Minors (under age 18) who are not currently enrolled in Goldbelt and have been notified that they are to receive shares via gifting or inheritance, are required to have a legal guardian or custodian complete an Enrollment Packet and provide required supporting documentation before any shares can be transferred to them by the Corporate Registrar. The packet includes:
Part A: Shareholder Information
You must include a copy of the minor’s birth certificate and, if applicable, proof of Alaska Native blood quantum for transfer to be processed.
Part B: Direct Deposit
Please attach a Voided Check or Deposit Slip, if possible, to verify the account information. You may also submit a letter from the minor’s bank that includes the account number, bank’s routing number, and type of account (checking or savings). Please note: minor’s name must be listed on the account for banking institution to accept Direct Deposit.
Part C: Shareholder ID
You must include a photo of the minor to receive a shareholder ID. Pictures can be sent via mail, email,or taken at the corporate office. The headshot must be recent (taken within the past three years), clear, and forward‐facing.
Part D: Ancestral Trust Eligibility
Please complete the family tree to the best of your abilities. This section is used to determine if the minor is an eligible beneficiary of the Goldbelt Ancestral Trust. Additional documentation, including birth certificates for proof of relationship, may be necessary to establish eligibility.
Part E: Custodian Designation Form
A parent, legal guardian, or the shareholder who is gifting stock must be appointed as a custodian of the shares, since the recipient is less than 18 years of age.
Once enrollment is completed and information verified, the Corporate Registrar will complete the transfer and issue a Stock Certificate to the minor shareholder which will also list the custodian/guardian's name. When minor reaches age 18 (i.e. Age of Majority), the custodian/guardian will be removed from their record and they will be issued a new stock certificate in their own name.
