bank account

People in Illinois now have a faster, easier way to find out if the state is holding any of their unclaimed cash or property.

43-year-old man previously accused of attempting to cash forged checks belonging to a suburban Chicago woman who died in 1994 has been charged with murder.

Officials say about $33,500 in donations and other funds have been released to the widow of a northern Illinois police officer who authorities say killed himself after embezzling from a youth program.

Illinois’ treasurer says the state is advancing a plan to create special bank accounts for the parents of children with autism or who have disabilities.
