Pretty much all the other major banks in the US do at this point, so does TD Bank offer debit cards with EMV chips yet, and if not when will this feature become available?

In reply to Scott, New Haven
Thanks for taking time to join us here at TD Helps, Scott. We appreciate your question and would be glad to help provide further details.
Our sincere apologies, however; at this time we do not offer this feature. While TD Bank does not offer EMV (Europay MasterCard and VISA) chip cards at this time, we will continue to assess our customers' needs. We are committed to providing financial solutions that meet those needs as they arise.
We appreciate your attention to your account security and would like to share that TD Bank offers customers multiple layers of security protection against fraud, and has tools in place to monitor for suspicious activity. We monitor cards for unusual activity 24 hours a day/seven days a week and will reach out to you if fraud is suspected. For additional safety, we encourage you to visit http://bit.ly/1npPddy for tips to protect your accounts.
If you are inquiring about EMV technology because you may be traveling abroad, please note that approximately 97% of international merchants at this time will accept magstripe-only cards. However, it’s good to have an alternate form of payment (i.e. cash) if your magstripe-only card is not accepted.
If you will be traveling, for the most effective use of your card we recommend contacting TD Bank prior to your trip to provide your travel dates and destinations. If you plan to travel while in another country using subways, buses, through toll booths, etc. try to purchase your tickets in advance. We also suggest bringing local currency just in case it is needed. And if your card is not accepted and you do not have local currency, we advise that you find an attendant who can help direct you toward an acceptable payment method. Please also see http://bit.ly/1ltwDDc for some of our international travel tips.
Should you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to let us know.
