SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – State Rep. Michelle Mussman, D-Schaumburg, is encouraging area residents to take advantage of the Illinois Secretary of State’s Email Renewal Notices program because e-mail reminders are more reliable, efficient, and economical.
“We all live very busy lives. Between work, family, and every other responsibility we hold, some things just fall through the cracks,” said Mussman. “Unfortunately, if you take too long to renew your license plate registration, this mistake can cost you money. Receiving more than one reminder can be quite a help.”
After submitting your information at https://www.ilsos.gov/greenmail, you will receive several reminder emails – the first a month before your vehicle registration is set to expire, a follow-up a few weeks later if you have not had a chance to renew, and a final reminder if you have allowed your registration to expire.
“An added benefit to signing up for renewal notices online is that the state will spend less taxpayer dollars on paper for printing renewal notices and the postage they require for mailing,” said Mussman. “The state saves money, fewer trees are cut down, and you’re more likely to remember to pay your renewal on time.”
You will need your Registration ID and PIN, which can be found on the paper renewal notice you received the year before. If you don’t have a notice, please call the Secretary of State’s Public Inquiry Division at 800-252-8980.
Mussman serves the 56th District, which includes portions of Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Elk Grove Village, Hanover Park, Roselle, Rolling Meadows, and Palatine.
