As the executor for my father who died in 2013, I am charged to claim the amount that he cumulated in his account in a TD branch in the USA. He himself was not an american citizen. He lived in Montréal, Canada.
I was informed that the account has been closed on October 8th, 2013, with the mention Escheated.
Where and how should I process to claim the funds?

In reply to Isabelle, Montréal
Thanks for reaching out to us with your question, Isabelle and please accept our condolences on your father's passing. We can certainly assist you.
If an account becomes dormant with no activity, it can be turned over to the State in which the account was opened (escheated). You're welcome to take a look at the article listed here: http://1.usa.gov/1ED20S9, which reviews information about abandoned or unclaimed accounts in the U.S.
In order to recover these funds, you will want to contact the State in which the account was originally opened and you should be able to locate this contact information via that State's website. Please also refer to the State for further information regarding collecting these funds for a non-U.S. citizen, as States have their own requirements for finding and claiming unclaimed property.
If you know which State it is, we can also provide you with their contact information if you reach us at 888-751-9000. We're available 24/7 for you and can certainly help when you call.
We hope this helps you get started, Isabelle. All the best to your family and take care.
