Prevent your State from claiming Your Stock!

 

Your account may be falling into a “dormant” account status either because your address is no longer valid; you have not cashed a dividend or sale check; or because of inactivity in your account. As a result, your stock may be at risk of being reported to your state as unclaimed property. If you are at risk, you will receive a “Due Diligence” letter from our transfer agent, Broadridge Corporate Issuer Solutions, with instructions on how to update your Date of Last Contact. Please follow the instructions carefully to prevent your State's claim to your Unclaimed Property.

Stock and Dividend Plans

Dividend Reinvest Plans (DRIP) and Direct Stock Purchase Plans (DSPP) are plans provided on behalf of corporations to simplify investment activity. DSPPs offer investors the opportunity to buy shares directly from the corporation, via the transfer agent, often without involving a broker. Some plans do require that investors own a minimum number of shares prior to participating in a plan. The costs associated with DSPPs may be higher or lower than the costs of using a broker.

DRIPs offer shareholders the convenience of reinvesting dividends, minimizing the expense and effort associated with dividend checks.

Note that all shares held in a plan will be in DRS (book-entry) form. Certificates will not be issued for shares held in a plan.

Ownership Types

What is a "registered" shareholder?

A registered shareholder is the owner of record on the books of the corporation, generally kept by the transfer agent. The registered shareholder may be an individual, a trust, a broker, etc. Registered shareholders receive dividends, proxies and other communications directly from the corporation via the transfer agent or the corporation directly.

 

What are "street name shares" or "beneficial shares"?

Securities held in a brokerage account, and registered in the name of the broker or other institution, are referred to as being in "street name" or "beneficial shares." If you keep your stock with your broker in a broker account, you are a "street name" holder and are not directly registered on the company's records as maintained by the transfer agent. Company mailings, including dividends, will reach you through your broker. If you wish to move your shares from registered to beneficial ownership, Broadridge or your broker will help you do so.

 

What are the more common types of security registrations?

Individual Registration
This registration gives sole ownership to the single individual and requires that the person's legal name be used. The use of a first name is desirable. Example: Mary Smith is preferred instead of M Smith.
Joint Registration
Several types of Joint Registration exist including Joint Tenants with right of survivorship, Tenants by the Entirety and Tenants in common.
Joint Tenants with Rights of Survivorship
This registration is used when two or more individuals have equal claim to the shares. Should one of the parties die, ownership of the shares passes to the surviving tenant(s). Example: Mary Smith & Barbara Smith Jt Ten
Tenants In Common
This registration allows an appropriate portion of the shares to pass to the estate of the holder upon the holder's death rather than to the surviving tenant. Example: Mary Smith & Barbara Smith Ten Com
Custodial Registration
There are several custodial registrations possible. A custodial registration requires the names of the custodian and the beneficial owner. A custodial registration for a minor is a common form of this registration type. For example: Mary Smith Cust Don Smith NY Unif Trans Min Act.
Trust Registration
Registering shares in the name of a Trust requires that specific information be provided: the name of the trust and/or the maker or beneficiary and the date of the trust instrument. For example: Mary Jones Tr U/A dtd 4/15/98 The Mary Jones Trust FBO Mary Jones.

Ownership Questions

How do I transfer my stock and retain as registered shares?

If you hold certificates that you wish to transfer, please follow the steps below:

  1. Confirm that Broadridge is the transfer agent - our name will usually appear on the certificate
  2. Mail your certificates to Broadridge at the address below with a completed Legal Transfer Form which can be downloaded at the right:

        Broadridge Corporate Issuer Solutions
        P.O. Box 1342
        Brentwood, NY 11717

  3. The Legal Transfer Form must be appropriately signed by all registered holders, exactly as the name(s) appear on the face of the certificate(s) or must be accompanied by a stock power bearing the appropriate signature(s).
  4. The signature(s) must be guaranteed by a financial institution participating in an officially recognized Medallion Signature Guarantee Program (see below). Note that this is different from having your signature notarized.
  5. Include any additional instructions indicating how you wish the shares to be transferred. These instructions should provide the name, address and Social Security Number for each transferee and should indicate the number of shares to be transferred. In some cases additional documents will be required to complete the transfer. Please refer to page two of the Legal Transfer Form for additional document requirements based on your stock transferring situation.

 

If you hold shares in DRS Book-Entry (no certificate), please follow the steps below:

  1. Confirm that Broadridge is the transfer agent - our name will usually appear on your account statement.
  2. Please send us a letter of instruction signed by all registered owners stating your intent to transfer.
  3. The letter of instruction must be accompanied by a Legal Transfer Form bearing the appropriate signature(s).

How do I transfer registered shares to beneficial or street shares via my broker?

  1. Contact your broker directly
  2. Your broker will ask for some basic information about your account, including:
    1. The issuer of the shares
    2. The transfer agent name (Broadridge)
    3. Your account number (obtain from your statement or online account)
    4. The number of shares you wish to transfer
    5. Whether you hold your shares in DRS (book-entry) or certificate form
  3. The broker will then have the shares transferred from Broadridge to your brokerage account

 

How should shares for transfer be mailed to Broadridge?

We recommend that all certificates be sent by registered mail, return receipt requested. It is suggested that the shipment be insured for 2% of the current value of the shares. In the event of loss, a surety bond of 2% will be required to replace the certificates. A surety bond is typically obtained by paying a premium to the surety company equal to 2% of the current value of the shares being replaced.

 

How do I obtain a surety bond?

You may obtain a surety bond from our independent insurance provider, The Chubb Corporation. Once you notify us of your certificate loss, we will initiate the process for you and then ask that you finalize the paperwork and submit the appropriate payment for processing.

 

What is a medallion signature guarantee?

The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) entitles transfer agents and corporate issuers to receive signature guarantees to protect them against fraudulent and unauthorized transfers. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations define the financial institutions that are eligible to provide such signature guarantees, e.g., commercial banks, brokers, credit unions, savings and loan institution. Signature Guarantee Programs have been developed and eligible financial institutions which subscribe to such programs are issued "Medallion Guarantee Stamps". Transfer agents are obligated to ensure that such stamps appear on the transfer documents and are entitled to refuse a transfer of shares if a signature is not guaranteed with a stamp. A notary stamp is not acceptable when transferring the ownership of stock.

 

How can I sell my shares that are held in certificate form?

Broadridge can support the sale of your shares if they are held in DRS (no certificates) as part of a Dividend Reinvest Plan (DRIP), Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP) or Direct Stock Purchase Plan (DSPP). Your corporation you own stock in may also support a stock sale plan. If the stock issuer supports these stock options, you may deposit your certificated share(s) into the DRS Book Entry form or Plan form in order to sell through Broadridge. Otherwise, if your shares are not part of such plans, you must take your certificate(s) to a securities broker to sell the shares. There are many options when it comes to securities brokers, so make sure you are choosing one that will best suit your needs. To sell shares that are held in a plan, please refer to the FAQ section on "Stock and Dividend Plans."

Unclaimed Property

Dormant Accounts and Unclaimed Property Laws

Why is my account considered dormant?

Under unclaimed or abandoned property statutes, states may consider investor accounts dormant where there is an absence of documented, owner-generated contact or when multiple attempts to contact the investor have resulted in returned mail. These rules apply within a defined period of time: typically 3 or 5 years and if there is no owner-initiated contact, the shareholder’s stock is considered “dormant”. In accordance with individual state unclaimed or abandoned property laws, due diligence letters are mailed out to shareholders to alert them that their accounts are at risk of becoming “dormant”.

What is “escheatment”?

Escheatment is the term used to describe the end result of unclaimed property compliance.  It is the annual process of complying with state law whereby the state gains custody of assets meeting certain criteria for presumptive abandonment.  The state holds the assets, or their cash equivalent, until such time as they are claimed by the owner or legal claimant. To claim proceeds from abandoned property, the investor must directly contact the state. Links to individual state unclaimed property programs may be found by visiting www.unclaimed.org. Your account will be escheated to your last known resident state or to the company's state of incorporation if you are a foreign owner who resides outside the United States.

Can the State take my shares if I hold a certificate?

Yes, your stock and any un-cashed checks in your account are reported to the state if the account is not kept up-to-date.  Such reporting causes outstanding certificates in your possession to be cancelled and re-issued in the name of the State.

How can I avoid escheatment of my property now that I have received a Due Diligence Letter?

You can update your account by contacting Broadridge Corporate Issuer Solutions, the transfer agent, by responding to the due diligence and by logging in via the Log In button at the top of the page or on investor.broadridge.com to authenticate your identity and demonstrate your control over your account. Additionally, you can contact us via mail or by contacting a client service representative by calling the company specific number found here.

How can I avoid having an account which is considered dormant?

Please note that participation in the Dividend Reinvestment Plan is considered passive investing because dividends are automatically invested and not at the request of the shareholder. Such participation alone will not prevent your account from falling dormant in the future.

As a shareholder, continue to make periodic contact with Broadridge to keep your date of last contact current. This can be accomplished in a number of ways:

- Log in to your online profile via the Log In button at the top of the page or on investor.broadridge.com and review past transactions, download tax information, or update your account information.

- Log on to the Interactive Voice Response System (IVR) to check account updates. The company specific number can be found here.

- Vote your proxy or be sure to cash a dividend payment.
