I recently found an amount of money that the state of Illinois had been holding under the auspices of ” unclaimed property”. The amount was $333. The state acquired this in August of 2017. It’s suppose to represent 100 ozs of silver found in a SD box. According to the state treasurers website, I’m also due monthly compounded interest since they encumbered this.
I just received a check for $410.20. Does that sound right to you? $77 for almost 6 years of interest?
I haven’t cashed this yet because I just thought this was way too low. Would you mind weighing in on this please?
Thank you for any advice you can give me.
