ALTON, Ill. – To help reconnect residents with lost or forgotten property, state Rep. Monica Bristow, D-Godfrey, will be partnering with the Illinois State Treasurer’s office to host an I-Cash event.
“Almost once a month, my office has partnered with the Illinois State Treasurer’s office to help reconnect RiverBend residents with their property,” said Bristow. “This free program does a quick and easy search of lost or unclaimed property that is now being held by the state, and helps reconnect it with the rightful owner.”
Bristow will be hosting the I-Cash on Monday, June 18, from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. at 1 Regency Parkway in Pontoon Beach. A representative from the Illinois State Treasurer’s office along with Bristow’s office will assist those who attend in finding any unclaimed property in their name. The State Treasurer’s office is continuously trying to connect individuals with their rightfully owned property since the program was established in the early 1960s.
“This unclaimed property could be an uncashed paycheck, security deposit or tax return that has been forgotten about,” said Bristow. “Since the creation of this program, millions of dollars in property or cash have been returned to the rightful owners, and I would encourage everyone to come by for a quick search to see if any property might belong to them or a family member.”
For more information, please call Rep. Bristow’s constituent service office at 618-465-5900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
