We're happy to see you visit us at TD Helps, Erika!
Once an account is opened as a joint account, or if you opened an individual account and then later added a secondary signer, both signers have equal rights and access to that account. This means that neither signer can be removed from the account, and if you do not wish to continue to share the account, the account must be closed. Once the account is closed, you may open a new Checking account to which your parents will not have access. Please also note that you must be 18 years of age or more in order to open an individual account with us.
If you decide to open a new account, we offer many different types of Checking accounts. Prior to opening an account we encourage you to view and compare our checking accounts, visit http://bit.ly/Wczmq0 or check out our Checking Selector Tool http://bit.ly/1vW1xnU for help selecting a checking account that is the best fit for you.
We currently offer many ways in which you can open a new account with TD Bank. You can open the account online by selecting the "Open Account" box located beneath each specific account by following this link: http://bit.ly/WrwMg7. You could also contact us at 888-751-9000 to speak with our Banking Specialists who are available 24/7 for your convenience. If you prefer, you may stop by any TD Store for further assistance on opening an account. To find the nearest TD Bank Store please visit http://bit.ly/TDStores.
Just in case you are accessing your Online Banking account via your family's online profile, we'd like to offer you the opportunity to have your own. Your profile would list only the accounts for which you are a signer. Please note that this would not remove any other signer's access to the account, as detailed above. If you're not currently enrolled and would like to take advantage of this free service you may click here: http://bit.ly/1lU2qfY. Please have your account number, ATM/Debit card number and Social Security number available to complete the enrollment. The page will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to complete the process. If you have any questions please call us by using the number listed above or visit a TD Store.
We hope this answers your question, Erika, and you have a fabulous night!
