The Treasurer of the State of Illinois is the chief financial officer of the government of Illinois. The current officeholder is Dan Rutherford.

The treasurer is responsible for maintaining the state funds and acting as the state's bank. The main duty performed by this office is investing the state money collected and distributing it as needed. The office also offers programs to help state citizens with their own financial well being such as classes to help manage money. A college savings program is also run by the office to help students in need as well as keeping track and returning unclaimed property.

A 2012 ballot measure, the Illinois Treasurer and Comptroller Amendment, may offer voters the chance to permanently merge the offices of treasurer and comptroller. Both Treasurer Dan Rutherford and Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka support the proposal, arguing consolidation of the offices will "improve efficiency, save on personnel and office costs and deliver ... more timely state investments."
