Please Note: By purchasing your first share through FirstShare.com, you will be automatically enrolled in the DRiP plans of your choice. Therefore, the following steps will not need to be taken by you.
Once you have purchased your first share and have completed the transfer process to register the share in your name, it's time to establish your DRIP account. For this step you will need to contact the company's transfer agent, either by mail, phone or by visiting the transfer agent's website. Our company profile pages display the mailing address and phone number for each company's transfer agent. Most users, however, will find it easier to sign up for the company's DRIP plan through the transfer agent's website. Below are the website links for the four largest transfer agents.
American Stock Transfer & Trust Company
Some companies, such as The Walt Disney Company, act as their own transfer agents and you'll need to visit that company's website directly to establish a DRIP account.
