AURORA — Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford will have an I-Cash event in Aurora on Monday.

I-Cash is the new name for the former Cash Dash program, which assisted people in finding out if the state is holding any money or unclaimed property entitled to them.

Rutherford’s office said 172,184 people in Kane County have $36,216,632 in unclaimed property. This is according to the January list of unclaimed property holders.

Rutherford and his I-Cash workers will be at the Two Brothers Roundhouse, 205 N. Broadway, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

I-Cash staff will be on site to help local residents find out if they have unclaimed property.

The recent rebranding and marketing campaign has dramatically increased the number of searches on the I-Cash (formerly Cash Dash) website and the number of claims filed, Rutherford’s office said.

The treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division has $1.7 billion in cash, plus contents from Illinois safe deposit boxes that have been inactive for at least five years.

To find out if you have unclaimed property through I-Cash, visit the treasurer’s website at and follow the I-Cash link. The website is updated weekly to reflect new properties remitted to the office.

People also can contact the Unclaimed Property Division by calling 217-785-6998 or e-mailing, although searches cannot be completed by telephone.
