My dad currently has a TD bank account. I'm 16 and want to get a debit card/ student checking under his account. I went to ask if I can make an account for myself with my dad and one of the representatives from the desk said that i'm not eligible for one. He said: "There is no card/account for a person under the age of 18 for checking, mixing them with a different bank and that I can only open up a savings account". However, I asked my close friend who i found out has a TD bank account(w/ debit card) under his moms account with his name on the card (not jointed accounts) and he got it at 16 yrs old and still has it at 17. Am i able to make one or was the representative correct and if so how does my friend have a debit card?

Thanks for stopping by to ask your question here on TD Helps, Renata.
We are able to open a joint Student Checking account with you and your father as long as you are a student. When at the TD Store opening the account you may speak with one of our Customer Service Representatives of the possibility of obtaining a Debit Card with your name on it. It would require your father to be an authorized signer on the account, so we would ask that you both are present during the account opening process. For more information regarding Student Checking accounts, please visit us here: http://bit.ly/1gcgwnr. To find a nearby TD Bank Store location, please visit us here: http://bit.ly/1mGQtwe.
We hope the information provided helps, Renata. Let us know if you have any further questions and thank you for choosing TD Bank.
