Thank you for your interest in banking with TD, Mark. We'd be glad to help.
Based on your question, it sounds as though you're interested in opening a business account. We'd like to let you know that when opening a business account you will need an Employer Identification Number/Tax Identification Number to do so however if you are to be an authorized signer on the potential business account we will also need to verify your Social Security Number. Please know that it will be included in your account profile.
We invite you to review the Business Checking options we offer, please visit http://bit.ly/1uCacgJ, or feel free to use our Business Checking Selector tool: http://bit.ly/1lGeYmw to make sure you have the best product for your needs.
If you need assistance while reviewing these options, a Business Banking Specialist would be a happy to help via telephone at 855-278-8988. You may also request a call from a Small Business Banking Specialist; please click here: http://bit.ly/K9iZ78 to fill in our form and we'll call you within 24 business hours.
If you found an account you like, you may open your business account at any TD Bank location. For information on our Store hours and locations please visit http://bit.ly/TDStores. If it's easier, you also have the option to contact one of our Banking Specialists at 888-751-9000, 24/7 to schedule an appointment at the TD Bank Store of your choice.
When visiting a Store, you'll need the following documents to open the account: a valid photo I.D. (Driver's License, Passport, Military ID, etc.) and your Social Security Number. If your business account is going to have multiple signers, be sure to bring them with you for the account opening process with the same forms of ID. If any of the signers are non-residents of the US, they would need two valid forms of ID and a W-8BEN form. You will also need to bring the Tax Identification number for the business, legal name, and physical address.
Also, please note that depending on the type of business you have, there may be additional documents you will need to bring with you. We'd recommend that you discuss this prior to stopping in at a Store, either by speaking with one of our Business Specialists as mentioned above or by contacting your preferred location. The telephone numbers for our Stores are listed at our Store Locator as posted above.
We hope to hear from you soon, Mark. Have a good day.

I very much appreciate the time and trouble for the reply. Thank You...
I am under the impression however that one may open an account without using ones SSN. There seems to be adequate information after searching this that seems to indicate that if you have an EIN that that might in fact be enough.
This will be a business account - but I really do not want to link any part of this to my SSN.
Am I off base here?
Again my thanks...
