Think the state of Illinois owes you some money?
Des Plaines residents will have the opportunity to find out and reclaim personal financial assets during I-Cash Day Wednesday, March 27, at the Des Plaines Public Library, 1501 Ellinwood St.
Unclaimed assets may include unpaid wages, overpayments on bills, life insurance policies, and safety deposit box contents.
The library is partnering with state Rep. Marty Moylan, and the Illinois State Treasurer's office to host the event from 4 to 6 p.m. in the main lobby of the library.
"The State Treasurer's Office is holding over $1 billion in unclaimed assets, and most of our community is unaware that a database exists through which they can reclaim their property," said Moylan, a Des Plaines Democrat representing the 55th House District.
Treasurer's office staff will help residents search the online I-Cash database and fill out the necessary paperwork to reclaim assets.
