Unclaimed Property Auction at IL State Fair

A staple of the Illinois State Fair is coming back. The state’s unclaimed property auction. The Treasurer is preparing for another sale of valuable unclaimed items. Michael Frerichs says they have already returned more than a million properties that total more than $1.5 billion in value.

The state can’t simply hold all the items in perpetuity, so they auction surplus items and hold those dollars for the family to eventually claim.
