Once your shares are settled in Vanguard, you can request the transfer through an online form (it was previously done by calling the Onboarding line on 1-855-730-0325).
Log in to your Vanguard account online, and navigate to the document icon next to your account icon in the top right of the screen.
Click on "Forms & applications".
Expand “Add or remove money, trade within your account”.
Expand “Sell shares of an existing account (includes retirement distributions and nonretirement withdrawals)”.
The 3rd form in the list will be the "Outgoing DRS Transfer Form".
Selecting the form will take you to a "Consent to Electronic Delivery" page.
After accepting, it takes you directly to the form.
You will need to provide following information:
Your Vanguard account number, full name, phone number.
The stock (GameStop), its ticker (GME), and its CUSIP (36467W109).
How many shares you want to transfer.
The Transfer Agent's name, DTC number, and address. In GameStop's case that's: Computershare US. DTC# 7807. Computershare Trust Company, N.A., P.O. Box 505005, Louisville, KY 40233-5005.
Optional: If you want the shares ordered in Last In First Out (newest shares transferred first), or First In First Out (oldest shares transferred first).
After you submit the form you will be taken to a DocuSign page to confirm the transfer.
Once you have signed and confirmed, the request will officially be submitted.
The transfer will take 7-10 business days to process.
If you don't have an existing Computershare account:
The broker and Computershare will take care of the transfer and open a Computershare account for you. This will take another 2-3 business days.
If you have an existing Computershare account:
Your broker will transfer the shares based on your name and address. As a result, a second account may be created for you. This can be for a few reasons, such as a middle initial existing on one account, but not the other. If your name and address match exactly, then the transfer will process within the normal amount of time. If not, then it will take another 2-3 business days.
Your broker may ask you for a Computershare account number. For security reasons we do not recommend giving this information to your broker. With Computershare accounts, the account number is the "key" that allows brokers to authorize a transfer of shares out of the DRS and back to the broker.
After your shares leave your broker:
Go to Computershare.com/us.
Click on “Login to Investor Center”.
Click on “Register Now”.
Answer security questions such as Social Security number, ZIP Code, name of the stock that you hold (GameStop).
Computershare will then prompt you to create your username, password and security questions.
Once your account is created, Computershare will send you a verification letter in the mail.
You can wait 3-5 business days for the verification letter, or you can verify your identity immediately online.
To verify online, Computershare will ask some security questions based on info they take from LexisNexis. Please note, part of the process is to give a question with zero correct answers. So read the questions carefully.
When you receive the verification code letter:
Return to Computershare.com/us.
Click on “Login to Investor Center”.
Login using the username, and password you have created.
Then you can enter the verification code.
You now have full access to your Computershare account!
There is no more need for the verification code.
We recommend you now activate your two-step verification (2FA) to improve your account security. You can set this up by going to: "My Profile", then "Account Security Preferences".
