What do I do if I misplaced or lost my Ford Stock certificate?

Stock certificates are negotiable documents. They should always be kept in a secure place such as a safe deposit box or vault.

Computershare Trust Company, N.A. offers free safekeeping for Ford Motor Company common stock certificates.

If you have lost one or more of your stock certificates, contact Computershare, our shareholder services and transfer agent, for replacement instructions. In response to your request, Computershare will provide you with an Affidavit of Loss and Indemnity Agreement, which you must complete and return.

In most cases, you must pay a replacement fee of $50 and a surety bond fee of 3% of the market value of the shares represented by the lost certificates on the date you reported the loss to Computershare. For this reason, you are encouraged to ensure the misplacement of your certificates before reporting them lost.

Computershare is ready to assist you with all your Ford Motor Company certificate needs.

What is the difference between a shareholder of record and a "street name" holder?

If your shares are registered directly in your name with Computershare Trust Company, N.A., the Company’s stock transfer agent, you are considered the shareholder of record with respect to those shares.

If your shares are held in a stock brokerage account or by a bank or other nominee, you are considered the beneficial owner of these shares, and your shares are held in “street name.”

How do I know if I received all of my dividend/distribution checks?

If you've lost a dividend/distribution check or would like to make sure you've received and cashed all of your dividend/distribution checks, contact Computershare Trust Company, N.A. for a status of your account. When making your request for a replacement check, be aware that the original check will become voided immediately upon the issuance of the replacement check. Therefore, if you find the original check the next day, do not attempt to cash it or deposit it as it will not be honored, and you may incur a "returned check" fee charged by your bank.

What documents do I need for tax reporting?

Shareholders "of record" on Ford Motor Company's registered shareholder list will receive tax reporting information from Computershare Trust Company, N.A. Each shareholder should consult a tax advisor to determine the correct tax liability each year. Below are some facts, to keep in mind, when completing your tax forms: Each shareholder, with shares in a brokerage or trust company account, will receive their tax reporting information from the account custodian. If changes are needed in withholding or tax reporting, the account custodian must be notified.

Computershare prepares and mails United States Internal Revenue Service Forms 1099DIV, and 1042S, annually, before January 31, covering activity for the preceding tax year. Generally the Form 1099DIV is attached to the fourth quarter dividend check or Dividend Investment and Stock Purchase Plan statement; the 1042S's are mailed separately. If you sold any of your Ford Motor Company common shares between January and the end of December, you will receive a 1099B for the proceeds you received on or before February 15th.

U.S. shareholders, not wanting tax withheld from their dividends or sales, should file a United States Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 with Computershare.

Shareholders outside the U.S. should file a United States Internal Revenue Service Form W-8 with Computershare to make sure their withholding is calculated at the correct rate.
