What to do with a Share Certificate?
a few years back We were all laid off from an unnamed company, I had some shares in the company thru payroll deductions, which equaled to about 100 shares or so, I had the option to cash them out, or keep them. I chose to keep the shares, tho everyone I worked with decided to cash them out and get a pay day. Anyways they sent me some kind of share certificate that shows I own so and so many shares bla bla bla, I started getting cheques in the mail for dividend payments every few months. I said wait a sec, and called up the trustee who was sending me the shares, they said that I can opt to re-invest the dividends into a DRIP plan, basically divident reinvestment plan and the dividends will go toward buying shares. So now I own a different amount of shares than the certificate states, so what do I do? my friend said to take it to a bank, the banker said they only deal with personal accounts and I need to see a broker? some advice plz?
