How do I deposit stock certificates into my ShareBuilder account?

We can deposit your stock certificate into your account for you as long as the stock trades on one of the National Securities Exchanges: NYSE, NASDAQ and NYSE MKT LLC (as seen next to the stock’s symbol on a detailed quote page). Here’s how to get the process started for each different stock certificate you have:

  1. Complete the Irrevocable Stock Power form (must be notarized or Medallion Signature Guaranteed)
  2. Include a Letter of Authorization form if you’re changing the ownership of the stock certificate from Individual to Joint (just needs one signature) or Joint to Individual (needs the signatures of both of the certificate’s owners)
  3. Mail form(s) and stock certificate to:

    Capital One ShareBuilder, Inc.
    ATTN: Deposit Stock Certificates
    PO Box 4249
    Seattle, WA 98194-0249

Tip: To process your deposit, please do not fill out or sign the back of the stock certificate. It’s also a good idea to make a photocopy of the certificate for your own records as we can’t return the original you send us.
