CHICAGO – State Rep. Elizabeth “Lisa” Hernandez, D-Cicero, and state Sen. Steven Landek, D-Burbank, hosted a successful community shred day, allowing over 100 local residents to securely shred their documents. Residents were also able to check the Illinois Treasurer’s Office I-Cash database to see if the state had any unclaimed property that belonged to them.
“With identity theft on the rise, I am happy to have been able to provide this valuable service to the community as it’s a great opportunity for residents to safely destroy their personal documents,” Hernandez said. “My annual shred day is one of my favorite events all year because it allows me to meet and talk one-on-one with my constituents while they get help they need.”
Hernandez and Landek partnered up with AT&T to provide a safe way to destroy documents that contain personal information, such as old bank statements, outdated medical records, old tax returns, pay stubs, old bills and credit card offers. Also, an I-Cash representative from the Illinois Treasurer’s Office was on hand to help residents see if the state had any unclaimed property that belonged to them. Common types of unclaimed property include, but are not limited to, uncashed wage and payroll checks, life insurance proceeds and utility deposits.
State Rep. Elizabeth “Lisa” Hernandez is a member of the Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus and represents the 24th District, which includes Cicero, Little Village, Berwyn, Brookfield, Riverside, and Stickney.
