My daughter is 14 years old and has a bank account under my name at citizens bank. At Citzens bank you hvae to be at least 16 to get a debit card. Could she open an account by herself at TD bank and be able to get a debit card if she has parental permission?

Thanks for bringing your question to TD Helps today, Lila.
We're happy to hear that you may be interested in opening an account with your daughter, and we'll be happy to help provide you with all the information you may need!
As you mentioned that your daughter is under the age of 18, it's important to note that she will need to open a joint account with a parent or guardian, such as yourself. Should you decide that you or another individual would like to be a singer on an account with her, she may also receive a Debit Card. Before your visit, we recommend that you contact the Store location that you plan on visiting to determine if this is a request they may complete for you and your daughter.
You're more than welcome to check out the link here: http://go.td.com/1f9DSJR to find your nearest TD Store location, as well as their hours and contact information.
Before your visit, you're also welcome to take a look at the accounts offered by TD Bank. As you stated that you were hoping to get a Debit Card for your daughter, it may be best to check out our Checking accounts, which you may view here: https://go.td.com/2eQORxu. However, we also offer Savings accounts, which you may view here: https://go.td.com/2bSlkVn. If you're having trouble deciding which account would best fit you or your daughter's needs, feel free to use our Selector Tool here: https://go.td.com/2sx4N2E which will make a personalized recommendation for you!
Once you and your daughter are ready to open your new account, please know that a valid form of identification such as a State License, State ID, Military ID or Passport will be needed by the parent or guardian to be listed on the account. Acceptable forms of identification for minors include a School ID (preferably with a picture), Passport, US Birth Certificate or Social Security card. We apologize for any inconvenience; however, at this time joint accounts must be opened at a TD Store location.
In addition to opening an account with your daughter for the purpose of her receiving a Debit Card, we're happy to announce that here at TD Bank, we also offer the TD Go Card!
The TD Go Card is a great option for parents or guardians who want to give their teens the freedom of spending, while still giving you the reassurance that comes with setting boundaries around your teens spending limits. Not only would you be able to monitor transactions, you would also have the option of easily loading funds and checking balances, either online, or even over the phone. The TD Go Card even offers email and text alerts!
To learn more about the TD Go Card, check out the link here: https://go.td.com/2sOysQZ.

If you have any questions about the TD Go Card, you're more than welcome to call us at 855-219-8050, and we'll be happy to help.

They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As always, you're also welcome to visit a TD Store location. To determine your nearest Store location, please check out the link above.
