How does the executor redeem/re-register an individual account if the owner of a non retirement account is now deceased?

Several documents may be necessary in order to redeem or re-register an account when the account owner is deceased. In most instances, the following documents are required:

  • A certified copy of the Death Certificate which bears a raised seal or a colored stamp.
  • A certified copy of the Letters Testamentary or a formal Court Appointment of Representative document dated within 60 days of the proposed transaction.
  • A completed and signed. Change of Registration Form and a Redemption Authorization Form with a Medallion Signature Guarantee stamp for each executor’s signature.

Questions regarding the death of an owner of a retirement account should be referred to an Investor Representative. If you have any questions regarding the process of redeeming or re-registering an account due to the death of the registered owner, please contact an Investor Representative at 1-800-US-FUNDS (1-800-873-8637).
