Illinois Treasurer Michael Frerichs speaks at an Illinois Democratic Party brunch on August 16, 2017. It is now a bit easier for the state of Illinois to get people money that they may be owed. If you paid taxes in Illinois last year, Illinois Treasurer Mike Frerichs said he has all he needs to see if his office is holding money with your name on it. Frerichs this week unveiled plans for his Money Match program. It matches people who file state taxes with the list of people in the state with unclaimed property.
