Runningbum,
At the top of the Vanguard page, I clicked on ACTIVITY to see what money had posted to which account. My MM account is not completely updated, it shows dashes in all the dollar fields. But VTSAX is listed with the Dividend in the Activity section, and my amount was a little higher than I expected also.

I have a access to my kids accounts and my sister's account and all of them posted their Dividends on the 23rd with mine posting on the 24th. I guess VG has more accounts than can post in one nightly cycle and it takes two days to update all. This happens to me all the time, my account is always a day later than my family members accounts.

It just doesn't seem like I should have to be guessing about where money is coming from. It also reduces the time in an already tight window for making a final conversion, if I was doing one this year.
Not sure what you are not seeing. On our account, it is all posted under "activity->transaction history."

VTSAX came through and exactly matches the numbers here: https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual...ibutions/vtsax

My VTSAX annual dividends came through also, as did dividends and capital gain for VWIAX, and dividends for VFWAX. They are all sitting there in my money market (settlement) account as expected, in the expected amounts according to the final figures, not according to the estimates from weeks ago. I have the brokerage accounts now.

I can't imagine why these dividends wouldn't be showing up on someone's activity tab when they log into Vanguard. Could it be that the brokerage accounts are getting these dividends earlier than those remaining old accounts? Otherwise I have no ideas.

My account and my sister's account are brokerage and my kids are regular accounts. So basically her account was paid a day before mine and we both have brokerage accounts.

My VTSAX came through yesterday, but that must have been very late in the day, as I had checked after browsing this thread about 2pm yesterday - and they weren't there then.

Total Stock Market dividend showed up in my CU checking account yesterday. I'll probably start reinvesting divs again, now that we've paid off our new house. Things were a little tight for a while...

VWENX in our IRA's hasn't posted distro's yet.

VTSAX is showing up now. Perhaps I missed it, though I didn't think so. Since I didn't take a screen shot, I'll never know. The few hundred I was off is the VTCLX dividend, so the numbers add up.

Great!!! Whatever the reason, still I'm glad that got resolved.
