Frequently Asked Questions
TD Debit Card Advance is a discretionary overdraft service you can add to your personal checking account that allows us to approve ATM transactions and one-time debit card purchases, at our discretion, if you don't have enough money available in your account.
Enrollment is not automatic - you must sign up for it. If you want to activate this overdraft service on your checking account, we need to hear from you: Important Information about TD Debit Card Advance.
You may overdraw your available balance by up to $5 without being charged an overdraft fee. If your negative balance exceeds $5, we will charge you a $35 overdraft for each transaction that overdraws your account. We will not charge more than 5 overdraft fees per day.
Savings Overdraft Protection allows us to access funds from your TD bank savings account to cover transactions that would overdraw your account. However, if you don't have sufficient funds available in this account, your ATM transactions and one-time debit card purchases may be declined. TD Debit Card Advance allows us to approve these transactions at our discretion if you don't have enough money available in your savings accounts.
We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link to a savings or money market account or to an overdraft line of credit, which may be less expensive. Learn more about your overdraft options.
