Illinois Treasurer’s office, Tharp bring I-Cash services to Metro East

State Sen. Kris Tharp

In partnership with the Illinois Treasurer’s office, State Senator Kris Tharp is bringing the popular I-Cash services to Metro East residents in Wood River and Caseyville.

“Unclaimed property is commonly intangible and thus more difficult for families to know what is owed to them,” said Tharp (D-Bethalto). “I encourage any Illinois resident to visit an I-Cash event to check if they have any unclaimed property.”

The Treasurer’s office has more than $3.5 billion in unclaimed funds for Illinois residents. Offering families an opportunity to search the database and file a claim, the first event was held on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at the Wood River Library.

A second event will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at the Caseyville Public Library, 419 S. Second St.

A third I-Cash event is scheduled for 12 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27 at Wood River City Hall, 111 N. Wood River Ave.

“It’s worth the few minutes it takes to stop by an event like this,” said Tharp. “You might be pleasantly surprised with the outcome.”

Questions should be directed to Sen. Kris Tharp’s office at (618) 251-9840.

    I think this is wonderful! But I am still curious as to what you plan on doing about Police Brutality as it is here in the area it happened to me which left me blind in my left eye and just learning to walk again with excruciating pain along the way with a complete spine replacement! I wrote our Governor got no response he definitely will not be getting my vote along with my family and I have mentioned it to you in person and emailed you and I don’t get no response my last 2 resort’s is CNN and channel 2 news. I deserve Justice as the officer needs to be dealt with !!! I remember the judge saying to me “ Mrs Wars I’m so sorry what happened to you “ ! Please explain!! Thank you Laura Ward #policebrutalitymustendnoknocknoanncemenentkickedinmydoorandmyhead ! Explain
