Use current TCA by E*Trade forms for timely account processing

To ensure timely processing on TCA by E*Trade accounts, it is very important to use current forms. In April 2018, all TCA forms were updated to reflect the new TCA by E*Trade brand.

Effective January 1, 2019, TCA by E*Trade will no longer accept older versions of account forms—only current versions of the TCA by E*Trade forms will be accepted.

Flexible Plan makes using the correct forms easy for you in two ways: (1) The online IMA can prepopulate the TCA by E*Trade application on several account types. (2) You can find the most current TCA by E*Trade forms by logging on to flexibleplan.com and selecting the Product Provider Forms option under the New Accounts menu.
