According to a recent press release from Illinois e-News, Illinois State Treasurer, Michael Frerichs, will seek to reunite Charleston Residents with unclaimed property. Michael Frerichs’ staff will be in attendance at Eastern Illinois University Thursday, March 9th to help reunite citizens with unclaimed property through the I-cash program. The event will be held from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at EIU.
Frerichs’ staff frequently visits areas throughout the state to encourage individuals to search the I-Cash database for unclaimed property, and to show the public that the program is legitimate and not a scam. The Treasurer’s office never charges money to reclaim cash or property.
Frerichs’ says quote: “For most people, it is difficult to believe that they might have overlooked an investment account or forgot to pick up a final paycheck. However, the thousands of names in our database shows that it happens too often. This money belongs to the residents of Illinois. It should be in their bank accounts rather than the state’s safe.”
