Bond Requirements and Online Application

Texas Lost Stock Certificate Surety BondIf you lose your stock certificate, don’t worry—for the majority of stocks, you still own your shares even without the paper certificate, however you may be required to provide a Texas Lost Stock Certificate Surety Bond.

Follow the steps below to get your certificate replaced.

How to Replace a Lost Stock Certificate in Texas

1. Notify the Transfer Agent

First, you must notify the transfer agent of the loss. The transfer agent will place a “stop transfer” on the certificate. This is to prevent others from cashing it in. The transfer agent or the broker-dealer will then notify the SEC of the lost or missing certificates.

2. Apply for a Texas Lost Stock Certificate Bond

To replace your lost stock certificate, a “lost instrument bond” for a stock certificate is required by the issuing company. This bond is a third-party guarantee against financial loss for the company. Learn more about what the bond does and why it’s required. This particular surety bond is referred to as an “Open Penalty Lost Instrument bond”. This means the penalty of the bond is based on the value of the stock. If the value of the stock that was lost goes up, the bond amount automatically increases with it. There is no additional premium required if this happens.

How do I know what the bond amount is?

While the bond is “Open Penalty“, the bond amount, the amount used to calculate the premium to be paid, is the value of the lost stock on the day the transfer agent issued the stop on the shares.
