The U.S. Tobacco Cooperative Inc. has issued an announcement to “tobacco farmers who delivered tobacco to Flue Cured Tobacco Cooperative Stabilization Corp. in 1967 through and including 1973.”
During those years Stabilization issued certificates of interest in capital reserve to its members who delivered tobacco. U.S. Tobacco Cooperative is offering to redeem those certificates. Growers may not need to have the actual certificates to accept the offer.
Anyone interested in applying to accept the offer, including certificate recipients, heirs, beneficiaries and estate administrators, can find an application form and offer details at tobaccocheck.com or call 877-277-7422 for more information. Interested parties can request an application by mail by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Certificate Redemption, P.O. Box 12300, Raleigh, NC 27605.
The application deadline is Feb. 28.
