In the last four years, the I-Cash program has returned more than $500-million in lost money or unclaimed property to residents in Illinois. This week, residents in Alton, Jerseyville and Carlinville will have a chance to learn more about the program and inquire about any potential funds or property that may be recovered.

Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford says these types of events have been successful in the past.
