Welcome to the TD Helps community, Mike. We're glad to help answer any questions you may have about TD Bank Checking accounts.
First, we'd like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the Checking products we currently offer, if you haven't already decided on one. You're welcome to take a look here: http://bit.ly/1oXjGgF for a detailed listing of all of our Checking account types. For your convenience, you also have the ability to use our Checking Account Selector tool at http://bit.ly/1vW1xnU, which can assist you in choosing the best account for you.
Once you have found an account you like, you have several convenient options to begin banking with us. First, if you like you may use the Open Account button at the above links to begin your account application. To complete it, you'll need your Social Security number and a valid personal identification such as a Driver's license, State ID, or Passport. If you open your account online, you can make your first deposit using a debit card linked to another account you may have or a credit card (Visa or MasterCard). You're also able to stop by at any of our Stores to make your initial deposit.
If you'd prefer to open your account by phone, feel free to give us a call 24/7 at 888-751-9000 to speak with one of our dedicated Banking Specialists. They will be more than happy to help you establish your account and if you open the account by phone, your representative will be glad to provide you with your convenient deposit options. You'll need the same identification information during your call as mentioned above.
You're also welcome to open your new account in person, or if you don't have a U.S. Social Security number, we invite you to visit one of our Store locations. Please see http://bit.ly/TDStores to search for the convenient TD Bank Store locations near you.
Once you are ready to visit a Store, as a U.S. Resident please bring the ID listed above or if you're a non-US Resident you will need to bring two forms of identification with you. One form of ID must be a valid non-US Passport or Visa with photo and the second form of valid ID you may select from the list below:
- Employment ID with Photo and Signature
- State Issued ID or Driver's License with Signature
- Foreign Driver's License with Photo
- US Employment Authorization card with Photo, Signature and Expiration Date
- College ID with Photo
- Alien Registration Card with Photo
- Permanent Resident Card with Photo
Also, for your convenience, we have compiled a checklist you may like to use if you'll be switching banks. Feel free to look here: http://bit.ly/1nEm90e. And get to know your new Checking account here: http://bit.ly/1D7QIEH.
Please note: at this time TD Bank Checking accounts are not able to be used for investing in stocks. You might want to check out http://bit.ly/1jv67cz and learn more about TD Ameritrade. TD Ameritrade is our brokerage affiliate and also falls under the TD Shield. Though we are under the same TD Shield we are two different business entities.
Hope this helps answer your question. Have a nice day.
