I need to change my sons mutual fund account to a joint account

Resolved Question:

I need to change my son's mutual fund account to a joint account with me, his mother. He will be still listed on the account but I will be the primary with my social security number being the number that will be used to report earnings to the Internal Revenue Service. The mutual fund account broker wants us to write a letter that he is relinquishing part of the shares to me or control. What I need is a rough template showing me how to write this type of letter. My son is 21 and this is why they are requesting it. We live in the state of California, I don't know if this makes any difference or not.

Hi,

Are you wanting to be named on the mutual fund or do you want the mutual fund to be transferred to a joint back account with both of your names on it?

All I want to do is change the mutual fund account to a joint account with me named as the primary. I have to have my son sign a letter that states by doing this he is relinquishing to me part of the value of the mutual fund account.
