What's an affidavit of lost stock certificate?

It happens. Sometimes, stock certificates get lost or are accidentally damaged. But don’t worry. Whether you plan to keep, sell, or transfer your stock, you can recover the physical certificates. The company or transfer agent will replace them, but first, they will require you to provide a verified, sworn statement known as an affidavit of lost stock certificate.

Here's the information you'll need to have handy to complete your affidavit of lost stock certificate:
- Who it's coming from : Know for whom this document is being signed and where.
- Circumstances : Be able to describe how the stock certificates were lost or destroyed.
- Stock information : Have the company's name handy and the par value and type of stock certificates being discussed.
