How do I open an account?

You can open your new account by clicking here or the "Let's Get Started" link and completing a brief questionnaire regarding your investment goals and experience. An investment model will then be recommended based on your answers to these questions.

How do I deposit money into my account? Can I setup direct deposit? Can I transfer assets from my other brokerage accounts?

When you create your account, you will have the opportunity to set up a one-time or recurring transfer from your bank account. At this time, we cannot accept direct deposit from your paycheck.

You can transfer assets from other brokerage accounts of the same type (e.g., IRA, joint account, etc.). Keep in mind, however, that these assets will be sold and reallocated to the investment model you select when you open your BCU Wealth Advisors account. We recommend that you speak with your tax advisor to discuss any tax consequences that may arise from this activity.

How do I make a deposit by check?

There are several options to deposit checks to your existing account. All checks should be payable to TD Ameritrade, FBO [Your Name] and reference your account number.

If your check is less than $10,000 you can deposit it electronically using your smartphone, with the AdvisorClient Check Deposit feature.

The overnight address for checks is:

TD Ameritrade Institutional
