Relatives of Deceased

  • Only the relatives (biological or legally adopted) of the deceased shareholder can complete the ROD; although, it is highly recommended that direct beneficiaries of the deceased shareholder complete the ROD.
  • On a case‐by‐case basis where no decedents can be located, Goldbelt may allow friends or a legal representative of the deceased shareholder to complete the ROD.
  • The Relatives of Deceased must be completed as thoroughly and accurately as possible; failure to disclose accurate family members and relatives may cause estate transfer to become null and void.
  • The ROD is a legal document that must be signed and notarized by a Notary Public prior to acceptance from Goldbelt. Forms that are not properly notarized will be returned.
  • Once the ROD has been validated, Goldbelt will create an Affidavit of Entitlement to be mailed to the beneficiaries; it must be returned with the other necessary documents to complete enrollment.
