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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

Deposit of funds by administrator.
(a) Except as otherwise provided in this Section, the administrator shall deposit in the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund all funds received under this Act, including proceeds from the sale of property under Article 7. The administrator may deposit any amount in the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund into the State Pensions Fund during the fiscal year at his or her discretion; however, he or she shall, on April 15 and October 15 of each year, deposit any amount in the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund exceeding $2,500,000 into the State Pensions Fund. If on either April 15 or October 15, the administrator determines that a balance of $2,500,000 is insufficient for the prompt payment of unclaimed property claims authorized under this Act, the administrator may retain more than $2,500,000 in the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund in order to ensure the prompt payment of claims. Beginning in State fiscal year 2023, all amounts that are deposited into the State Pensions Fund from the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund shall be apportioned to the designated retirement systems as provided in subsection (c-6) of Section 8.12 of the State Finance Act to reduce their actuarial reserve deficiencies.
(b) The administrator shall make prompt payment of claims he or she duly allows as provided for in this Act from the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund. This shall constitute an irrevocable and continuing appropriation of all amounts in the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund necessary to make prompt payment of claims duly allowed by the administrator pursuant to this Act.
