Transferring Assets to TD Ameritrade


Your advisor will ask you questions that help ensure that all of the assets will be transferred properly.


Your advisor will then ask for a statement from your current custodian, dated within the past 90 days. Your advisor will make sure that all of your assets are able to be transferred to TD Ameritrade and confirm important account information.


Your advisor will also ask you to complete a Transfer of Account form (or other transfer paperwork provided by your current custodian). Your advisor will submit the form to TD Ameritrade for processing once it’s completed, signed, and dated.


The paperwork will be reviewed by TD Ameritrade and your transfer will take place. If there are any issues, TD Ameritrade will work with your advisor to resolve them. For more details on this process, review the FAQ.
