Moline, IL… Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford will be at the Moline Public Library on Tuesday, September 25, 2012 along with State Representative Rich Morthland (R-Cordova) in a joint effort to connect Illinois residents with their cash and assets through the Treasurer’s new I-Cash program.

“When people move or loved ones pass away, businesses and banks are required to turn over unclaimed accounts to the treasurer’s office,” explained Morthland. “It’s common for people to lose track of those assets. This is a great opportunity to get the help you need to reclaim what’s yours.”

Some examples of unclaimed property currently held by the treasurer’s office include:

  • Money from inactive savings and checking accounts
  • Unpaid wages or commissions
  • Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds
  • Money orders and bill overpayments
  • Paid-up life insurance policies
  • Safe deposit box contents

I-Cash staff will be onsite from 10 am to 12 pm to help residents locate unclaimed property. Rutherford will be available to the media from 11:15-11:45.

To find out if you have unclaimed property through I-Cash, you can visit the treasurer's website at www.treasurer.il.gov and follow the I-Cash link. You can contact the Unclaimed Property Division by calling (217) 785-6998 or emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Presents Congressional Record Statement to Veterans

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack today welcomed ninety-two Iowa veterans of the Greatest Generation and forty-three Gold Star family members to the nation’s capital and presented them with copies of the Congressional Record statement he submitted honoring their service.

The group traveled to Washington as part of the Honor Flight, which is an all expense paid trip for veterans so that they can visit our nation’s capital and the memorials that were built in their honor.  Today’s Honor Flight is particularly notable because Korean War veterans and Gold Star families, who have lost loved ones in Iraq and Afghanistan, are also joining the World War II veterans on the trip.  The Honor Flight left from the Quad Cities Airport this morning and will return tonight.

“This is truly a special Honor Flight because it brings together World War II and Korean War veterans with families of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Loebsack.  “I am tremendously proud and humbled to welcome members of the Greatest Generation and our Gold Star families to our nation’s capital today.  On behalf of every Iowan I represent, I thank them for their service and sacrifice.”

Loebsack is an avid supporter of our veterans. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, he has worked to increase veterans’ health care and benefits funding by over 70 percent and has worked to make sure that each and every veteran is treated with the dignity and honor that they deserve.

High resolution photos are available here and here.

A copy of the Congressional Record statement can be found here.
