Alaska law provides that the Ounalashka Corporation’s stock is subject to special probate or estate settlement procedures. OC is required to determine the proper heirs of OC stock in accordance with any valid will the shareholder may have executed that is applicable to the stock, or — if no such will exists — under Alaska laws on intestate succession.

A copy of a shareholder’s will, which includes provision for his or her OC stock, should be on file with the OC Shareholder Affairs Department.

OC has a simple will form available that applies only to OC stock. Alternatively, disposition of OC stock can be effected through the provisions of a general will by including language specifically disposing of the stock. A shareholder may wish to consult an attorney regarding an appropriate will for individual circumstances. Please contact the OC Shareholder Affairs Department with questions.

The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) permits ANCSA stock to be transferred as a gift from a holder to siblings or lineal descendants (child, grandchild, great-grandchild, niece, nephew) if the holder has reached the age of majority (18). The recipient of shares transferred by such a gift must be a Native or a descendant of a Native who is related to the gift or by blood or adoption and not simply by marriage.

If under 18 years of age, Alaska law requires that shareholders who receive stock in a Native Corporation must have their stock issued to a custodian. Information concerning the gifting and custodian processes are available at the OC Shareholder Affairs Department.

Direct lineal descendants (e.g., the children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, etc.) of voting OC shareholders must register their information with OC. Descendants who are already OC shareholders do not need to enroll.

The information submitted through the registration process is being collected to:

– improve communications with descendants who may become OC shareholders in the future through gifting or inheritance

– provide information on potential opportunities and activities

– aid the Edna P. McCurdy Foundation in establishing proof of eligibility for scholarships

Please note that the Edna P. McCurdy Foundation now requires descendants who are not currently a shareholder of OC to register as a descendant to apply for funding. The process aids the foundation in the administration of its programs by allowing it to access and use submitted documents for eligibility purposes.

With each successive generation, it is becoming more challenging to document a descendant’s relationship to an original shareholder. Collecting the information now makes the application process easier for both current and future generations. To encourage descendants to maintain updated contact information, quarterly prize drawings are conducted from the names of all confirmed descendants.

Your completed application (download form) with required documents should be returned to:

A stop-payment may be placed on an outstanding OC dividend check after a minimum of 14 days have passed from the date the check was issued.
