Thanks so much for writing in today!
We hope you're doing well and we're happy to hear you're interested in having a debit card for your account. First we'd like to let you know that in order to have a Visa debit card in particular, it would be necessary to have a checking account with us. We can tell you more about this below. If you'd like to have an ATM card for your current savings account, this may be able to be issued for you and we recommend speaking with your mom as well as your local TD Store for assistance with that.
Regarding a checking account and debit card with us, in order to open an individual account with TD Bank you are required to be 18 years of age or older. That being said, if you're a student under the age of 18, you can open a joint checking account with a parent or guardian by visiting any TD Bank Store. This would give you the option of having a Visa debit card.
If you decide to do so, your parent or guardian to be listed on the account can visit a Store with you and they'll need a State license, State ID or Passport and their Social Security number. For you as a minor, acceptable forms of identification include a School ID (preferably with a picture), Passport, US Birth Certificate or Social Security card. Joint accounts may only be opened at a TD Bank location. Please check out: http://bit.ly/TDStores for a TD Store near you. Please keep in mind that depending on your age, the account may be opened at the discretion of your local TD Bank Store manager.
Just in case you'd like to review them, you'll be glad to know that TD Bank offers a wide array of accounts and we invite you to visit the below links for more information. Feel free to check out: http://bit.ly/1gAWlhY to view our Checking Selector and visit http://bit.ly/UbFOwS for the different types of checking accounts TD Bank offers. For teens that are full-time students, we invite you to check out our Student Checking account. To learn more about our Student Checking account, which includes no monthly maintenance fee or minimum daily balance for students under the age of 24, please visit http://bit.ly/S8Vejp.
At TD Bank, we also offer the TD Go Card, which is also a great option for you as a teen. The TD Bank Go Card is a great way to help our teen Customers manage funds and for parents and guardians to keep track of their spending. The TD Go Card is also easy to fund. Money can be loaded onto the card by the account owner by using a TD Bank Visa debit or credit card, 24 hours a day 7 days a week via the TD Go Card website: http://bit.ly/1wibSus. We invite you to check out the TD Go Card Terms and Conditions here: http://bit.ly/1eSK0Du and also here: http://bit.ly/1zrVD2w for more details on our TD Go Card Guide which includes any fees applicable. The Go Card can be used by teens age 13 and up.
Parents/Guardians can obtain a TD Go card for their teen by visiting this link: http://bit.ly/1jWLKzt, which takes you to the "Enrollment" page. Parents or Guardians can enroll their teen in the card here by following the prompts.
