computershare recently took over the DRIP program for Microsoft.

When they took over out account (which has three names on it), they changed the registration from Joint Tenants With Rights of Surviorship (JT WROS) to JT TEN.

Now, some states consider these registrations to be the same...but not all. Since the three names on the account live in three different states, I called computershare and asked them to change it back to JT WROS. That was a week or two ago.

They just called this morning, and said they were not going to make the change because there is no difference in the registration.

So I just called investor relations at microsoft and left them a message. Hopefully this will get squared away quickly.
