The Illinois Treasurers office have been very busy with your I-cash requests, and for some, it's really paying off.

State Treasurer Dan Rutherford and his staff were in our studios Wednesday, trying to return unclaimed property to its rightful owner.

At our phone-a-thon alone, 618 calls were answered, and 216 of those had hits on unclaimed cash or property.

If you would like to see if the state has any unclaimed property with your name on it, log on to Icash.illinois.gov
