If a check issued to a shareholder is lost or stolen, the shareholder can submit a Lost Check Indemnity Agreementto stop payment and have a new check reissued.
Shareholder checks are valid for 60 days before they become void and must be reissued.
The earliest a stop payment will be issued on a check is 30 days after the issue date.
Proxy Voting Incentive checks will only be reissued for one year; however, shareholder dividend distribution checks can be reissued for an indefinite period of time. Proxy payments that are not claimed within that time are forfeited to the corporation.
It takes approximately 5‐10 business days for a check to be processed and reissued.
Goldbelt must pay a fee for every stop payment and reissued check. Therefore, the corporation will reissue a dividend or incentive check once per payment at no charge to the shareholder. Subsequent reissuances of the same payment will incur a $25.00 fee per charge.
Lost Check Indemnity Agreements must be completed, signed, dated, and notarized before submission.
Goldbelt will not accept Lost Check Indemnity Agreements that are incomplete, from relatives of the shareholder, or submissions via phone.
Power of Attorney, legal guardian, and custodian of a minor may authorize a Lost Check Indemnity Agreement via the same methods stated above.
Shareholders are encouraged to sign‐up for Direct Deposit in order to ensure all monies are received.
