I have received quite a few checks written out to Mr & Mrs. with my husbands last name. The problem is I have not changed my name yet and do not plan to do so for about a month (honeymoon is booked under maiden name and there is not time to change name and get new passport issued). Can I still deposit these checks if both my husband and I sign them even though my name has not legally been changed yet and would not match our joint account since that still has my maiden name as well. Should I sign these checks with my maiden name or with his last name?

In reply to Maria, Springfield
Thank you for reaching us on TD Helps, Maria, and we definitely want to say congratulations!
At this time, checks made out to two individuals need to be deposited or cashed by both parties by visiting a TD Store.
In order to deposit these types of checks, both individuals' names need to be displayed on the account receiving the deposit. Similarly, in order to cash these checks, both parties will need to have a valid photo I.D. (Driver's License, State Issued Photo I.D. and/or Passport etc.).
As you've mentioned that the checks are not only made out to you both but you have not updated your information yet, we recommend reaching out to the TD Store you plan on visiting to determine what documentation to bring with you. You are able to take a look at TD Stores near you by visiting http://bit.ly/TDStores.
We hope to see you both soon and have a good night!
