimed Property Act, no person or company shall be entitled to a fee for discovering abandoned property until it has been in the custody of the state for at least 24 months. Fees for discovering property that has been in the state's custody more than 24 months shall be limited to not more than 10% of the value of the property. Please try using various combinations of your name in order to search for unclaimed money. Also bear in mind that there may be assets in your maiden name. Each year billions of dollars in dormant or lost accounts go without ever being found when governments, companies and banks lose track of the true owner of the money. This could be due to a host of reasons like marriage break up, misspelled names, businesses going bankrupt, banks getting dissolved, unexpected migration or relocation of jobs, address changes without prior notification, death, post office errors etc. If you know anyone who has ever moved or died, the state of Illinois is probably holding unclaimed funds in their name.

Illinois unclaimed property or money could be in the form of funds from a dormant checking and savings accounts, un-cashed money orders, cashiers checks, mineral royalty payments, safe deposit box contents, unused gift certificates, unclaimed insurance benefits, lost cash dividends, stock, found utility deposits, unclaimed security deposits, and court deposits. Illinois unclaimed property, which was held by another state or a company, is kept in protective custody if they could not be paid to the rightful owner. The owners last recorded state address is always taken into consideration with reference to Illinois's unclaimed money.

Make sure you check with every state in which you have ever lived (unclaimed property is generally turned over to the state of your last address as reflected in the records of the business holding your found money, stock, etc.).

Do not assume that the business has your last known address. If the business holding your property doesn't have a valid address for you, the property is supposed to be sent to the state where the business was incorporated. Many large corporations are from: Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Illinois, California or other areas.
