Submitted by State Rep. Sid Mathias

Do you suspect you might have unclaimed assets being held by the state? State Rep. Sid Mathias will host a "Cash Dash" program 5-7 p.m. Thursday, at Longfellow Elementary School, 501 S. Arlington Heights Road, Buffalo Grove. Cash Dash is an asset search done on a database managed by Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford's office. The treasurer holds unclaimed property and money in a Springfield vault, and people can see if they have any unclaimed assets currently being held -- money from inactive checking or savings accounts, unpaid wages, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, money orders, bill overpayments, paid up life insurance policies or safety deposit box contents. In 2011 more than $100 million in unclaimed assets were returned to their rightful owners.
