You may have some hidden treasure.
Representatives from the Illinois Treasurer's Office have billions of dollars in unclaimed property to distribute.
They were inside the Local 4 building last night to help people find out what they're missing.
One in four people throughout Illinois will find they have property or cash to claim. There's $2.5 billion bucks out there belonging to everyday people.
Property sometimes goes unclaimed when residents move, or when a loved one passes away.
The program is free. It is recommended residents check twice a year.
Iowa residents who have worked or lived in Illinois may also have money.
