Illinois Revised Uniform Unclaimed Property Act
In Illinois, as in most states, by law abandoned property is turned over to the state after it has been untouched for a period of time. Property that is subject to unclaimed property laws includes deposits in bank accounts, contents of safe deposit boxes, uncashed bank checks, and other types of financial property. Effective January 1, 2018 Illinois changed the time periods that determine when inactive accounts will be considered to be abandoned. * A few examples are shown below, along with the periods of inactivity which qualify property to be considered abandoned under the new law.
What can you do? Here are a few tips.
You have worked hard for your money. Keep it safe, and keep accounts active. If you have any questions about your accounts, contact your financial institution or other holder of your financial assets.
