Residents of Pike and Hancock counties can determine if the state is holding any money or unclaimed property for them at two I-Cash events planned by Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford.

I-Cash events will be held 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Community Center, 224 W. Washington in Pittsfield, and 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Thursday at the Masonic Lodge, 73 S. Adams in Carthage.

January lists from Rutherford's office show 4,693 Pike County owners have $823,641 in unclaimed property while 5,289 owners in Hancock have $656,476 in unclaimed property.

The I-Cash program helps reunite owners with unclaimed property. Examples of unclaimed property currently held by the treasurer's office includes money from inactive savings and checking accounts, unpaid wages or commissions, paid-up life insurance policies and safe deposit box contents.

More information about the I-Cash program is available by contacting the Unclaimed Property Division at 785-6998 or info@Icash.Illinois.gov and online at treasurer.il.gov. The website is updated weekly to reflect new properties remitted to the office.
