Remember to keep your account active!

The State of Illinois law governing unclaimed property states the presumptive period of abandonment for deposit accounts is 3 years.

As a result, accounts without any owner activity for a 3-year period will be turned over to the Illinois State Treasurer’s Office.

 We value our members and ask that you remember to keep your account active!
