Reliance State Bank is not a licensed guarantor.  We can help provide the service of medallion signature guarantee to our customers for the purpose of security transfers through our affiliate, First National Bank of Ames, Iowa. The maximum transaction dollar limit for signature guarantee service is $250,000 per transaction. There is a $40 fee for each guarantee; this fee is necessary due to the complex nature of the paperwork and liability involved in the transaction.

  • Photo identification of authorized signer(s) – driver’s license or passport
  • Proof of Transaction Value & Proof of Ownership – most current statement (mutual fund/broker statement showing # of shares, stock certificate)
  • $40 fee for each guarantee

Documents must be signed in the presence of bank personnel with all owners present. Additional documentation may be requested depending upon the nature of the transaction including certified power of attorney, death certificate, or probate letters of appointment.

Documentation will be copied or original supporting documentation retained depending on the nature of the transfer. First National Bank as the licensed guarantor is required to maintain a file for all guarantees performed.
