My wife and I have JOINT savings and checking accounts. She has passed away. What do I do? Will my accounts be "frozen"?

In reply to Frank, Freehold
We're so very sorry to hear of your wife's passing, Frank. Please know that we're here to help in any way that we can.
If you and your wife had joint accounts, they will not be frozen. In joint accounts, all signers have 100% ownership over the account. So, even with your wife's passing, you still own the account and can continue to transact on it as normal.
Once you receive a Death Certificate for your wife, you may visit us at a local Store so that we can notate the account and change it to an individual account.
If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call 24/7 at 888-751-9000 or stop in to see us at any of our Stores. To find one near you, please click here: https://go.td.com/1nq31dc.
Again, we are very sorry for your loss. We wish you all the best and any peace you can find during this time. Take care, Frank.
