In reply to Megan, Brick
Hi there Megan,
We're very sorry to hear about your loss, please accept our condolences to you and your family.
If your father was listed as the Custodian for a savings account and he is now deceased, it would be necessary to provide us with the proper documentation so that the funds can change hands.
To get the process started, the Executor or Administrator of his estate must provide the following documentation to a TD Bank Store: valid photo identification, as well as a copy of the Death Certificate, an original 'Certificate of Letters Testamentary' or 'Letters of Administration' with raised seal dated within 60 days, and a 'Letter of Instructions' signed by all the Executors or Administrators (with signature guaranteed by another financial institution). The Death Certificate will provide the date of death if the date-of-death balance for the account is needed.
Please note that the documents needed can vary by State. Therefore, we recommend that you or the Executor/Administrator contact the Store you intend to visit prior to stopping in, to confirm if anything else is needed. For Store locations and hours, feel free to visit: http://bit.ly/TDStores. You can also reach us 24/7 at 888-751-9000 if you have other questions.
We hope this helps a bit, Megan.
All the best to you and your family and take care.
