Sente Helping Connect Residents with Unclaimed Property


VERNON HILLS, Ill. – In an effort to reunite constituents with their lost or unclaimed property, State Rep. Carol Sente, D-Vernon Hills, is holding an I-Cash Workshop with the Office of the Illinois State Treasurer on Monday, May 11 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Aspen Drive Library, located at 701 Aspen Drive in Vernon Hills.

“Lost assets can include anything from old paychecks to safety deposit box contents that have been forgotten about throughout someone's life,” Sente said. “These events are exciting for everyone involved, as unclaimed property is much more common than people expect.”

The Treasurer’s Office is working to connect about $2.1 billion in unclaimed assets with their rightful owners. During Sente’s event, representatives from the State Treasurer’s Office will be available to help residents search for unclaimed property on the I-Cash database and fill out the necessary paperwork to retrieve it. Sente and staff will also be in attendance during the event to answer questions about state services and gather feedback on legislative issues.

“As State Representative, one of my top priorities is to make state government as convenient and effective as possible for residents,” Sente said. “This event will provide constituents with an opportunity to share their thoughts on important state issues, while simultaneously searching for lost or unclaimed property that may belong to themselves or a family member.”
