All You Need To Know About Getting Your Past And Future Shares Dividends Paid Into Your Bank Account

, , No Comments

This year I decided to stop leaving money on the table, letting my stocks dividends pass me. I had moved from my far-from-everywhere house in Abule-Egba to close-to-everywhere-I-go Gbadaga. But I needed to be sure my shares dividend warrants will get to me and that the ones I have not been receiving (like Total Nigeria PLC and others I can't remember their names) will be (reissued and) paid into my bank account.

So I did the e-Dividend mandate process. In fact, I bought small units of shares in all the companies I have ever considered owning shares in but don't yet own, so that I can do the e-Dividend mandate for them all at once. Later, I learned that I could have saved myself some stress and funds, that once I buy into a new company that is managed by a registrar that already has my details, I should just phone or email them and ask they extend the e-dividend mandate to cover the new/additional company.

Unfortunately, submitting e-dividend mandates didn't fix the problem. Some companies still kept sending me posted dividend warrants while a few started paying directly into my account. In the end, I had to take the following steps to get my dividends consistently paid into my bank account (and reclaim unclaimed dividends):

  1. Do the e-Dividends mandate (you can get the forms directly from this SEC page and below is a comprehensive table of registrars and the companies/securities they service)
  2. Email the registrars about the status of your e-dividend mandate (best to give a week or a month gap between the submission and this email query)
  3. Some will ask for signature specimen; go through your broker to provide them the signature specimen
  4. Some will ask for some additional details from you or that you fill a form and scan back the filled form to them. One even asked me to physically submit a form to their office
And those were the steps I had to go through to permanently fix my unpaid dividend and e-dividend problems.

Below is the list of companies and their respective registrars.
