  • Koniag Stock Will Program

    The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) provides that Native corporation stock is not required to go through probate in the court system. Koniag can work directly with the family members to help determine the proper heirs of the stock in accordance with any valid will the Shareholder may have that is applicable to the stock, or, if a will does not exist, under Alaska Statutes. Family members should contact Koniag immediately when a Shareholder passes on. There are three documents needed before we can begin processing a Shareholder’s estate: 1. a copy of the death certificate; 2. a copy of the will, if a will exists, (In many cases Koniag may already have a will on file if the Shareholder has completed a Koniag Will Form). If unable to locate a will then a questionnaire must be completed; 3. and the original stock certificate must be returned. If unable to locate the original, then a signed Affidavit for Lost or Stolen Estate Certificate signed before a Notary Public will be required. Shareholders are encouraged to complete a will that provides for disposition of the Koniag stock as intended by the Shareholder. The Koniag Shareholder Services Department has a Stock Will Form available to use to separately bequeath your Koniag stock. You can also bequeath your Koniag stock in a general will that includes language addressing who you are leaving the stock to. Download: Koniag Stock Will Form
