[February 18, 2009]  Are you are one of the Logan County residents who have lost money or assets being held at the Illinois State Treasurer's Office? Over $240,500 has been turned over for Logan County residents just in the past six months.

HardwareA representative from Illinois State Treasurer Giannoulias' office will conduct Cash Dash searches on the state's online database and file Cash Dash claims from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Feb. 24 in Room 11 at the Logan County Courthouse, 601 Broadway St.

To file a claim, please bring a current form of identification, proof of your current address, previous names, past addresses, Social Security number, and the relationship or authority if you are an heir.

"Cash Dash is free and easy to use, and the chance that you are on the list is greater than you might think," Giannoulias said. "If you find your name, you could end up with some extra spending money."

Even if you were not on previous lists posted, you may still have cash or assets coming your way. The state's database currently lists more than $1 billion being held for more than 10 million Illinois residents and businesses.

The Cash Dash program reunites Illinois residents with hidden wealth legally known as "unclaimed property." This wealth can be anything from long-lost bank accounts to entire estates that never made it to a rightful owner.

Time: 1:30-4:30 p.m.

Date: Tuesday, Feb. 24

Place: Logan County Courthouse, Room 11, 601 Broadway St., Lincoln
