Circumstances requiring a guaranteed signature
When redeeming shares, your signature must be guaranteed (which is different than a notarization by a notary public) if any of the following circumstances apply:
- The redemption amount is more than $125,000.
- The redemption check is made payable to someone other than the registered shareholder(s).
- The redemption check is being sent to an address other than the address which has been on the account for at least 10 days.
You can have your signature guaranteed by a bank, savings association, credit union or member firm of the National Association of Securities Dealers that is an eligible guarantor institution.
