Acquisitions & Splits
Some UnitedHealth Group shareholders were shareholders in predecessor companies that UnitedHealth Group acquired in tax-free stock-for-stock exchange transactions. In these cases, the shareholder's cost basis in the predecessor company generally carries forward to their UnitedHealth Group shares. We have provided stock exchange ratio information to assist in the calculation of cost basis for these situations. For questions relating to tax issues, please consult a professional tax adviser.
Electronic Delivery of Shareholder Materials
UnitedHealth Group, through Broadridge Financial Solutions, offers electronic delivery of company annual reports, proxy statements and proxy ballots, allowing shareholders to vote their proxies online.
By consenting to electronic delivery, shareholders agree to receive UnitedHealth Group annual shareholder meeting materials over the internet. Shareholders may vote via the internet whether or not they consent to receive annual meeting materials online.
How It Works
Approximately four weeks prior to our annual shareholder meeting, shareholders who elect electronic delivery will receive an email with links to the annual meeting materials (annual report, notice of annual meeting and proxy statement, and proxy/voting instructions). This email will include instructions for voting online.
Shareholders may change or revoke their consent to electronic delivery of UnitedHealth Group annual shareholder meeting materials at any time by visiting the election site.
Please note that UnitedHealth Group is not responsible for any charges shareholders may incur from their personal internet service provider and/or telephone company for electronic delivery of shareholder materials.

How to Register for Electronic Delivery
You may sign up at any time for electronic receipt of future shareholder materials.
- Registered Shareholders and Company Plan Participants
You are a "registered shareholder" if you have a personal account with the company's transfer agent, Equiniti Trust Company, or you have actual stock certificates. You are a "plan participant" if you own shares in the company's 401(k), or Employee Stock Purchase Plan. Registered shareholders and plan participants can click here to receive materials online, or to change or opt out of electronic delivery.
- Beneficial Shareholders
If your UnitedHealth Group stock is held in an account in your name with a brokerage firm (for example, T. Rowe Price), bank trustee or other agent, you are a "beneficial shareholder." In this case, your proxy materials are delivered to your broker, bank, or other nominee, who then delivers them to you. UnitedHealth Group and its transfer agent do not have records for beneficial shareholders of our stock. However, if your brokerage firm and/or bank offers electronic delivery of proxy materials, beneficial shareholders may sign up here for electronic delivery of these documents. This link may also be used to change or opt out of electronic delivery.
- UnitedHealth Group Employees
Some UnitedHealth Group shareholders may be both registered AND beneficial shareholders. These employee shareholders should enroll for electronic delivery of proxy materials BOTH as registered shareholders and as beneficial shareholders. UnitedHealth Group employee shareholders may receive their proxy materials online automatically and may use the company's email and the internet to vote their proxy ballots online.
