Hello Jose Ignacio,
Great question! We understand your concern and thank you for inquiring.
When negotiating a check made out to you, typically these need to be made payable to the name listed on your TD Bank account. If you typically use your middle name rather than your first name, we can offer a couple of suggestions.
First, you might like to ensure that your legal first name and your middle name are both listed on your TD account. To make sure of this or to make any update, you can visit any TD Store with your valid identification whcih documents your full name, such as an up-to-date Driver's license, Court Order or United States Passport. While there, we recommend discussing this concern with your Representative to ensure that we'll be able to accept your checks made payable this way. Or, if you have valid identification that lists your middle name as your first name, you can bring this with you to complete a name change as well. Your Store Representative may also be able to offer you additional options during your visit. Please find a Store near you using our location finder at: http://bit.ly/TDStores. If you complete a name change, you can expect this to take effect for your account within seven to ten business days.
As another option if you are depositing paychecks and your employer offers direct deposit, this may also help. You can download our Direct Deposit Authorization Form available at http://bit.ly/1sSvhT6 and provide it to them once you have filled it out. With this method you'll have fewer physical checks to deposit.
Otherwise, we recommend asking the maker of the checks (such as your employer or other party) to make the checks payable to your legal name for negotiation purposes.
We hope that one of these ideas will help, Jose Ignacio. We're available with any questions you have either by phone at 888-751-9000, 24/7 or feel free to write us back here! Just click 'Reply' to chat again.
Thanks again and enjoy your holiday weekend!
