Missing Entitlements?

Some of our shareholders/policyholders may have become lost and have not claimed benefits or assets to which they may be entitled. Manulife is actively looking for these individuals. If you think you may be entitled to unclaimed dividend cheques, dormant share accounts, or demutualization benefits (including common shares of Manulife Financial Corporation and associated dividends) that were issued to policyholders when The Manufacturers Life Insurance Company converted to a publicly traded company,  please contact Manulife’s transfer agent, AST Trust Company (Canada), at 1-800-783-9495 or the Shareholder Services Department at Manulife via email at shareholder_services@manulife.com or by phone at 1-800-795-9767, ext 221022.

Uncashed Dividends and Dormant Share Accounts


Manulife Financial Corporation (“MFC”) is working with Keane to reunite Canadian shareholders with their uncashed dividend cheques or dormant share accounts.
