More time to prevent fees with Grace Period3
Our Grace Period3 gives you until 11 PM ET the next business day to fix an overdraft. Here's how it works:
- Make sure your available balance4 is at least $0 by depositing enough to cover the overdrawn balance plus any additional transactions (for example, a scheduled payment or a recent check), by 11 PM ET the next business day
- We'll refund the overdraft fee to your checking account as long as your available account balance4 is at least $0 at the end of the Grace Period

TD Overdraft Relief FAQs
If you do not bring your checking account back to $0 within the Grace Period, an overdraft fee of $35 will be assessed to your account. We will never charge more than 3 fees per day per account.
You will want to deposit enough funds to bring your account to at least $0 before the end of Grace Period. This will include any checks that you've written that have not yet cleared and any pending debit transactions or scheduled payments that may come out of your account. For more info review the Personal Deposit Account Agreement on available balance.
A pending debit card transaction will not initiate a Grace Period until it is posted. However, it can further reduce your available balance and will need to be taken into account when bringing your account positive again, if you are in a Grace Period. Once the debit card transaction is posted and no longer pending, if you are overdrawn by more than $50 without any same day deposits, you may be in a Grace Period. Keep up with your account via Online Banking.
If you are enrolled in Savings Overdraft Protection and the funds are available in your linked savings account at the end of the day, we will automatically initiate a transfer to cover your overdrafts from that day, giving you the relief of not needing a Grace Period or being assessed an overdraft fee. There is no transfer fee to use Savings Overdraft Protection.
If you do not have enough funds in your linked savings account to cover your overdrafts from the current day, you will have until the end of the next business day to bring your account back to or above $0 before being assessed a fee.
You can see your year-to-date (YTD) Grace Period refunds at the top of your statements. This resets every calendar year. Sign up for e-statements in Online Banking to easily view your digital statement.
There is no limit to the number of Grace Period refunds you're eligible to receive. If a Grace Period is initiated and your account is brought back to at least $0 prior to 11 PM ET the following business day, a Grace Period refund will be credited to your account.
Great news, if you deposit enough cash on the same day that you overdraw, inclusive of any transactions incoming or outgoing to your account, you will receive the benefit of the cash before the debits are posted. Our order processing will process deposits first, followed by debits based on time order.
TD does not charge an additional fee if your account is overdrawn for multiple consecutive days, however you'll want to bring your account to $0 or above as soon as possible to keep it in good standing.
Yes, for any item we pay that overdraws your Savings Account, you may be charged a $35 Overdraft Fee (max 3 per day, per account). Your Savings Account is also subject to a $35 NSF (non-sufficient funds) Fee for each item we do not pay that would otherwise cause an overdraft. TD Debit Card AdvanceSM* is not available for your Savings Account, which means your account is set up to decline any ATM transactions that may cause an overdraft.
No, Grace Period and the $50 Overdraft Threshold apply only to Personal and Small Business Checking Accounts, not Savings Accounts.

*Important Details about TD Debit Card AdvanceSM
By enrolling in TD Debit Card AdvanceSM, you are permitting us to authorize and pay ATM and one-time debit card transactions when you do not have enough money available in your account to cover the transaction. A $35 fee applies to each transaction that overdraws your available account balance by more than $50, whether that transaction is made by debit card, check, in-person withdrawal, or other electronic means (up to a maximum of 3 fees per day per account). You are obligated to pay overdrafts immediately. Whether an overdraft will be paid is our discretion, and we reserve the right not to pay. For example, we typically do not pay overdrafts if your account is not in good standing, you are not making regular deposits, or you repeatedly overdraft. TD Debit Card AdvanceSM is different from other forms of overdraft coverage in that it does not transfer funds from an approved line of credit, savings account, or home equity line of credit. The order in which transactions are processed may affect the total amount of overdraft fees incurred. For more information see the Personal Deposit Account Agreement.
1Overdraft Services do not apply to TD Essential Banking Accounts. We may decline or return transactions that would result in an overdraft. Transactions that you make may cause your Account to overdraw but we will not assess your TD Essential Banking Account an overdraft fee or return item fee. For example, preauthorized transactions and other transactions may post to your Account even when the available balance in your Account is not sufficient to pay the transaction.
2Deposits follow our Funds Availability Policy.
3When items are presented for payment that result in your available Account balance being overdrawn by more than $50, Overdraft Grace provides you with an opportunity to receive refunds for overdraft fees if your available Account balance is at least $0, inclusive of any pending or posted items, at the end of the next business day.
4For the purposes of determining your available Account balance and processing items to your Account, including deposits made in an attempt to bring the available Account balance to at least $0, all items are processed overnight at the end of each Business Day (which excludes Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays). Items are processed, and funds are made available to your Account based on our Processing Order and Funds Availability Policies. Please see our Personal Deposit Account Agreement for full details.
5Our Standard Overdraft Service may allow ACH payments, recurring debit transactions and personal checks to go through for a fee. A $35 fee applies to each transaction that overdraws your available account balance by more than $50, (up to a maximum of 3 fees per day per account). Whether an overdraft will be paid is our discretion, and we reserve the right not to pay. For example, we typically do not pay overdrafts if your account is not in good standing, you are not making regular deposits, or you repeatedly overdraft. You are obligated to pay overdrafts immediately.
6This service does not completely eliminate Overdraft and Overdraft Return fees. We understand that some Customers prefer not to have any checks or other debits paid beyond their available checking account balance, even if that means having a check returned and incurring an Overdraft-Return fee. We will decline your payment with no fee when the preauthorization would result in insufficient funds. We may charge an Overdraft-Paid fee if the payment is preauthorized against sufficient funds but later exceeds the available balance because of an intervening transaction. This does not eliminate fees from transactions posted against unavailable deposits.
7Overdraft Payback automatically reimburses the first two overdraft fees (paid or returned) incurred within a calendar year (January – December); max $70 per calendar year.
