Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (765 ILCS 1026/15-607)
    Sec. 15-607. Crediting income or gain to owner's account.
    (a) If property other than money is delivered to the administrator, the owner is entitled to receive from the administrator income or gain realized or accrued on the property before the property is sold.
    (b) Before August 22, 2017, interest on money is not payable to an owner for periods where the property is in the possession of the administrator.
    (c) Beginning on August 22, 2017, the administrator shall pay interest to the owner of property in the form of money at the greater of: (i) the percentage increase, if any, in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers for all items published by the United States Department of Labor (CPI-U); or (ii) the actual rate of return the State Treasurer earned on the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund. Interest begins to accrue when property in the form of money is delivered to the administrator or when the administrator converts property to money pursuant to Article 7 and ends on the earlier of the expiration of 10 years after the property begins to accrue interest or the date on which payment is made to the owner. The administrator may establish by administrative rule more detailed methodologies for calculating the amount of interest to be paid to an owner under this Section.
    (d) When paying interest to an owner pursuant to subsection (c), the administrator shall charge a one-time administrative fee of $5, deductible only from interest.
