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.

Going paperless is easy. To start receiving electronic account statements and trade confirmations securely online, simply follow the instructions below:
The 5498 form reports IRA contributions (including catch-up contributions) and the fair market value of an IRA. If you made an IRA contribution, 60-day rollover, or direct rollover for the reporting year, you’ll get a 5498 form.*
We typically provide this form at the end of May. Eligible retirement account owners typically have until April 15 to make a prior-year contribution to their account. We will send the 5498 forms after that date to ensure all prior year contributions are included.
*Contributions to a qualified retirement plan (QRP) are reported on your W-2. The IRS and your tax professional can provide more information on reporting IRA contributions.
The IRS generally requires that you file an amended return on Form 1040X. You may also wish to seek the advice of a licensed tax advisor.
TD Ameritrade must issue a corrected 1099 when mutual funds and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) reallocate or reclassify their distributions in January for the previous tax year. Occasionally this process isn’t complete, or TD Ameritrade has not yet received the updated information, by the time 1099s are due to be mailed.
IRS regulations require that we issue a corrected 1099 within 30 days of receiving information showing that the previously issued form was incorrect.
