Ahtna Shareholder Services wants to remind all shareholders how important it is to keep their contact information up to date.

“We can’t help you, if we can’t find you,” said Eileen Ewan, Manager of Ahtna’s Shareholder Services. “Keeping your contact information current means annual dividends are delivered as soon as possible and shareholders are informed about other important services.” Shareholder Services publishes monthly updates on Facebook of shareholders with invalid addresses.

Shareholders are also encouraged to use direct deposit, the fastest and most reliable method to receive dividends. By choosing direct deposit, shareholders receive funds a week or more earlier than by mailed check. Risk of lost or stolen checks is also eliminated (there is a 90-day wait for lost check reissues), and signing up is easy and convenient. Direct deposit forms can be found on the Ahtna website at

When a shareholder reaches the age of 18, their bank information is automatically removed. If you have reached the age of 18 since the last dividend distribution, please apply for direct deposit.

Ewan also reminds graduating high school seniors to provide a copy of their diploma to Shareholder Services. If you were enrolled as a Class L shareholder as a child, you will receive an additional 70 Class L shares when you turn 18 and graduate from high school. Without a high school diploma or equivalent, you have to wait until you turn 21 to receive your additional 70 Class L shares.

Diplomas can be scanned and emailed to or copied and mailed to Ahtna Shareholder Services, PO Box 649, Glennallen, AK 99588

IMPORTANT: Even if you submitted your diploma for the graduate gift process, you need to also submit it to Shareholder Services to be issued your additional Class L shares.

For more information about updating contact information, or the services and benefits available to shareholders, please call the Shareholder Services Glennallen office at (907) 822-3476.


All shareholders signed up for direct deposit as of November 4, 2024, will be entered into a drawing for cash prizes: (3) $200, (1) $300 and (1) $500!
