Welcome, Scottrade Bank Clients

As part of TD Ameritrade’s acquisition of Scottrade, TD Bank, N.A. purchased Scottrade Bank. This will allow TD Ameritrade and TD Bank, N.A. to maintain the connection between your brokerage and bank accounts. Right now, as you know, there is nothing you need to do differently. Simply continue to use and access your Scottrade Bank account just as you do today.

As we move forward together, our goal is to make your transition simple and straightforward. We’ll keep you informed and up-to-date along the way. To start, we’ve put together answers to some questions you may have about your bank accounts and relationship.

You probably have a few questions.
Here are some answers.

Why did Scottrade sell my brokerage account(s) to TD Ameritrade and my bank account(s) to TD Bank, N.A., rather than sell both accounts to TD Ameritrade?

TD Ameritrade is an industry leading brokerage firm and does not offer bank accounts. This means they could not purchase Scottrade Bank. TD Bank, N.A. is a retail bank. Together, TD Ameritrade and TD Bank, N.A. are working to ensure you receive the same services between your brokerage and bank accounts that you experience today.

Why did I receive a communication about my brokerage account(s) and a separate communication about my bank account(s)?

TD Ameritrade purchased Scottrade, Inc. including your brokerage account. TD Bank, N.A. purchased your Scottrade Bank account. Both TD Ameritrade and TD Bank, N.A. will keep you informed about any changes to your accounts.

Why did I receive a communication about my brokerage account(s) but haven’t received any communication about my bank account(s)?

Communications about the change in ownership of Scottrade Bank to TD Bank, N.A. have been mailed and emailed to account holders. Please check your email and mail for this notification from Scottrade Bank. In addition, information about the change has been posted to this website. At this time, it is business as usual and your Scottrade Bank account and access remains the same. You'll continue to receive communications about your bank account from Scottrade Bank. Rest assured, we'll notify you of any changes to your accounts in advance.

What does this mean for me?

For now, it’s business as usual. Nothing has changed and you should continue to use your account as you do today. Your Bank account number remains the same. You can continue to use your Scottrade Bank checks and ATM/debit card, and make the deposits the same way you now do. Rest assured, we'll notify you of any changes to your accounts in advance.

Will I still have FDIC coverage for my accounts?

After the six-month period, your Scottrade Bank account(s) remains eligible for up to $250,000 FDIC insurance coverage from TD Bank, N.A. This coverage will encompass any former Scottrade Bank balances and those balances that you may have had at TD Bank, N.A.

If you maintain more than one bank account at TD Bank, N.A. and/or at Scottrade Bank, you are responsible for monitoring the amount of your deposits to determine the total amount of FDIC insurance available to you.
