What do I do if I lose my stock certificate?

Lost stock certificates are costly and inconvenient. If a certificate is lost, stolen or destroyed, notify our Transfer Agent, EQ Shareowner Services, immediately so that a 'stop transfer' instruction can be placed on our records to prevent transfer of ownership to another person. EQ Shareowner Services will send the shareholder the forms to permit the issuance of a replacement certificate. In order to replace a shareholder's certificates, we are required by law to post a surety bond at the shareholder's expense to protect all concerned against the possibility that the lost certificates might return to circulation. The cost may vary; currently it is based on 4 percent of the market value of the lost shares. It is important to safeguard certificates against loss. As an additional precaution and for shareholders' tax records, shareholders should keep a separate record of each stock certificate showing its certificate number, the number of shares, the total cost or value when purchased and the date acquired.
