Thank you for coming to TD Helps with your question, Karen. We're happy to say there are options to make a deposit if you can't reach a TD Bank or a TD ATM.
To make a deposit when you are unable to visit a TD Bank Store or ATM you can either send your deposit to the Bank via mail or through our Mobile App if you have an Android or iPhone.
To send your deposit via Mail, please send to the following address:
TD Bank, N.A. ME2-001-033 P.O. Box Number 1190 Lewiston, ME 04243
Some tips to consider prior to mailing your deposit include:
- Cash should not be sent through the mail
- Payee of the check and name on deposit ticket should be the same
- Checks should be endorsed (and restricted for deposit only)
- Multiple checks should be listed and a total of the deposit listed
- Enclose the deposit ticket, not the carbon copy
- If using a blank deposit ticket, please write account number clearly
- Do not staple transactions
You may also be eligible to make deposits through your smart phone. In order to be eligible to use our free Mobile Deposit service, you must be a TD Customer for at least 90 days or more and have at least one active Checking, Money Market, or Savings account. CDs, IRAs, and Passbook accounts are not eligible. Once you're able to use this feature, there is also a limit to the amount you can deposit using the Mobile Deposit feature. We invite you to take a look here: http://bit.ly/1e3jiYF for more information.
Once you're ready to use the mobile deposit feature you’ll first need to ensure that you're enrolled for Online Banking. To do so, you may sign up by viewing this link: http://bit.ly/1lU2qfY from a computer or the web browser on your phone. You will need your account number, debit card number and Social Security number to get started. Then you can download the app by clicking here: http://bit.ly/1EWKkPz and then you'll be ready to deposit your check from the comfort of your own home!
Hope this helps you out and enjoy your day.

Hi, I'm in the same boat as Karen and Angela. My question is, if I have a cheque to deposit and I write For deposit only into acct# and sign the back, and mail it to the above mentioned address, do I need to include any other paperwork such as a deposit slip? And where would I find such a deposit slip on line? Is the above address for couriers as well if I chose to FedEx or UPS it? Thank you.

Please know that it is recommended to include a deposit slip when mailing in a deposit however it is not necessary if you're including your account number on the back of your check. We apologize for any inconvenience however deposit slips are not available online at this time.
When mailing in a deposit, regardless of the method you choose, be sure to include the address exactly as it appears above to ensure your deposit is received.
We hope this clears things up, Holly. Have a good day.

I have only been a TD bank customer for about 30 days. I still can't use mobile app? I must mail in my deposit. I am also disable and have no deposit slip. The rep never mail anyone deposit slip out to me as of yet. Can I deposit a check without a deposit slip?

4. Click on OK to open a new window

Thanks for stopping by TD Helps, Warren!
As you mentioned you are in Arizona and do not have a deposit slip at this time, you may write your account information down on a small piece of paper to include in the envelope with your check.
We recommend reviewing the above replies from our friends for instructions on how to mail in a deposit.
We hope you have a great day!
