					EXHIBIT 10(c) - #1 TCF FINANCIAL EXECUTIVE DEFERRED COMPENSATION PLAN Amended and Restated as of July 21, 1997 1. DEFERRAL OF INCENTIVE COMPENSATION AND SALARIES. a. From time to time eligible employees ("Employees") of TCF Financial Corporation ("TCF Financial") or any of its direct or indirect subsidiaries (each such corporation being referred to hereinafter as the "Company") may, by written notice, elect to have payment of a portion of their salary for the next succeeding calendar year, and/or all or a portion of their incentive compensation payable for the next succeeding calendar year, deferred as hereinafter provided. Each such deferral of compensation shall be (and is hereinafter referred to as) a "Deferred Amount." Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, an Employee may not elect to defer any portion of salary or incentive compensation with respect to any calendar year, unless such Employee's deferrals with respect to such year are at least $1,000 in the aggregate, and no deferral may be made of any salary or incentive compensation payable within 12 months after such Employee has received a distribution of pre-tax from the TCF Employees Stock Ownership Plan - 401(k) pursuant to the financial hardship withdrawal provisions of such plan. b. Any elections with respect to Deferred Amounts of salary shall be exercised in writing by the Employee prior to the latest to occur of the following: (i) the beginning of the calendar year for which the salary is to be earned; (ii) such Employee's first day of employment service in that year; or (iii) the first day of the calendar month next following the date the Employee first becomes eligible to participate in the Plan. Any election with respect to Deferred Amounts of incentive compensation shall be made no later than December 31 of the calendar year preceding the calendar year in which the periods of service are rendered for which the incentive compensation is to be paid. An election of Deferred Amounts, once made, is irrevocable, except as provided in paragraph 6 hereof. c. Deferred Amounts shall be subject to the rules set forth in this document, and each Employee shall have the right to receive cash payments on account of previously Deferred Amounts only in the amounts and under the circumstances hereinafter set forth. d. Employees eligible to participate in this Plan are Employees of a Company who have been designated by TCF Financial as subject to the reporting requirements of Section 16(a) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Eligibility shall be determined annually as of the latest practicable date prior to the commencement of each new calendar year. In the event an Employee ceases to be eligible for this Plan during the course of a calendar year, the Employee's eligibility shall nevertheless continue through the end of that calendar year. Notwithstanding the foregoing, individuals who become employees of a Company as a result of a merger or acquisition shall not be eligible Employees under this Plan unless and until TCF Financial has adopted a resolution identifying them as eligible Employees. 2. PERSONNEL COMMITTEE. The Committee (the "Committee") shall consist of such members of the Personnel Committee of the Board of Directors of TCF Financial Corporation who qualify as non-employee directors from time to time under Rule 16b-3 of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Full power and authority to construe, interpret, and administer

this Plan document shall be vested in the Committee. The Committee shall have full power and authority to make each determination provided for in this Plan document, and in this connection, to promulgate such rules and regulations as the Committee considers necessary or appropriate for the implementation and management of this Plan. The Committee shall have sole and absolute discretion in the performance of its powers and duties under this Plan. All determinations made by the Committee shall be final, conclusive and binding upon the Companies, each Employee and former Employee and their designees, unless found by a court of competent jurisdiction to have been arbitrary and capricious. The Committee shall have authority to designate officers of TCF Financial and to delegate authority to such officers to receive documents which are required to be filed with the Committee, to execute and provide directions to the Trustee and other administrators, and to do such other actions as the

this Plan document shall be vested in the Committee. The Committee shall have full power and authority to make each determination provided for in this Plan document, and in this connection, to promulgate such rules and regulations as the Committee considers necessary or appropriate for the implementation and management of this Plan. The Committee shall have sole and absolute discretion in the performance of its powers and duties under this Plan. All determinations made by the Committee shall be final, conclusive and binding upon the Companies, each Employee and former Employee and their designees, unless found by a court of competent jurisdiction to have been arbitrary and capricious. The Committee shall have authority to designate officers of TCF Financial and to delegate authority to such officers to receive documents which are required to be filed with the Committee, to execute and provide directions to the Trustee and other administrators, and to do such other actions as the Committee may specify on its behalf, and any such actions undertaken by such officers shall be deemed to have the same authority and effect as if done by the Committee itself. 3. DEFERRED COMPENSATION ACCOUNTS. Each Company shall establish on its books a separate account ("Account") for each of its Employees who becomes a participant in this Plan, and each such Account shall be maintained as follows: a. Each Account shall be credited with the Deferred Amounts elected by the Employee for whom such Account is established as of the date on which such Deferred Amount would otherwise have been paid to the Employee. b. To the extent that a Company has made contributions to the Trust described in paragraph 4 with respect to an Employee's Deferred Amounts, the Employee's Account shall thereafter be adjusted as described in paragraph 4. To the extent such contributions have not been made with respect to an Employee's Deferred Amounts, and within 30 days after the date on which such Deferred Amounts are credited to an Employee's Account, they shall have been deemed to have been invested in such investments as shall be permitted by the Committee and as the Employee shall direct. While an Employee's Account is deemed to be so invested, it shall be credited with all interest, dividends (whether in stock, cash, or other property), stock splits, or other property that would have been received if the Deferred Amounts had actually been so invested. All cash deemed to have been received with respect to investments deemed to have been made for an Employee's Account shall be deemed to be reinvested in such investments as the Employee shall direct as of a date selected by the Committee, which date shall be not less than 30 days after receipt of such direction, and the balance credited to an Employee's Account as of any date shall be equal to the fair market value of the investments deemed to have been made for such Account as of such date. c. Although the value of an Employee's Account is to be measured by the value of and income from certain investments, the value of and income from such investments are merely a measuring device to determine the payments to be made to each Employee hereunder. Each Employee, and each other recipient of an Employee's Deferred Amounts pursuant to paragraph 7, shall be and remain an unsecured general creditor of the Company by which he is employed with respect to any payments due and owing to such Employee hereunder. If a Company should from time to time, in its discretion, actually purchase the investments deemed to have been made for an Employee's Account, either directly or through the trust described in paragraph 4, such investments shall be solely for the Company's or such trust's own account, and the Employees shall have no right, title or interest therein.

4. TRUST. TCF Financial may establish a trust (of the type commonly known as a "rabbi trust") to aid in the accumulation of assets for payment of Deferred Amounts. In the event that such a Trust is established, the amounts credited to the Employee's Accounts shall be adjusted as follows: a. Each Company may, in its discretion, contribute to the trust an amount equal to the balance credited to the Account of each Employee (other than Employees who have made the election described in paragraph 3.c.) employed by such Company on the date of such contribution. Thereafter, each Company may, in its discretion, contribute to the trust an amount equal to the Deferred Amounts of the Employees employed by such Company within five business days after the Deferred Amount is earned by the Employee. The assets of the trust shall be invested in such investments as may be permitted by the Committee and directed by an Employee for his own Account. Any investment direction of an Employee shall be made consistent with Section 10 and shall be irrevocable with respect to the calendar year to which it applies. Insofar as the trustee of the Trust ("Trustee") has acquired an investment for an Employee's Account pursuant to such directions, the Employee shall have the right

4. TRUST. TCF Financial may establish a trust (of the type commonly known as a "rabbi trust") to aid in the accumulation of assets for payment of Deferred Amounts. In the event that such a Trust is established, the amounts credited to the Employee's Accounts shall be adjusted as follows: a. Each Company may, in its discretion, contribute to the trust an amount equal to the balance credited to the Account of each Employee (other than Employees who have made the election described in paragraph 3.c.) employed by such Company on the date of such contribution. Thereafter, each Company may, in its discretion, contribute to the trust an amount equal to the Deferred Amounts of the Employees employed by such Company within five business days after the Deferred Amount is earned by the Employee. The assets of the trust shall be invested in such investments as may be permitted by the Committee and directed by an Employee for his own Account. Any investment direction of an Employee shall be made consistent with Section 10 and shall be irrevocable with respect to the calendar year to which it applies. Insofar as the trustee of the Trust ("Trustee") has acquired an investment for an Employee's Account pursuant to such directions, the Employee shall have the right to determine confidentially whether such investment will be tendered in a tender or exchange offer, and to direct the Trustee accordingly. The terms of the trust shall be consistent with the terms of this Plan. The Trustee shall be a corporate trustee independent of the Company or, if individual(s), shall not include at any time any person who is or has been eligible for participation in this Plan. Nothing herein shall be construed as requiring the Company to make any contributions to the trust. To the extent such contributions are actually made, the trust assets shall remain subject to the claims of the Company's general creditors in the event of its insolvency. b. The trust shall provide for separate accounts in the name of each Employee who has elected a Deferred Amount. Except as provided in paragraph 4.d., from and after the date as of which such accounts are established, the balances in the Accounts established for Employees pursuant to this Plan shall be equal to the balances credited to such separate accounts. Each such separate account shall then be adjusted as follows: (i) Contributions made by the Companies to the trust on behalf of such Employee, and all dividends or other distributions made with respect to property allocated to such separate account, and shall be credited to such separate account and invested as the Employee shall direct. (ii) Each Employee's separate account shall be increased by the amount of any increase in the fair market value, as determined by the Trustee, of any assets allocated to such separate account, and shall be decreased by any decrease in the fair market value of such assets, as determined by the Trustee. (iii) Each Employee's separate account shall be reduced by any distributions made to the Employee from the trust which are chargeable to such separate account. c. An Employee's right to direct the investment of the Employee's separate account shall continue during any period of distribution subsequent to the Employee's termination of employment in the same manner as if the Employee had continued as an active Employee, although the Committee may, in its discretion, add additional registered mutual funds or collective or common trustee funds which are available only for the accounts of terminated Employees if the Committee deems such funds to be particularly appropriate or

suitable for such accounts. d. The adjustments described in this paragraph 4 shall only be made to an Employee's Account to the extent that a Company has made contributions to the trust pursuant to this paragraph 4. If for any reason such contributions have not been made then, and only to that extent, the Employee's Account shall be adjusted as provided in paragraph 3.b. 5. PAYMENT OF DEFERRED AMOUNT. Not later than the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Committee following the termination of an Employee's employment or disability (as defined herein), the Committee shall direct the Trustee to commence distribution of the amounts credited to such Employee's Account. Commencing within the 30 day period following the Committee's direction, the balance credited to the Employee's Account shall be paid as follows: a. For distributions commencing on or after January 1, 1996 (or distributions commencing on or after January 1,

suitable for such accounts. d. The adjustments described in this paragraph 4 shall only be made to an Employee's Account to the extent that a Company has made contributions to the trust pursuant to this paragraph 4. If for any reason such contributions have not been made then, and only to that extent, the Employee's Account shall be adjusted as provided in paragraph 3.b. 5. PAYMENT OF DEFERRED AMOUNT. Not later than the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Committee following the termination of an Employee's employment or disability (as defined herein), the Committee shall direct the Trustee to commence distribution of the amounts credited to such Employee's Account. Commencing within the 30 day period following the Committee's direction, the balance credited to the Employee's Account shall be paid as follows: a. For distributions commencing on or after January 1, 1996 (or distributions commencing on or after January 1, 1994 after a termination of employment due to death or disability), payment shall be in fifteen annual installments except that the Committee may determine on a case by case basis to approve a different payment schedule for an Employee after taking into account whether such a schedule would be in the best interests of TCF Financial, including whether the Employee has executed or will execute a non-competition agreement in form and scope reasonably acceptable to the Committee, and such other factors as the Committee considers appropriate in each case. Any alternative payment schedule approved by the Committee under this paragraph 5.a. may be in the form of installments over such period as the Committee selects, in the form of a lump sum, or any combination of installments and lump sum payments as the Committee determines to be in TCF Financial's best interests. For distributions commencing prior to January 1, 1996 and not after a termination of employment due to death or disability, and for distributions from the Accounts of Employees who did not consent to the terms of this paragraph 5.a., the balance in the Account shall be paid as provided in paragraph h of this section. b. The first payment under paragraph 5.a. shall be paid on a date selected by the Committee which is no later than 30 days after the Committee's direction as to the form and timing of distributions is made, or if no date is selected, the later of 30 days after the Committee's action or 30 days after the Employee's termination of employment. Succeeding installments (if any) shall be paid on January 31 of each calendar year following the calendar year in which the first payment was made. c. Each payment shall be made in cash or in kind as the Committee, in its discretion, shall determine, or if the Committee makes no instruction, the payment shall be in cash, except that any portion of the Account which is invested in securities of TCF Financial shall be distributed in kind. Each annual installment payment shall have a value equal to the amount credited to Employee's Account, as reported on the latest available account statement as of the first day of the calendar month in which the installment is paid, multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is one and the denominator of which is the number if installments remaining to be paid, including the current installment. d. For purposes of this section, an Employee's employment is considered to terminate as of the date which is the later of (i) Employee's last date of service for the Company, or (ii) the last date on which there is an employment relationship between the Employee and a Company.

e. For purposes of this section, an Employee is disabled as of the date the Employee is eligible for payments under the long term disability plan of a Company. f. In the event installment payments commence and any installments are unpaid at the time of Employee's death, the payments shall be made at the times and in such amounts as if Employee were living to the persons specified in paragraph 7.a. g. For purposes of this section, an Employee's termination of employment is considered a retirement if it occurs on or after the date the employee has attained age 55. h. For distributions to Employees who did not consent to the terms of paragraph 5.a. or distributions otherwise not subject to the terms of Paragraph

e. For purposes of this section, an Employee is disabled as of the date the Employee is eligible for payments under the long term disability plan of a Company. f. In the event installment payments commence and any installments are unpaid at the time of Employee's death, the payments shall be made at the times and in such amounts as if Employee were living to the persons specified in paragraph 7.a. g. For purposes of this section, an Employee's termination of employment is considered a retirement if it occurs on or after the date the employee has attained age 55. h. For distributions to Employees who did not consent to the terms of paragraph 5.a. or distributions otherwise not subject to the terms of Paragraph 5.a., distribution shall occur on or about the 30th day after the Employee's termination of employment and shall consist of a single lump sum equal to the total value of the Employee's Account unless the termination of employment was due to retirement or disability (as defined herein), in which case the distribution shall be in five annual installments PROVIDED THAT the Committee shall reduce the number of the installments as necessary to provide for annual payments of at least $15,000 or, if the value of the Employee's Account is less than $15,000 as of any annual installment payment date, the Account shall be paid in full as of such installment payment date. Distributions shall be in the form of cash, except that any portion of the Account invested in securities of TCF Financial shall be distributed in kind, unless the Committee directs otherwise, and the value of any portion of the account distributed in cash shall be equal to the cash received upon its liquidation by the Trustee, provided that such liquidation occurs on the latest practicable date prior to the distribution date. i. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 5 or any payment schedule approved by the Committee pursuant to this Section 5 and regardless of whether payments have commenced under this Section 5, in the event that the Internal Revenue Service should finally determine with respect to an Employee who has terminated employment with the Company that part or all of the value of the Employee's Deferred Amounts or Plan Account which have not actually been distributed to the Employee, or that part or all of a related Trust Account which has not actually been distributed to the Employee, is nevertheless required to be included in the Employee's gross income for federal and/or State income tax purposes, then the Deferred Amounts or the Account or the part thereof that was determined to be includible in gross income shall be distributed to the Employee in a lump sum as soon as practicable after such determination without any action or approval by the Committee. A "final determination" of the Internal Revenue Service for purposes of this paragraph 5.i. is a determination in writing by said Service ordering the payment of additional tax, reporting of additional gross income or otherwise requiring Plan amounts to be included in gross income, which is not appealable or which the Employee does not appeal within the time prescribed for appeals. 6. EMERGENCY PAYMENTS. In the event of an "unforeseeable emergency" as determined hereafter, the Committee may determine the amounts payable under paragraph 5 hereof and pay all or a part of such amounts without regard to the payment dates provided in paragraph 5 to the extent the Committee determines that such action is necessary in light of immediate and heavy needs of the Employee (or his beneficiary) occasioned by severe financial hardship. For the purposes of this paragraph 6, an "unforeseeable emergency" is a severe financial hardship to the Employee resulting from a sudden and unexpected illness or accident of the Employee or beneficiary, or of a dependent (as defined in Section 152(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended) of the Employee or beneficiary, loss of the Employee's or beneficiary's property due to casualty, or other similar extraordinary and unforeseeable

circumstances arising as a result of events beyond the control of the Employee or beneficiary. Payments shall not be made pursuant to this paragraph 6 to the extent that such hardship is or may be relieved: (a) through reimbursement or compensation by insurance or otherwise, (b) by liquidation of the Employee's or beneficiary's assets, to the extent the liquidation of such assets would not itself cause severe financial hardship, or (c) by cessation of the Employee's deferrals under the Plan. Such action shall be taken only if Employee (or Employee's legal representatives or successors) signs an application describing fully the circumstances which are deemed to justify the payment, together with an estimate of the amounts necessary to prevent such hardship, which application shall be approved by the Committee after making such inquiries as the Committee deems necessary or appropriate.

Payments shall not be made pursuant to this paragraph 6 to the extent that such hardship is or may be relieved: (a) through reimbursement or compensation by insurance or otherwise, (b) by liquidation of the Employee's or beneficiary's assets, to the extent the liquidation of such assets would not itself cause severe financial hardship, or (c) by cessation of the Employee's deferrals under the Plan. Such action shall be taken only if Employee (or Employee's legal representatives or successors) signs an application describing fully the circumstances which are deemed to justify the payment, together with an estimate of the amounts necessary to prevent such hardship, which application shall be approved by the Committee after making such inquiries as the Committee deems necessary or appropriate. 7. METHOD OF PAYMENTS. a. In the event of Employee's death, payments shall be made to the persons (including a trustee or trustees) named in the last written instrument signed by Employee and received by the Committee prior to Employee's death, or if Employee fails to so name any person, the amounts shall be paid to Employee's estate or the appropriate distributee thereof. The Committee, the Company, and the Trustee shall be fully protected in making any payments due hereunder in accordance with what the Committee believes to be such last written instrument received by it. b. Payments due to a legally incompetent person may be made in such of the following ways as the Committee shall determine: (i) directly to such incompetent person, (ii) to the legal representative of such incompetent person, or (iii) to some near relative of the incompetent person to be used for the latter's benefit. c. Except as otherwise provided in paragraphs 7.a. and b., all payments to persons entitled to benefits hereunder shall be made to such persons in person or upon their personal receipt or endorsement, and shall not be grantable, transferable, or otherwise assignable in anticipation of payment thereof, in whole or in part, by the voluntary or involuntary acts of any such persons, or by operation of law, and shall not be pledged, encumbered, or otherwise liable or taken for any obligation of such person. d. All payments to persons entitled to benefits hereunder shall be made out of the general assets, and shall be the sole obligations, of the Employer(s) by which the Eligible Employee was employed, except to the extent that such payments are made out of the trust described in paragraph 4. 8. CLAIMS PROCEDURES. a. If a claim for benefits made by any person (the "Applicant") is denied, the Committee shall furnish to the Applicant within 90 days after its receipt of such claim (or within 180 days after such receipt if special circumstances require an extension of time) a written notice which: (i) specifies the reasons for the denial, (ii) refers to the pertinent provisions of the Plan on which the denial is based, (iii) describes any additional material or information necessary for the perfection of the claim and explains why such material or

information is necessary, and (iv) explains the claim review procedures. b. Upon the written request of the Applicant submitted within 60 days after his receipt of such written notice, the Committee shall afford the Applicant a full and fair review of the decision denying the claim and, if so requested: (i) permit the Applicant to review any documents which are pertinent to the claim, (ii) permit the Applicant to submit to the Committee issues and comments in writing, and (iii) afford the Applicant an opportunity to meet with a quorum of the Committee as a part of the review procedure. c. Within 60 days after its receipt of a request for review (or within 120 days after such receipt if special circumstances, such as the need to hold a hearing, require an extension of time) the Committee shall notify the

information is necessary, and (iv) explains the claim review procedures. b. Upon the written request of the Applicant submitted within 60 days after his receipt of such written notice, the Committee shall afford the Applicant a full and fair review of the decision denying the claim and, if so requested: (i) permit the Applicant to review any documents which are pertinent to the claim, (ii) permit the Applicant to submit to the Committee issues and comments in writing, and (iii) afford the Applicant an opportunity to meet with a quorum of the Committee as a part of the review procedure. c. Within 60 days after its receipt of a request for review (or within 120 days after such receipt if special circumstances, such as the need to hold a hearing, require an extension of time) the Committee shall notify the Applicant in writing of its decision and the reasons for its decision and shall refer the Applicant to the provisions of the Plan which form the basis for its decision. 9. MISCELLANEOUS. a. Except as limited by paragraph 7.c. and except that an Employee shall have a continuing power to designate a new recipient in the event of Employee's death at any time prior to such death without the consent or approval of any person theretofore named as Employee's recipient by an instrument meeting the requirements of paragraph 7.a., this document shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of each Company, the Employees, their legal representatives, successors and assigns, and all persons entitled to benefits hereunder. b. Any notice given in connection with this document shall be in writing and shall be delivered in person or by registered mail or overnight delivery service, return receipt requested. Any notice given by registered mail or overnight delivery service shall be deemed to have been given upon the date of delivery indicated on the return receipt, if correctly addressed. c. Nothing in this document shall interfere with the rights of any Employee to participate or share in any profit sharing or pension plan which is now in force or which may at some future time become a recognized plan of any Company. d. Nothing in this document shall be construed as an employment agreement nor as in any way impairing the right of any Company to terminate an Employee's employment at will. e. This Plan constitutes a mere promise by the Company to make benefit payments in the future, and it is intended to be unfunded for tax purposes and for the purposes of Title I of ERISA. The rights of an Employee or beneficiary to receive benefit payments hereunder are solely those of an unsecured general creditor of the Company. 10. SPECIAL PROVISION FOR EMPLOYEES SUBJECT TO SECTION 16 OF THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE ACT OF 1934. Notwithstanding anything in this Plan to the contrary, for an Employee who is subject to liability under Section 16 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, the following special provisions apply: a. Any election of Deferred Amounts of salary or incentive compensation under paragraph 1.b. shall be exercised in writing by the Employee and filed with the

Committee no later than the date prior to the date the first salary or incentive compensation, part or all of which is to become a Deferred Amount, is earned. b. Any investment election under paragraph 3 or 4 relating to initial or periodic investment of Deferred Amounts in stock of TCF Financial, whether as a result of an initial or yearly election to participate in the Plan or a change in the level of participation in the Plan, shall be exercised in writing by the Employee and filed with the Committee no later than the date prior to the date the first salary or incentive compensation, part or all of which is to become a Deferred Amount, is earned. Deferred Amounts of salary or incentive compensation, to the extent they are forwarded to the trustee, shall be so forwarded on or immediately after the payroll date of the salary or incentive compensation which is being deferred and shall be deemed to be invested on the same date on which the Trustee

Committee no later than the date prior to the date the first salary or incentive compensation, part or all of which is to become a Deferred Amount, is earned. b. Any investment election under paragraph 3 or 4 relating to initial or periodic investment of Deferred Amounts in stock of TCF Financial, whether as a result of an initial or yearly election to participate in the Plan or a change in the level of participation in the Plan, shall be exercised in writing by the Employee and filed with the Committee no later than the date prior to the date the first salary or incentive compensation, part or all of which is to become a Deferred Amount, is earned. Deferred Amounts of salary or incentive compensation, to the extent they are forwarded to the trustee, shall be so forwarded on or immediately after the payroll date of the salary or incentive compensation which is being deferred and shall be deemed to be invested on the same date on which the Trustee purchases the designated investments. The Trustee shall purchase such investments as soon as practicable after the payroll date for which the Deferred Amount is received, and in the case of investments consisting of equity securities of TCF Financial, no later than two weeks after such payroll date, with the exact date and purchase terms to be determined by a stock broker or other investment professional on the basis of such person's judgment as to the best available purchase price for the Plan and Trust. If Deferred Amounts are not forwarded to the Trustee, investments in equity securities of TCF Financial shall be deemed to occur at the average of the high and low trading price for such securities on the payroll date. c. Any investment election under paragraph 3 or 4 relating to liquidation of existing investments and reinvestment or reapplication of proceeds within the Plan or Trust shall be exercised in writing and filed with the Committee by the Employee on any date, provided that any such election relating to equity securities of TCF Financial is at least six months after the date of the Employee's last such discretionary election of an opposite type (buy-sell or sellbuy) relating to equity securities of TCF Financial under this or any other benefit plan of the Company. Liquidation and/or reinvestment of funds within the Plan or Trust under Section 3 or 4 shall occur as soon as practicable after the Employee's election is filed with the Committee, provided that the Committee determines it is a valid election and, in the case of liquidation or reinvestment in equity securities of TCF Financial, such election is implemented by the Trustee no later than two weeks after the date such election is filed with the Committee and determined to be valid, with the exact date(s) and terms of any such transaction involving equity securities of TCF Financial to be determined by a stock broker or other investment professional on the basis of such person's judgment as to the then best available purchase or sale price for the Plan and Trust. If Deferred Amounts have not been forwarded to the Trustee, to the extent there are no actual funds to implement the Employee's election, such election shall be deemed to be implemented at the average of the high and low sales prices for the equity securities of TCF Financial on the date the election was filed with the Committee and determined to be valid and, for other investments, on such basis as the Trustee reasonably determines. d. In the event of one or more distributions under Section 5 of this Plan to an Employee subject to this Section, the Committee shall specify whether such distributions will be in cash or in kind (or, if the Committee does not so specify, the distribution will be in cash except that securities of TCF Financial will be distributed in kind) and, the value of any cash portion of such distribution shall be equal to the value obtained upon liquidating the investment, provided that such liquidation occurs on the latest practicable day prior to the distribution date. e. In the case of any Employee subject to this Section, an election under

Section 6 for an emergency payout resulting in liquidation of equity securities of TCF Financial shall be exercised by such Employee no sooner than six months after any election by such Employee to purchase equity securities of TCF Financial under this plan or any other plan of the Company. The value of equity securities of TCF Financial for purposes of such distribution shall be their value on or about the third business day prior to the date of the distribution. 11. SPECIAL PROVISIONS REGARDING OSPIP AND DEFERRED STOCK. Effective for deferrals of incentive compensation with respect to the 1992 calendar year and thereafter, Employees' deferrals of incentive compensation payable in the form of common stock of TCF Financial pursuant to the Officer's Stock Performance Incentive Plan ("OSPIP") or otherwise subject to issuance as Deferred Stock under the Stock Option and Incentive Plan of TCF Financial , the TCF Financial 1995 Stock Incentive Plan, or any successor stock option plan or restricted stock plan of TCF Financial shall be credited to the Employee's account as "Deferred Stock" and the Employee shall be prohibited from making any investment election with respect to such

Section 6 for an emergency payout resulting in liquidation of equity securities of TCF Financial shall be exercised by such Employee no sooner than six months after any election by such Employee to purchase equity securities of TCF Financial under this plan or any other plan of the Company. The value of equity securities of TCF Financial for purposes of such distribution shall be their value on or about the third business day prior to the date of the distribution. 11. SPECIAL PROVISIONS REGARDING OSPIP AND DEFERRED STOCK. Effective for deferrals of incentive compensation with respect to the 1992 calendar year and thereafter, Employees' deferrals of incentive compensation payable in the form of common stock of TCF Financial pursuant to the Officer's Stock Performance Incentive Plan ("OSPIP") or otherwise subject to issuance as Deferred Stock under the Stock Option and Incentive Plan of TCF Financial , the TCF Financial 1995 Stock Incentive Plan, or any successor stock option plan or restricted stock plan of TCF Financial shall be credited to the Employee's account as "Deferred Stock" and the Employee shall be prohibited from making any investment election with respect to such Deferred Stock until the date or dates specified in an award agreement entered into pursuant to the Stock Option and Incentive Plan by TCF Financial, subject to acceleration upon the occurrence of events as specified in such agreement. Upon and after such date or dates, the Deferred Stock credits to the Employee's account shall be subject to investment elections the same as any other credits in the Employee's accounts. In the event TCF Financial so notifies the Trustee, dividend credits on Deferred Stock shall be withheld until such time as the Deferred Stock becomes subject to investment elections. In the event the Employee's employment terminates or in the event of the Employee's disability, any Deferred Stock credits not yet subject to investment election by the Employee shall be reduced to zero and no benefits shall be payable with respect to them. Deferred Stock credits shall not be distributable pursuant to paragraph 6 (Emergency Payments) until they are subject to investment election by the Employee. 12. TERMINATION OR AMENDMENT. The Board of Directors of TCF Financial may, in its discretion, terminate or amend this document from time to time, provided, however, that no such termination or amendment shall (without the Employee's consent) alter any Employee's right to payments of amounts previously credited to such Employee's Account or delay the time or times at which an Employee is entitled to receive payments with respect to his Deferred Amounts, unless such termination or amendment is necessary as a condition of receiving a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service that Employees' Deferred Amounts will not be included in their gross income for Federal income tax purposes until such time as they are actually paid or otherwise made available to the Employee.

Succeeding installments (if any) shall be paid on January 31 of each calendar year following the calendar year in which the first payment was made, except that an executive who has terminated employment and commenced receiving payments may elect each year to have the payment otherwise due on January 31 of the next succeeding year paid as monthly installments instead, with each payment made on the last day of each month. Any such election shall be made in writing and delivered to the Committee on or before December 1 prior to any year for which it is to be effective. Such election may also indicate the assets to be liquidated in connection with each monthly payment. The amount of each monthly payment shall be equal to the amount that would otherwise be paid in one payment in January, divided by 12. Any assets to be liquidated in order to pay monthly benefits shall be liquidated on the last practicable date prior to the installment's payment date. In no event shall this paragraph be construed as allowing the executive to lengthen or shorten the number of years over which his or her benefits will be paid; the election herein pertains only to timing of payments within a year.

(c) STOCKSHARE PLAN. The "Stockshare Plan" is the TCF Employees' Stock Ownership Plan - 401(k) as amended from time to time. (d) TCF PENSION PLAN.

(h) TCF FINANCIAL. "TCF Financial" is TCF Financial Corporation, a Delaware Corporation. (i) EMPLOYER. "Employer" is TCF Financial, or any of its direct or indirect subsidiary companies which is the employer of an Eligible Employee under this Plan. III. SUPPLEMENTAL BENEFITS RELATED TO THE STOCKSHARE PLAN. (a) CONTRIBUTIONS OF DEFERRED COMPENSATION AND EMPLOYER MATCHING CONTRIBUTIONS. Each Eligible Employee may elect to have treated as Deferred Compensation that portion of such Employee's Covered Compensation which is earned subsequent to the date of such election and which does not exceed the sum of the following: (i) the amount by which such Employee's elective deposits are reduced under the Stockshare Plan, in order to cause such Plan to comply with the limitations set forth in Sections 401(k)(3) and/or 401(m)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code; and (ii) the amount by which such Employee's elective deposits are limited under the Stockshare Plan by the restriction of covered compensation under such Plan to the dollar limitation under Internal Revenue Code Section 401(a)(17); and (iii) the amount by which such Employee's elective deposits are limited under the Stockshare Plan by restrictions on covered compensation under such Plan resulting from anti-discrimination standards under Internal Revenue Code Sections 401(a)(5)(B) and 414(s). For purposes of this subparagraph (iii), a limitation on covered compensation shall be deemed to occur with respect to any amounts which are deferred under the TCF Financial Executive Deferred Compensation Plan or TCF Financial Senior Officer Deferred Compensation Plan and which are excluded from covered compensation under the Stockshare Plan as a result of Internal Revenue Code Sections 401(a)(5)(B) and 414(s); and (iv) the amount by which such Employee's deposits to the Stockshare Plan exceed the limitation in Section 402(g) of the Internal Revenue Code; and (v) for the calendar year ending December 31, 1988, only, the amount by which such Employee voluntarily elects to reduce elective deposits to the Stockshare Plan in order to cause such Plan to comply with the limitations set forth in Sections 401(k)(3) and/or 401(m)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code for such year. Notwithstanding the foregoing, contributions of Deferred Compensation by an Eligible Employee under this paragraph (a) in a calendar year shall not exceed the amount such Employee could have deposited in the Stockshare Plan from such Employee's Covered Compensation as defined in this Plan, reduced by the amount of elective deposits actually made by such Employee to the Stockshare Plan during such calendar year.

Any election of Deferred Compensation pursuant to this section (a) shall be in writing, shall be made prior to the beginning of the calendar year in which the Deferred Compensation is earned, or, if later, within thirty (30) days after the employee first becomes eligible (provided such election only applies to compensation earned after the election is received by the Company), shall be applicable to all compensation earned for such calendar year, and shall be irrevocable when received by the Employer. At the same time as an amount of Deferred Compensation is deferred under this paragraph (a), the Employer shall be deemed to contribute to this Plan the amount of Employer Matching Contribution due under the Stockshare Plan with respect to such Deferred Compensation if it had been contributed to the Stockshare Plan, together with the "gross-up" contribution, if any, provided under section (c) of this Article III. (b) ESTABLISHING ACCOUNTS AND VALUATION OF ACCOUNTS. On the date that an amount of

Any election of Deferred Compensation pursuant to this section (a) shall be in writing, shall be made prior to the beginning of the calendar year in which the Deferred Compensation is earned, or, if later, within thirty (30) days after the employee first becomes eligible (provided such election only applies to compensation earned after the election is received by the Company), shall be applicable to all compensation earned for such calendar year, and shall be irrevocable when received by the Employer. At the same time as an amount of Deferred Compensation is deferred under this paragraph (a), the Employer shall be deemed to contribute to this Plan the amount of Employer Matching Contribution due under the Stockshare Plan with respect to such Deferred Compensation if it had been contributed to the Stockshare Plan, together with the "gross-up" contribution, if any, provided under section (c) of this Article III. (b) ESTABLISHING ACCOUNTS AND VALUATION OF ACCOUNTS. On the date that an amount of Deferred Compensation or Employer Matching Contribution under paragraph (a) would otherwise be paid to the Stockshare Plan (the "contribution date"), the amount of such Deferred Compensation or Employer Matching Contribution shall be credited to an account on the books of the Employer and shall be deemed as of such date to be invested in whole or fractional shares of common stock of TCF Financial. Thereafter, such account shall be increased to reflect the number of shares of TCF Financial stock deemed to be purchased as of each future contribution date (including any fractional shares) and shall be further increased to reflect the deemed purchase of additional shares upon the issuance of a cash dividend on such stock, and shall be further adjusted to reflect any stock splits or stock dividends or other similar events involving a change in the number or form of outstanding shares of TCF Financial stock. Adjustments shall be determined in each case by the Committee and the Committee's determination shall be final. (c) DISTRIBUTIONS FROM ACCOUNTS. An Eligible Employee shall receive a lump sum distribution of cash equal to the then-current value of the number of shares in such Employee's account in this Plan no later than 30 days after the Employee's termination of employment with the Employer or termination of the Stockshare Plan, whichever occurs first. For purposes of the foregoing sentence, a termination of employment shall not be deemed to occur upon a transfer of employment between two or more Employers. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any contributions made pursuant to subsection (a)(v) of this Article III shall be distributable as provided in this subsection (c) unless the Employee elected otherwise prior to the commencement of participation in this Plan and selected a form of distribution set forth below in this subsection(c). In the event the Eligible Employee did not make such an election with respect to contributions under section (a)(v), an Employer contributed to this Plan a "gross-up" amount which was equal to the reasonable estimate of TCF Financial of the rate of income tax which will be applicable to the amount of such Employee's contribution multiplied by the amount of such contribution. An Eligible Employee may elect to have benefits from this Article III distributed in one of the following forms, provided that such election is in writing, is irrevocable, and is executed prior to the commencement of such Employee's participation in this Plan: (i) distribution in five equal annual installments, (ii) distribution in ten equal annual installments, or (iii) distribution of $10,000.00 annually until the account is depleted. Installment payments shall commence on the 15th day of the first calendar quarter

immediately following the Employee's termination of employment with succeeding amounts paid on each January 15th thereafter. The amount of each installment under (i) and (ii) shall be determined each year by dividing the total of whole and fractional shares in the account by the number of installments remaining to be paid, including the current installment. If the Eligible Employee is deceased, the distribution shall be payable to the beneficiary or survivor of the Eligible Employee in the form payable to the Eligible Employee hereunder. In the event of one or more distributions to an Eligible Employee under this Article III, the Committee shall specify whether such distributions will be in cash or in TCF Financial stock and for purposes of the distribution the value of such stock shall be equal to its value on or about the first day of the calendar month in which a distribution occurs. IV. SUPPLEMENTAL BENEFITS RELATED TO THE TCF PENSION PLAN.

immediately following the Employee's termination of employment with succeeding amounts paid on each January 15th thereafter. The amount of each installment under (i) and (ii) shall be determined each year by dividing the total of whole and fractional shares in the account by the number of installments remaining to be paid, including the current installment. If the Eligible Employee is deceased, the distribution shall be payable to the beneficiary or survivor of the Eligible Employee in the form payable to the Eligible Employee hereunder. In the event of one or more distributions to an Eligible Employee under this Article III, the Committee shall specify whether such distributions will be in cash or in TCF Financial stock and for purposes of the distribution the value of such stock shall be equal to its value on or about the first day of the calendar month in which a distribution occurs. IV. SUPPLEMENTAL BENEFITS RELATED TO THE TCF PENSION PLAN. (a) BENEFITS. (i) For pension benefits accrued on or before August 31, 1990, each Eligible Employee shall receive as a supplemental pension benefit under this Plan the actuarial equivalent of the difference between the amount such employee will receive in the form of a normal pension under the TCF Pension Plan (increased by any other supplements to such Plan provided to such Employee in any other pension supplementary agreements) and the amount such Employee would have received in the form of a normal pension under the TCF Pension Plan (and such other supplements) in the absence of the Restrictions defined in subsection (b) below. The normal pension provided under Section IV(a) shall be determined for each Eligible Employee with respect to the TCF Pension Plan as in effect on August 31, 1990. This pension shall be paid in a lump sum which is the actuarial equivalent of the form of the normal pension provided under the TCF Pension Plan as in effect on August 31, 1990. The lump sum value of supplemental pension benefits attributable to service prior to September 1, 1990 shall be determined in accordance with the actuarial assumptions in use for such purpose under the TCF Pension Plan as in effect on or about the date the supplemental pension benefit is paid, determined in a manner consistent with the way such determinations are made under the TCF Pension Plan. (ii) With respect to benefits accrued under the TCF Cash Balance Pension Plan on and after September 1, 1990, the supplemental pension benefit under this Plan shall be equal to an Account Balance which is 0 on September 1, 1990, and thereafter is increased each month by the difference between the pay credit provided to the Eligible Employee for such month under the TCF Cash Balance Pension Plan and the amount such Employee would have received as a pay credit for such month in the absence of the Restrictions defined in subsection (b) below. The Eligible Employee's Account Balance shall also be increased each month by the interest factor applicable to account balances under Section 4.6 of the TCF Cash Balance Pension Plan as of said month.

(b) "Restrictions" means: (i) limitations on benefits provided in Internal Revenue Code Section 415 (currently generally $90,000 in annual benefits); (ii) limitations of Covered Compensation under the TCF Pension Plan to the dollar limits provided in Internal Revenue Code Section 401(a)(17); and (iii) limitations on Covered Compensation occurring as a result of the anti-discrimination provisions of Internal Revenue Code Sections 401(a)(5)(B) and 414(s). For purposes of this sub-paragraph (iii), a limitation on covered compensation shall be deemed to occur with respect to any amounts which are deferred under the TCF Financial Executive Deferred Compensation Plan or the TCF Financial Senior Officer Deferred Compensation Plan, and which are excluded from covered compensation under the TCF Pension Plan as a result of Internal Revenue Code Sections 401(a)(5)(B) and 414(s).

For purposes of this sub-paragraph (iii), a limitation on covered compensation shall be deemed to occur with respect to any amounts which are deferred under the TCF Financial Executive Deferred Compensation Plan or the TCF Financial Senior Officer Deferred Compensation Plan, and which are excluded from covered compensation under the TCF Pension Plan as a result of Internal Revenue Code Sections 401(a)(5)(B) and 414(s). (c) PAYMENT OF BENEFITS. The Eligible Employee's supplemental pensionbenefit under this Section IV shall be paid in a lump sum twelve months after termination of employment of the Eligible Employee or, in the case of normal, late or early retirement under the TCF Pension Plan, or death, the amount shall be paid in a lump sum as soon as practicable thereafter. In the case of death of the Eligible Employee, such lump sum shall be paid to the Employee's Beneficiary, as defined in the TCF Pension Plan. V. COMMITTEE. The Committee shall have full power to construe, interpret and administer this Plan, including to make any determination required under this Plan and to make such rules and regulations as it deems advisable for the operation of this Plan. The Committee shall have sole and absolute discretion in the performance of their powers and duties under this Plan. A majority of the Committee shall constitute a quorum. Actions of the Committee shall be by a majority of persons constituting a quorum and eligible to vote on an issue. Meetings may be held in person or by telephone. Action by the Committee may be taken in writing without a meeting provided such action is executed by all members of the Committee. To the extent it is feasible to do so, determinations, rules and regulations of the Committee under this Plan shall be consistent with similar determinations, rules and regulations of the Stockshare Plan (Article III benefits) or TCF Pension Plan (Article IV benefits). All determinations of the Committee shall be final, conclusive and binding unless found by a court of competent jurisdiction to have been arbitrary and capricious. The Committee shall have authority to designate officers of TCF Financial and to delegate authority to such officers to receive documents which are required to be filed with the Committee, to execute and provide directions to the Trustee and other administrators, and to do such other actions as the Committee may specify on its behalf,

and any such actions undertaken by such officers shall be deemed to have the same authority and effect as if done by the Committee itself. VI BENEFITS UNFUNDED. The rights of beneficiaries, survivors and participants to benefits from this Plan are solely as unsecured creditors of the Employer. Benefits payable under this Plan shall be payable from the general assets of the Employer and there shall be no trust fund or other assets secured for the payment of such benefits. In its discretion, the Employer may purchase or set aside assets, including annuity policies, to provide for the payment of benefits hereunder but such assets shall in all cases remain assets of the Employer. This Plan constitutes a mere promise by the Employers to make benefit payments in the future, and it is intended to be unfunded for tax purposes and for purposes of Title I of ERISA. VII. BENEFICIARIES AND SURVIVORS. An Eligible Employee's beneficiary or survivor under Article III of this Plan shall be the same as the person(s) designated as such pursuant to or under the provisions of the Stockshare Plan, unless the employee has

BENEFICIARIES AND SURVIVORS. An Eligible Employee's beneficiary or survivor under Article III of this Plan shall be the same as the person(s) designated as such pursuant to or under the provisions of the Stockshare Plan, unless the employee has designated in writing and filed with the Committee a different beneficiary for this Plan. An Eligible Employee's beneficiary or survivor under Article IV of this Plan shall be the same as the person(s) designated as such pursuant to or under the provisions of the TCF Pension Plan, unless the Employee has designated in writing and filed with the Committee a different beneficiary for this Plan.

Any elections with respect to Deferred Amounts of salary shall be exercised in writing by the Employee prior to the latest to occur of the following: (i) the beginning of the calendar year for which the salary is to be earned; (ii) such Employee's first day of employment service in that year; or (iii) the first day of the calendar month next following the date the Employee first becomes eligible to participate in the Plan. Any election with respect to Deferred Amounts of incentive compensation shall be made no later than December 31 of the calendar year preceding the calendar year in which the periods of service are rendered for which the incentive compensation is to be paid. An election of Deferred Amounts, once made, is irrevocable, except as provided in paragraph 6 hereof. c. Deferred Amounts shall be subject to the rules set forth in this document, and each Employee shall have the right to receive cash payments on account of previously Deferred Amounts only in the amounts and under the circumstances hereinafter set forth. a. Employees eligible to participate in this Plan are Employees of a Company who hold the office of Senior Vice President of TCF Financial Corporation or TCF National Bank Minnesota or President or Executive Vice President of an insured institution subsidiary of TCF Financial or President of a direct or indirect subsidiary of TCF Financial; PROVIDED, that an employee who is eligible to participate in the TCF Financial Executive Deferred Compensation Plan shall not be eligible to participate in this Plan. Effective on and after February 9, 1995, employees of Great Lakes National Bank Michigan ("Great Lakes") or Great Lakes National Bank Ohio, are eligible for this plan if they hold the officer position of Senior Vice President or above and are selected for eligibility in the plan by the Chairman and President of Great Lakes. Effective on and after September 1, 1997, the Executive Vice President, Senior Vice President and Vice President, Sales and Marketing of Winthrop Resources Corporation are eligible to participate in this Plan. Notwithstanding the foregoing, individuals who become employees of a Company as a result of a merger or acquisition shall not be eligible Employees

under this Plan unless and until TCF Financial has adopted a resolution or amended this Plan to identify them as eligible Employees. 2. PERSONNEL COMMITTEE. The Committee (the Committee") shall consist of such members of the Personnel Committee of the Board of Directors of TCF Financial Corporation who qualify as non-employee directors from time to time under Rule 16b-3 of Securities and Exchange Commission. Full power and authority to construe, interpret, and administer this Plan document shall be vested in the Committee. The Committee shall have full power and authority to make each determination provided for in this Plan document, and in this connection, to promulgate such rules and regulations as the Committee considers necessary or appropriate for the implementation and management of this Plan. The Committee shall have sole and absolute discretion in the performance of its powers and duties under this Plan. All determinations made by the Committee shall be final,

under this Plan unless and until TCF Financial has adopted a resolution or amended this Plan to identify them as eligible Employees. 2. PERSONNEL COMMITTEE. The Committee (the Committee") shall consist of such members of the Personnel Committee of the Board of Directors of TCF Financial Corporation who qualify as non-employee directors from time to time under Rule 16b-3 of Securities and Exchange Commission. Full power and authority to construe, interpret, and administer this Plan document shall be vested in the Committee. The Committee shall have full power and authority to make each determination provided for in this Plan document, and in this connection, to promulgate such rules and regulations as the Committee considers necessary or appropriate for the implementation and management of this Plan. The Committee shall have sole and absolute discretion in the performance of its powers and duties under this Plan. All determinations made by the Committee shall be final, conclusive and binding upon the Companies, each Employee and former Employee and their designees, unless found by a court of competent jurisdiction to have been arbitrary and capricious. The Committee shall have authority to designate officers of TCF Financial and to delegate authority to such officers to receive documents which are required to be filed with the Committee, to execute and provide directions to the Trustee and other administrators, and to do such other actions as the Committee may specify on its behalf, and any such actions undertaken by such officers shall be deemed to have the same authority and effect as if done by the Committee itself. 3. DEFERRED COMPENSATION ACCOUNTS. Each Company shall establish on its books a separate account ("Account") for each of its Employees who becomes a participant in this Plan, and each such Account shall be maintained as follows: a. Each Account shall be credited with the Deferred Amounts elected by the Employee for whom such Account is established as of the date on which such Deferred Amount would otherwise have been paid to the Employee. b. To the extent that a Company has made contributions to the Trust described in paragraph 4 with respect to an Employee's Deferred Amounts, the Employee's Account shall thereafter be adjusted as described in paragraph 4. To the extent such contributions have not been made with respect to an Employee's Deferred Amounts, and within 30 days after the date on which such Deferred Amounts are credited to an Employee's Account, they shall be deemed to have been invested in such investments as shall be permitted by the Committee and as the Employee shall direct. While an Employee's Account is deemed to be so invested, it shall be credited with all interest, dividends (whether in stock, cash, or other property), stock splits, or other property that would have been received if the Deferred Amounts had actually been so invested. All cash deemed to have been received with respect to investments deemed to have been made for an Employee's Account shall be deemed to have been reinvested in such investments as the Employee shall direct as of a date selected by the Committee, which date shall be not less than 30 days after receipt of such direction, and the balance credited to an Employee's Account as of any date shall be equal to the fair market value of the investments deemed to have been made for such Account as of such date. c. Although the value of an Employee's Account is to be measured by the value of and income from certain investments, the value of and income from such investments are merely a measuring device to determine the payments to be made to

each Employee hereunder. Each Employee, and each other recipient of an Employee's Deferred Amounts pursuant to paragraph 7, shall be and remain an unsecured general creditor of the Company by which he is employed with respect to any payments due and owing to such Employee hereunder. If a Company should from time to time, in its discretion, actually purchase the investments deemed to have been made for an Employee's Account, either directly or through the trust described in paragraph 4, such investments shall be solely for the Company's or such trust's own account, and the Employees shall have no right, title or interest therein. 4. TRUST. TCF Financial may establish a trust (of the type commonly known as a "rabbi trust") to aid in the accumulation of assets for payment of Deferred Amounts. Upon the establishment of such a Trust, the amounts credited to the Employee's Accounts shall thereafter be adjusted as follows: a. Each Company may, in its discretion, contribute to the trust an amount equal to the Deferred Amounts of the

each Employee hereunder. Each Employee, and each other recipient of an Employee's Deferred Amounts pursuant to paragraph 7, shall be and remain an unsecured general creditor of the Company by which he is employed with respect to any payments due and owing to such Employee hereunder. If a Company should from time to time, in its discretion, actually purchase the investments deemed to have been made for an Employee's Account, either directly or through the trust described in paragraph 4, such investments shall be solely for the Company's or such trust's own account, and the Employees shall have no right, title or interest therein. 4. TRUST. TCF Financial may establish a trust (of the type commonly known as a "rabbi trust") to aid in the accumulation of assets for payment of Deferred Amounts. Upon the establishment of such a Trust, the amounts credited to the Employee's Accounts shall thereafter be adjusted as follows: a. Each Company may, in its discretion, contribute to the trust an amount equal to the Deferred Amounts of the Employees employed by such Company within five business days after the Deferred Amount is earned by the Employee. The assets of the trust shall be invested in such investments as may be permitted by the Committee and directed by an Employee for his own Account. Insofar as the trustee of the Trust ("Trustee") has acquired an investment for an Employee's Account pursuant to such directions, the Employee shall have the right to determine confidentially whether such investment will be tendered in a tender or exchange offer, and to direct the Trustee accordingly. The terms of the trust shall be consistent with the terms of this Plan. The Trustee shall be a corporate trustee independent of the Company or, if individual(s), shall not include at any time any person who is or has been eligible for participation in this Plan. Nothing herein shall be construed as requiring the Company to make any contributions to the trust. To the extent such contributions are actually made, the trust assets shall remain subject to the claims of the Company's general creditors in the event of it insolvency. b. The trust shall provide for separate accounts in the name of each Employee who has elected a Deferred Amount. Except as provided in paragraph 4.d., from and after the date as of which such accounts are established, the balances in the Accounts established for Employees pursuant to this Plan shall be equal to the balances credited to such separate accounts. Each such separate account shall then be adjusted as follows: (i) Contributions made by the Companies to the trust on behalf of such Employee, and all dividends or other distributions made with respect to property allocated to such separate account, shall be credited to such separate account and invested as the Employee shall direct. (ii) Each Employee's separate account shall be increased by the amount of any increase in the fair market value, as determined by the Trustee, of any assets allocated to such separate account, and shall be decreased by any decrease in the fair market value of such assets, as determined by the Trustee. (iii) Each Employee's separate account shall be reduced by any distributions made to the Employee from the trust which are chargeable to such separate account. c. An Employee's right to direct the investment of the Employee's separate

account shall continue during any period of distribution subsequent to the Employee's termination of employment in the same manner as if the Employee had continued as an active Employee, although the Committee may, in its discretion, add additional registered mutual funds or collective or common trustee funds which are available only for the accounts of terminated Employees if the Committee deems such funds to be particularly appropriate or suitable for such accounts. d. The adjustments described in this paragraph 4 shall only be made to an Employee's Account to the extent that a Company has made contributions to the trust pursuant to this paragraph 4. If for any reason such contributions have not been made then, and only to that extent, the Employee's Account shall be adjusted as provided in paragraph 3.b. 5. PAYMENT OF DEFERRED AMOUNTS. Not later than the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Committee following the termination of an Employee's employment or disability (as defined herein), the Committee shall direct the Trustee to commence distribution of the amounts credited to such Employee's

account shall continue during any period of distribution subsequent to the Employee's termination of employment in the same manner as if the Employee had continued as an active Employee, although the Committee may, in its discretion, add additional registered mutual funds or collective or common trustee funds which are available only for the accounts of terminated Employees if the Committee deems such funds to be particularly appropriate or suitable for such accounts. d. The adjustments described in this paragraph 4 shall only be made to an Employee's Account to the extent that a Company has made contributions to the trust pursuant to this paragraph 4. If for any reason such contributions have not been made then, and only to that extent, the Employee's Account shall be adjusted as provided in paragraph 3.b. 5. PAYMENT OF DEFERRED AMOUNTS. Not later than the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Committee following the termination of an Employee's employment or disability (as defined herein), the Committee shall direct the Trustee to commence distribution of the amounts credited to such Employee's Account. Commencing within the 30 day period following the Committee's direction, the balance credited to the Employee's Account shall be paid as follows: a. For distributions commencing on or after January 1, 1997 (or distributions commencing on or after January 1, 1995 after a termination of employment due to death or disability), payment shall be in fifteen annual installments except that the Committee may determine on a case by case basis to approve a different payment schedule for an Employee after taking into account whether such a schedule would be in the best interests of TCF Financial, including whether the Employee has executed or will execute a non-competition agreement in form and scope reasonably acceptable to the Committee, and such other factors as the Committee considers appropriate in each case. Any alternative payment schedule approved by the Committee under this paragraph 5.a. may be in the form of installments over such period as the Committee selects, in the form of a lump sum, or any combination of installments and lump sum payments as the Committee determines to be in TCF Financial's best interests. For distributions commencing prior to January 1, 1997 and not after a termination of employment due to death or disability, and for distributions from the Accounts of Employees who did not consent to the terms of this paragraph 5.a., the balance in the Account shall be paid as provided in paragraph h of this section. b. The first payment under paragraph 5.a. shall be paid on a date selected by the Committee which is no later than 30 days after the Committee's direction as to the form and timing of distributions is made, or if no date is selected, the later of 30 days after the Committee's action or 30 days after the Employee's termination of employment. Succeeding installments (if any) shall be paid on January 31 of each calendar year following the calendar year in which the first payment was made. c. Each payment shall be made in cash or in kind as the Committee, in its discretion, shall determine, or if the Committee makes no instruction, the payment shall be in cash, except that any portion of the Account which is invested in securities of TCF Financial shall be distributed in kind. Each annual installment payment shall have a value equal to the amount credited to Employee's Account, as reported on the latest available account statement as of the first day of the calendar month in which the installment is paid, multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is one and the denominator of which is the number if installments remaining to be paid, including the current installment.

d. For purposes of this section, an Employee's employment is considered to terminate as of the date which is the later of (i) Employee's last date of service for the Company, or (ii) the last date on which there is an employment relationship between the Employee and a Company. e. For purposes of this section, an Employee is disabled as of the date the Employee is eligible for payments under the long term disability plan of a Company. f. In the event installment payments commence and any installments are unpaid at the time of Employee's death, the payments shall be made at the times and in such amounts as if Employee were living to the persons specified in paragraph 7.a. g. For purposes of this section, an Employee's termination of employment is considered a retirement if it occurs

d. For purposes of this section, an Employee's employment is considered to terminate as of the date which is the later of (i) Employee's last date of service for the Company, or (ii) the last date on which there is an employment relationship between the Employee and a Company. e. For purposes of this section, an Employee is disabled as of the date the Employee is eligible for payments under the long term disability plan of a Company. f. In the event installment payments commence and any installments are unpaid at the time of Employee's death, the payments shall be made at the times and in such amounts as if Employee were living to the persons specified in paragraph 7.a. g. For purposes of this section, an Employee's termination of employment is considered a retirement if it occurs on or after the date the employee has attained age 55. h. For distributions to Employees who did not consent to the terms of paragraph 5.a. or distributions otherwise not subject to the terms of Paragraph 5.a., distribution shall occur on or about the 30th day after the Employee's termination of employment and shall consist of a single lump sum equal to the total value of the Employee's Account unless the termination of employment was due to retirement or disability (as defined herein), in which case the distribution shall be in five annual installments PROVIDED THAT the Committee shall reduce the number of the installments as necessary to provide for annual payments of at least $15,000 or, if the value of the Employee's Account is less than $15,000 as of any annual installment payment date, the Account shall be paid in full as of such installment payment date. Distributions shall be in the form of cash, except that any portion of the Account invested in securities of TCF Financial shall be distributed in kind, unless the Committee directs otherwise, and the value of any portion of the account distributed in cash shall be equal to the cash received upon its liquidation by the Trustee, provided that such liquidation occurs on the latest practicable date prior to the distribution date. i. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 5 or any payment schedule approved by the Committee pursuant to this Section 5 and regardless of whether payments have commenced under this Section 5, in the event that the Internal Revenue Service should finally determine with respect to an Employee who has terminated employment with the Company that part or all of the value of the Employee's Deferred Amounts or Plan Account which have not actually been distributed to the Employee, or that part or all of a related Trust Account which has not actually been distributed to the Employee, is nevertheless required to be included in the Employee's gross income for federal and/or State income tax purposes, then the Deferred Amounts or the Account or the part thereof that was determined to be includible in gross income shall be distributed to the Employee in a lump sum as soon as practicable after such determination without any action or approval by the Committee. A "final determination" of the Internal Revenue Service for purposes of this paragraph 5.i. is a determination in writing by said Service ordering the payment of additional tax, reporting of additional gross income or otherwise requiring Plan amounts to be included in gross income, which is not appealable or which the Employee does not appeal within the time prescribed for appeals. 6. EMERGENCY PAYMENTS. In the event of an "unforeseeable emergency" as determined hereafter, the Committee may determine the amounts payable under paragraph 5 hereof and pay all or a part of such amounts without regard to the payment dates provided in

paragraph 5 to the extent the Committee determines that such action is necessary in light of immediate and heavy needs of the Employee (or his beneficiary) occasioned by severe financial hardship. For the purposes of this paragraph 6, an "unforeseeable emergency" is a severe financial hardship to the Employee resulting from a sudden and unexpected illness or accident of the Employee or beneficiary, or of a dependent (as defined in Section 152 (a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended) of the Employee or beneficiary, loss of the Employee's or beneficiary's property due to casualty, or other similar extraordinary and unforeseeable circumstances arising as a result of events beyond the control of the Employee or beneficiary. Payments shall not be made pursuant to this paragraph 6 to the extent that such hardship is or may be relieved: (a) through reimbursement or compensation by insurance or otherwise, (b) by liquidation of the Employee's or beneficiary's assets, to the extent the liquidation of such assets would not itself cause severe financial hardship, or (c) by cessation of the Employee's deferrals under the Plan. Such action shall be taken only if the Employee (or the Employee's legal

paragraph 5 to the extent the Committee determines that such action is necessary in light of immediate and heavy needs of the Employee (or his beneficiary) occasioned by severe financial hardship. For the purposes of this paragraph 6, an "unforeseeable emergency" is a severe financial hardship to the Employee resulting from a sudden and unexpected illness or accident of the Employee or beneficiary, or of a dependent (as defined in Section 152 (a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended) of the Employee or beneficiary, loss of the Employee's or beneficiary's property due to casualty, or other similar extraordinary and unforeseeable circumstances arising as a result of events beyond the control of the Employee or beneficiary. Payments shall not be made pursuant to this paragraph 6 to the extent that such hardship is or may be relieved: (a) through reimbursement or compensation by insurance or otherwise, (b) by liquidation of the Employee's or beneficiary's assets, to the extent the liquidation of such assets would not itself cause severe financial hardship, or (c) by cessation of the Employee's deferrals under the Plan. Such action shall be taken only if the Employee (or the Employee's legal representatives or successors) signs an application describing fully the circumstances which are deemed to justify the payment, together with an estimate of the amounts necessary to prevent such hardship, which application shall be approved by the Committee after making such inquiries as the Committee deems necessary or appropriate. 7. METHOD OF PAYMENTS. a. In the event of an Employee's death, payments shall be made to the persons (including a trustee or trustees) named in the last written instrument signed by the Employee and received by the Committee prior to the Employee's death, or if the Employee fails to so name any person, the amounts shall be paid to the Employee's estate or the appropriate distributee thereof. The Committee, the Company, and the Trustee shall be fully protected in making any payments due hereunder in accordance with what the Committee believes to be such last written instrument received by it. b. Payments due to a legally incompetent person may be made in such of the following ways as the Committee shall determine: (i) directly to such incompetent person, (ii) to the legal representative of such incompetent person, or (iii) to some near relative of the incompetent person to be used for the latter's benefit. c. Except as otherwise provided in paragraphs 7.a. and b., all payments to persons entitled to benefits hereunder shall be made to such persons in person or upon their personal receipt or endorsement, and shall not be grantable, transferable, or otherwise assignable in anticipation of payment thereof, in whole or in part, by the voluntary or involuntary acts of any such persons, or by operation of law, and shall not be pledged, encumbered, or otherwise liable or taken for any obligation of such person. d. All payments to persons entitled to benefits hereunder shall be made out of the general assets, and shall be the sole obligations, of the Employer Companies, except to the extent that such payments are made out of the trust described in paragraph 4.

8. CLAIMS PROCEDURE. a. If a claim for benefits made by any person (the "Applicant") is denied, the Committee shall furnish to the Applicant within 90 days after its receipt of such claim (or within 180 days after such receipt if special circumstances require an extension of time ) a written notice which: (i) specifies the reason for the denial, (ii) refers to the pertinent provisions of the Plan on which the denial is based, (iii) describes any additional material or information necessary for the perfection of the claim and explains why such material or information is necessary, and (iv) explains the claim review procedures. b. Upon the written request of the Applicant submitted within 60 days after his receipt of such written notice, the Committee shall afford the Applicant a full and fair review of the decision denying the claim and, if so requested: (i) permit the Applicant to review any documents which are pertinent to the claim, (ii) permit the Applicant to submit to the Committee issues and comments in writing, and (iii) afford the Applicant an opportunity to meet

MISCELLANEOUS. a. Except as limited by paragraph 7.c. and except that an Employee shall have a continuing power to designate a new recipient in the event of the Employee's death at any time prior to such death without the consent or approval of any person theretofore named as the Employee's recipient by an instrument meeting the requirements of paragraph 7.a., this document shall be binding upon the inure to the benefit of each Company, the Employees, their legal representatives, successors and assigns, and all persons entitled to benefits hereunder. b. Any notice given in connection with this document shall be in writing and shall be delivered in person or by registered mail or overnight delivery service, return receipt requested. Any notice given by registered mail or overnight delivery service shall be deemed to have been given upon the date of delivery indicated on the return receipt, if correctly addressed. c. Nothing in this document shall interfere with the rights of any Employee to participate or share in any profit sharing or pension plan which is now in force or which may at some future time become a recognized plan of any Company. d. Nothing in this document shall be construed as an employment agreement nor as in any way impairing the right of any Company to terminate an Employee's employment at will. e. This Plan constitutes a mere promise by the Company to make benefit payments in the future, and it is intended to be unfunded for tax purposes and for the purposes of Title I

of ERISA. The rights of an Employee or beneficiary to receive benefit payments hereunder are solely those of an unsecured general creditor of the Company. 10. ELECTIONS BY EMPLOYEES TO TRANSFER BETWEEN FUNDS. Employees may elect to liquidate funds in their Deferred Compensation Accounts under Paragraph 3 and reinvest them as directed provided that any investment election shall be exercised in writing by the Employee and approved by the Committee or its approved representative under such terms and conditions as the Committee deems appropriate. 11. SPECIAL PROVISIONS REGARDING OSPIP AND DEFERRED STOCK. Effective for deferrals of incentive compensation with respect to the 1992 calendar year and thereafter, Employees' deferrals of incentive compensation payable in the form of common stock of TCF Financial pursuant to the Officer's Stock Performance Incentive Plan ("OSPIP") or otherwise subject to issuance as Deferred Stock under the Stock Option and Incentive Plan of TCF Financial , the TCF Financial 1995 Stock Incentive Plan, or any successor

of ERISA. The rights of an Employee or beneficiary to receive benefit payments hereunder are solely those of an unsecured general creditor of the Company. 10. ELECTIONS BY EMPLOYEES TO TRANSFER BETWEEN FUNDS. Employees may elect to liquidate funds in their Deferred Compensation Accounts under Paragraph 3 and reinvest them as directed provided that any investment election shall be exercised in writing by the Employee and approved by the Committee or its approved representative under such terms and conditions as the Committee deems appropriate. 11. SPECIAL PROVISIONS REGARDING OSPIP AND DEFERRED STOCK. Effective for deferrals of incentive compensation with respect to the 1992 calendar year and thereafter, Employees' deferrals of incentive compensation payable in the form of common stock of TCF Financial pursuant to the Officer's Stock Performance Incentive Plan ("OSPIP") or otherwise subject to issuance as Deferred Stock under the Stock Option and Incentive Plan of TCF Financial , the TCF Financial 1995 Stock Incentive Plan, or any successor stock option plan or restricted stock plan of TCF Financial shall be credited to the Employee's account as "Deferred Stock" and the Employee shall be prohibited from making any investment election with respect to such Deferred Stock until the date or dates specified in an award agreement entered into pursuant to the Stock Option and Incentive Plan by TCF Financial, subject to acceleration upon the occurrence of events as specified in such agreement. Upon and after such date or dates, the Deferred Stock credits to the Employee's account shall be subject to investment elections the same as any other credits in the Employee's accounts. In the event TCF Financial so notifies the Trustee, dividend credits on Deferred Stock shall be withheld until such time as the Deferred Stock becomes subject to investment elections. In the event the Employee's employment terminates or in the event of the Employee's disability, any Deferred Stock credits not yet subject to investment election by the Employee shall be reduced to zero and no benefits shall be payable with respect to them. Deferred Stock credits shall not be distributable pursuant to paragraph 6 (Emergency Payments) until they are subject to investment election by the Employee. 12. TERMINATION OR AMENDMENT. The Board of Directors of TCF Financial may, in its discretion, terminate or amend this document from time to time; PROVIDED, however, that no such termination or amendment shall (without the Employee's consent) alter any Employee's right to payments of amounts previously credited to such Employee's Account or delay the time or times at which an Employee is entitled to receive payments with respect to his Deferred Amounts, unless such termination or amendment is necessary as a condition of receiving a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service that Employees' Deferred Amounts will not be included in their gross income for Federal income tax purposes until such time as they are actually paid or otherwise made available to the Employee.

Succeeding installments (if any) shall be paid on January 31 of each calendar year following the calendar year in which the first payment was made, except that an executive who has terminated employment and commenced receiving payments may elect each year to have the payment otherwise due on January 31 of the next succeeding year paid as monthly installments instead, with each payment made on the last day of each month. Any such election shall be made in writing and delivered to the Committee on or before December 1 prior to any year for which it is to be effective. Such election may also indicate the assets to be liquidated in connection with each monthly payment. The amount of each monthly payment shall be equal to the amount that would otherwise be paid in one payment in January, divided by 12. Any assets to be liquidated in order to pay monthly benefits shall be liquidated on the last practicable date prior to the installment's payment date. In no event shall this paragraph be construed as allowing the executive to lengthen or shorten the number of years over which his or her benefits will be paid; the election herein pertains only to timing of payments within a year.

EXHIBIT 10(p) AMENDMENT TO TRUST AGREEMENT FOR TCF FINANCIAL SENIOR OFFICER DEFERRED COMPENSATION PLAN The Trust Agreement for the TCF Financial Senior Officer Deferred Compensation Plan is hereby amended effective November 1, 1997 to replace the existing Article 9 as follows: ARTICLE 9 AMENDMENT AND TERMINATION OF THE TRUST SECTION 9.1. The Board of Directors of TCF Financial may, in its discretion, terminate or amend this Agreement from time to time; PROVIDED, however, that no such termination or amendment shall (without the Employee's consent) alter any Employee's right to payments of amounts previously credited to such Employee's Account or delay the time or times at which an Employee is entitled to receive payments with respect to his Deferred Amounts, unless such termination or amendment is necessary as a condition of receiving a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service that Employees' Deferred Amounts will not be included in their gross income for Federal income tax purposes until such time as they are actually paid or otherwise made available to the Employee. SECTION 9.2. This Trust shall not be terminated until such time as all of the Companies' obligation to make distributions pursuant to the Plan have been fully discharged unless all of the Plan's participants (excluding any terminated participants and beneficiaries then receiving distribution pursuant to the Plan, other than terminated participants entitled to a lump sum distribution) shall consent in writing to an earlier termination. If all of the Plan's participants do not consent to an early termination, the Trust shall terminate with respect to such consenting participants (and with respect to participants or beneficiaries whose consent is not required), but shall continue in effect with respect to the nonconsenting participants. Upon a termination or partial termination of the Trust, the Trust assets, if any, that remain in the accounts established for participants in the Plan (or for the consenting participants (and the participants or beneficiaries whose consent is not required), if fewer than all of the Plan's participants have consented to a termination for which the participants' consent is required) shall be paid or distributed to TCF Financial or its successor in interest. The Trust Agreement is amended effective October 20, 1997 to replace Article 11 with the following: ARTICLE 11 ELECTIONS BY EMPLOYEES TO TRANSFER BETWEEN FUNDS SECTION 11.1. Effective October 20, 1997, the Company shall permit investment elections transferring between funds in the Trust and the Trustee shall provide for investment elections provided under Paragraph 10 of the Plan, as amended.

ELIGIBILITY - Each Participant shall be given a copy of this 1998 Management Incentive Plan for Executives (the "Plan") and required to sign an acknowledgment of its terms. The participants in the Plan are those approved by the Personnel/Affirmative Action Committee (the "Committee"*): the Chairman, Vice Chairs, President and Executive Vice Presidents of TCF Financial. 2. All participants will be initially evaluated by the Chairman of TCF Financial (the "Chairman") who will forward all recommendations to the Committee for approval. The Committee evaluates the performance of the Chairman. The Committee will consider the Return on Average Assets ("ROA") performance and shall also evaluate all other matters it deems appropriate in its sole discretion, subject to limits imposed on such discretion under the Performance-Based Plan. Evaluations will be performed pursuant to the terms of the TCF Performance-Based Compensation Policy for Covered Executive Officers (the "Performance-Based Plan") in the case of Covered Executive Officers (as defined in that Plan). 3. The criteria for awards (subject to paragraph 4) is as follows: a. The amount of incentive payable to a participant shall be determined by the achievement of ROA financial goals on Exhibit A attached. ROA will be calculated as provided in the Performance-Based Plan rounded to the nearest one-hundredth. The bonus percentage shall be calculated, in the case of ROA achievement which falls between goals, by interpolation as follows: The amount by which the ROA achievement exceeds the goal shall be divided by the amount between the ROA goal exceeded and the next ROA goal. The result shall be stated in the form of a percentage which shall be multiplied by the total percentage points between ROA goals. The result shall be added to the bonus percentage corresponding to the ROA goal that was exceeded. 4. The Committee may, in its discretion, reduce, defer or eliminate the amount of the incentive determined under paragraph 3.a. of this Agreement for a Covered Executive Officer in the Performance-Based Plan. In addition, for participants who are not subject to the Performance-Based Plan, the Committee may in its discretion increase the amount of the incentive calculated under paragraph 3.a. of this Agreement. The Committee has authority to make interpretations under this Plan and to approve the calculation under Paragraph 3.a. Incentive compensation will be paid in cash as soon as possible following approval of awards by the Personnel Committee. Except for Covered Executive Officers, the participant must be employed by TCF Financial (or the same subsidiary as employed by on the date of this Acknowledgment) on the date the incentive is paid in the same job position as the position for which the incentive was earned in order to receive the incentive payment. However, where the participant has transferred to another position within TCF, the Committee may in its discretion determine to pay part, none, or all of the incentive based on any factors the Committee considers to be relevant. 5. The Committee may amend this Plan from time to time as it deems appropriate, except that no provision of the Performance-Based Plan may be amended except in accordance with its terms. This Plan shall not be construed as a contract of employment, nor shall it be considered a term of employment, nor as a binding contract to pay awards. The undersigned acknowledges he/she is employed "at will". 6. This Plan is effective for service on or after January 1, 1998 and supersedes and replaces the prior Management Incentive Compensation Plan and any other prior incentive arrangements with respect to executives in this Plan. The Plan may not be amended except in writing signed by TCF Financial, the employer (if other than TCF Financial) and the executive. ACKNOWLEDGMENT

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event the Committee should determine in good faith, and after providing Employee with an opportunity to present any evidence he may wish to present, that Employee is acting in violation of his NonCompetition, NonSolicitation, Confidentiality or other ongoing obligations under this Employment Contract, then the Committee may reduce or terminate payments to Employee under this Section 4.03, including immediate cancellation of any stock options or restricted stock grants to Employee which may be outstanding. Company agrees that any amounts not paid under this Section 4.03 as a result of any such action on the part of the Committee shall reduce the amount of any legal damages to which Company might otherwise be entitled.

If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity and enforceability of all other applications of that provision and of all other provisions and applications hereof shall not in any way be affected or impaired. 9.9 WAIVER. No provisions of this Agreement may be modified, waived or discharged unless such waiver, modification or discharge is agreed to in writing and signed by Executive and such officer as may be specifically designated by the Board of Directors of TCF Illinois. The failure of TCF Illinois or Executive at any time or times to enforce its rights under the Agreement strictly in accordance with the same shall not be construed as having created a custom in any way or manner contrary to the specific provisions of this Agreement or as having in any way or manner modified or waived the same. No waiver by either party hereto at any time of any breach by the other party hereto of, or compliance with, any condition or provision of this Agreement to be performed by such other party shall be deemed a waiver of similar or dissimilar provisions or conditions at the same or any prior or subsequent time. 9.10 COUNTERPARTS. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument. 9.11 TCF FINANCIAL ACTION. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, any action permitted or required to be taken by TCF Illinois may instead, at TCF Financial's option, be taken or withheld by TCF Financial, and furthermore, any such action taken or withheld by TCF Financial shall in each particular case be deemed to constitute action taken by or withheld by TCF Illinois and shall further be deemed to preempt any inconsistent action taken or withheld by TCF Illinois in such case. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have executed this Agreement, as of the day and year first above written.

EXHIBIT 13 DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS TCF Financial Corporation is a Minneapolis-based national bank holding company with nearly $10 billion in assets. TCF's banks are based in Minnesota, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Colorado as TCF National Bank, and in Michigan as Great Lakes National Bank. Other TCF affiliates include business-equipment leasing, consumer finance, mortgage banking, title insurance, annuity and mutual fund sales companies. TCF has a proven community banking philosophy focused on creating franchise and shareholder value. We emphasize higher-yielding consumer and commercial loans and leases, and lower interest-cost checking, savings, and money market deposit accounts. Since 1992, these POWER ASSETS-SM- and POWER LIABILITIESSM- have more than doubled over their originally reported balances. That growth has fueled our core earnings improvement and created shareholder value. A $100 investment in TCF stock at the end of 1992 would have grown to $525 at year-end 1997 with dividends reinvested. The same investment in the Standard & Poor's 500 Composite Stock Price Index, which is comprised of 500 widely held stocks, would have been worth $251. TABLE OF CONTENTS

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Financial Review FINANCIAL REVIEW The financial review presents management's discussion and analysis of the consolidated financial condition and results of operations of TCF Financial Corporation ("TCF" or the "Company"). This review should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and other financial data beginning on page 34. On September 4, 1997, TCF acquired all of the outstanding common stock of Standard Financial, Inc. ("Standard"), a community-oriented thrift institution with $2.6 billion in assets, $1.9 billion in deposits, and 14 fullservice offices on the southwest side of Chicago and in the nearby southwestern and western suburbs. The acquisition has been accounted for by the purchase method of accounting and, accordingly, the results of operations of Standard have been included in TCF's consolidated financial statements from September 4, 1997. On June 24, 1997, TCF completed its acquisition of Winthrop Resources Corporation ("Winthrop"), a leasing company with $363 million in assets. The consolidated financial statements of TCF give effect to the acquisition, which has been accounted for as a pooling-of-interests combination. Accordingly, TCF's consolidated financial statements for periods prior to the combination have been restated to include the accounts and the results of operations of Winthrop for all periods presented, except for dividends declared per share. On January 16, 1997, TCF completed its purchase of BOC Financial Corporation ("BOC"), an Illinois-based bank holding company with $183.1 million in assets and $168 million in deposits. TCF accounted for the acquisition using the purchase method of accounting. On January 30, 1998, TCF National Bank Illinois ("TCF Illinois") completed its acquisition of 76 branches and 178 automated teller machines ("ATM") in Jewel-Osco stores in the Chicago area previously operated by Bank of America. TCF Illinois plans to open branches in 11 more Jewel-Osco stores in 1998, and 25 branches per year in subsequent years until branches have been installed in all targeted stores.

TCF accounted for the acquisition using the purchase method of accounting. On January 30, 1998, TCF National Bank Illinois ("TCF Illinois") completed its acquisition of 76 branches and 178 automated teller machines ("ATM") in Jewel-Osco stores in the Chicago area previously operated by Bank of America. TCF Illinois plans to open branches in 11 more Jewel-Osco stores in 1998, and 25 branches per year in subsequent years until branches have been installed in all targeted stores. TCF anticipates that the 1998 cost of this expansion will be weighted more heavily in the first half of 1998. TCF accounted for the acquisition using the purchase method of accounting. Further detail on the acquisitions is provided in Note 2 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. During the fourth quarter of 1997, TCF adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 128, "Earnings per Share." SFAS No. 128 supersedes the standards for computing and presenting earnings per share ("EPS") previously found in Accounting Principles Board ("APB") Opinion No. 15, "Earnings per Share." SFAS No. 128 replaces Primary EPS and Fully Diluted EPS with Basic EPS and Diluted EPS, respectively. SFAS No. 128 is effective for financial statements issued for periods ending after December 15, 1997, including interim periods. In accordance with SFAS No. 128, all prior-period EPS data presented has been restated to reflect the adoption of SFAS No. 128. The per-share amounts for 1996 and 1995 have also been restated giving retroactive recognition to TCF's November 28, 1997 two-for-one stock split. See "Financial Condition Stockholders' Equity." Further detail on the adoption of SFAS No. 128 is provided in Note 1 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. RESULTS OF OPERATIONS PERFORMANCE SUMMARY TCF reported net income of $145.1 million for 1997, up from $100.4 million for 1996 and $72.2 million for 1995. Basic earnings per common share were $1.72 for 1997, compared with $1.23 for 1996 and 88 cents for 1995. Diluted earnings per common share were $1.69 for 1997, compared with $1.20 for 1996 and 86 cents for 1995. Return on average assets was 1.77% in 1997, compared with 1.39% in 1996 and .95% in 1995. Return on average realized common equity was 19.57% in 1997, compared with 16.77% in 1996 and 13.69% in 1995. Basic cash earnings per common share, which exclude amortization of goodwill and deposit base intangibles, were $1.85 for 1997, compared with $1.26 for 1996 and 91 cents for 1995.

TCF's 1997 results reflect a branch reorganization at Great Lakes National Bank Michigan ("Great Lakes Michigan") and Great Lakes National Bank Ohio ("Great Lakes Ohio"), including the sale of all eight Great Lakes Ohio branches and related deposits for a net gain of $10.6 million, the accelerated amortization of Great Lakes Michigan's remaining $8.7 million of deposit base intangibles, and the write-off of $1.5 million of Great Lakes Michigan's teller equipment. 17

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Financial Review - (Continued) TCF's 1996 results included a one-time special assessment of $34.8 million from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") to recapitalize the Savings Association Insurance Fund ("SAIF") under federal legislation enacted on September 30, 1996. On an after-tax basis, the FDIC special assessment totaled $21.7 million, or 26 cents per basic common share. TCF's 1995 results included certain merger-related charges incurred in connection with TCF's acquisition of Great Lakes Bancorp, A Federal Savings Bank ("Great Lakes"), which is described in Note 2 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. On an after-tax basis, these merger-related charges totaled $32.8 million, or 41 cents per basic common share. Net income totaled $145.1 million for 1997, up 18.8% from $122.1 million for 1996 before the FDIC special assessment. Net income totaled $105.1 million for 1995 before the merger-related charges. On the same basis, basic earnings per common share were $1.72, up 15.4% from $1.49 for 1996, and $1.29 for 1995, and diluted earnings per common share were $1.69 for 1997, up 15.8% from $1.46 for 1996, and $1.25 for 1995. Basic cash earnings per common share, on the same basis, were $1.85 for 1997, up from $1.52 for 1996 and $1.32 for 1995. Return on average assets was a record 1.77% for 1997, compared with 1.70% for 1996 before the special assessment, and 1.38% for 1995 before the merger-related charges. On the same basis, return on average realized common equity was 19.57% for 1997, compared with 20.40% for 1996 and 19.97% for 1995. As the Standard acquisition was accounted for as a purchase transaction, TCF's results for periods prior to the Standard acquisition have not been restated. Since Standard's performance ratios were lower than TCF's, the Company's performance ratios for 1997 were negatively impacted by the acquisition of Standard. The Company's performance ratios for 1998 will continue to be negatively impacted due to the inclusion of Standard for the entire year. NET INTEREST INCOME A significant component of TCF's earnings is net interest income, which is the difference between interest earned on loans and leases, securities available for sale, investments, mortgage-backed securities held to maturity, and other interest-earning assets (interest income), and interest paid on deposits and borrowings (interest expense). This amount, when divided by average interest-earning assets, is referred to as the net interest margin, expressed as a percentage. Net interest income and net interest margin are affected by changes in interest rates, the volume and the mix of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, and the level of non-performing assets. The arithmetic difference between the yield on interest-earning assets and the cost of interest-bearing liabilities expressed as a percentage is referred to as the net interest-rate spread. Net interest income was a record $393.6 million for the year ended December 31, 1997, up from $354.6 million in 1996 and $329.1 million in 1995. This represents an increase of 11% in 1997, following increases of 7.7% in 1996 and 15.3% in 1995. Total average interest-earning assets increased 12.5% in 1997, following decreases of 5.6% in 1996 and 1.3% in 1995. The net interest margin for 1997 was 5.20%, compared with 5.27% in 1996 and 4.61% in 1995. TCF's net interest margin for 1997 was negatively impacted by the acquisition of Standard and is expected to decline further in 1998 due to the impact of Standard's lower net interest margin for the entire year. In addition, TCF's net interest-rate spread was 4.54% in 1997, compared with 4.68% and 4.14% in 1996 and 1995, respectively. 18

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Financial Review - (Continued) In 1997, TCF's net interest income increased primarily due to the acquisition of Standard, the growth of higheryielding consumer loans, commercial business loans, lease financings, and lower-cost retail deposits, and increased capital. Net interest income increased $39 million, or 11%, and total average interest-earning assets increased by $839.9 million, or 12.5%, from 1996 levels. TCF's net interest income improved by $46.6 million due to volume changes and decreased $7.6 million due to rate changes. The favorable impact of the growth in consumer loan, securities available for sale, residential real estate loan and lease financing volumes was partially offset by decreased yields on consumer and residential real estate loans, decreased volumes in commercial real estate loans, and increased certificate of deposit volumes. TCF's net interest margin for the fourth quarter of 1997 was 4.93%, compared with 5.24% for the third quarter of 1997 and 5.37% for the fourth quarter of 1996. As previously noted, TCF's net interest margin for 1997 was negatively impacted by the acquisition of Standard. Margin growth is dependent on TCF's ability to generate higher-yielding assets. TCF expects that the current interest rate environment and the resulting increase in prepayment activity will make it more difficult to generate, or increase the balance of, such higher-yielding assets. Interest income increased $69.7 million in 1997, reflecting an increase of $75.2 million due to volume, partially offset by a decrease of $5.5 million due to rate changes. Interest expense increased $30.7 million in 1997, primarily due to the acquisition of Standard, reflecting increases of $28.6 million due to volume and $2.1 million due to a higher cost of funds. The decrease in net interest income due to the unfavorable impact of rate changes reflects the acquisition of Standard, partially offset by TCF's changing asset/liability mix, with greater emphasis on higher-yielding consumer loans and lease financings. If variable index rates (e.g., prime) were to decline, TCF may experience compression of its net interest margin depending on the timing and amount of any reductions, as it is possible that interest rates paid on retail deposits will not decline as quickly, or to the same extent, as the decline in the yield on interest-rate-sensitive assets such as home equity loans. In addition, competition for checking, savings and money market deposits, an important source of lower cost funds for TCF, has intensified among depository and other financial institutions. TCF may also experience compression in its net interest margin if the rates paid on deposits increase. See "Financial Condition - Deposits" and "Financial Condition - Market Risk - Interest-Rate Risk." In 1996, TCF's net interest income, net interest margin and interest-rate spread increased primarily due to the growth of higher-yielding consumer loans and lease financings, the favorable impact of the 1995 merger-related restructuring activities, the November 30, 1995 redemption of $34.5 million of 10% subordinated capital notes, lower average levels of non-performing assets, and increased capital. Net interest income increased $25.5 million, or 7.7%, even though total average interest-earning assets decreased by $400.4 million, or 5.6%, from 1995 levels. TCF's net interest income improved by $8.9 million due to volume changes and by $16.6 million due to rate changes. The favorable impact of the lower cost of funds and growth in consumer loan, lease financing and securities available for sale volumes was partially offset by decreased volumes in mortgage-backed securities and residential real estate loans. Interest income decreased $18.3 million in 1996, reflecting a decrease of $19.6 million due to volume and an increase of $1.3 million due to rate changes. Interest expense decreased $43.8 million in 1996, reflecting decreases of $28.5 million due to volume and $15.3 million due to a lower cost of funds. The increase in net interest income due to the favorable impact of rate changes reflects in part TCF's changing asset/liability mix, with greater emphasis on higher-yielding consumer loans and lease financings and less emphasis on mortgage-backed securities. In 1995, TCF's net interest income, net interest margin and interest-rate spread increased primarily due to increased yields and growth of consumer loans and lease financings, the favorable impact of the Great Lakes merger-related restructuring activities, lower average levels of non-performing assets, and increased capital. Net interest income increased $43.6 million, or 15.3%, even though total average interest-earning assets decreased

The increase in net interest income due to the favorable impact of rate changes reflects in part TCF's changing asset/liability mix, with greater emphasis on higher-yielding consumer loans and lease financings and less emphasis on mortgage-backed securities. In 1995, TCF's net interest income, net interest margin and interest-rate spread increased primarily due to increased yields and growth of consumer loans and lease financings, the favorable impact of the Great Lakes merger-related restructuring activities, lower average levels of non-performing assets, and increased capital. Net interest income increased $43.6 million, or 15.3%, even though total average interest-earning assets decreased by $92.3 million, or 1.3%, from 1994 levels. TCF's net interest income improved by $15 million due to volume changes and by $28.7 million due to rate changes. The favorable impact of growth in higher-yielding consumer loans and lease financings was partially offset by the negative impact of a higher cost of funds and decreased volumes in mortgage-backed securities held to maturity and securities available for sale. Interest income increased $62.3 million in 1995, reflecting an increase of $53 million due to higher yields on interest-earning assets. Interest expense increased $18.7 million in 1995, reflecting a $24.3 million increase due to a higher cost of funds. The increase in net interest income due to the favorable impact of rate changes reflects in part the benefit from TCF's changing asset/liability mix.

PROVISION FOR CREDIT LOSSES TCF provided $17.8 million for credit losses in 1997, compared with $21.2 million in 1996 and $16.1 million in 1995. Included in the 1995 provision for credit losses were $5 million of merger-related provisions. The mergerrelated provisions were established to conform Great Lakes' credit loss reserve practices and methods to those of TCF and to allow for the accelerated disposition of Great Lakes' remaining problem assets. The allowance for loan and lease losses and industrial revenue bond reserves totaled $84 million at December 31, 1997, compared with $73.5 million at December 31, 1996. See "Financial Condition - Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses and Industrial Revenue Bond Reserves." 21

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Financial Review - (Continued) NON-INTEREST INCOME Non-interest income is a significant source of revenues for TCF and an important factor in TCF's results of operations. Providing a wide range of retail banking services is an integral component of TCF's business philosophy and a major strategy for generating additional non-interest income. Excluding gains on sales of branches and loans, non-interest income increased $38.9 million, or 22.4%, during 1997 to $212.3 million. The increase was primarily due to increases in fee and service charge revenues, ATM network revenues, leasing revenues and gains on sales of securities available for sale. The following table presents the components of noninterest income:

At December 31, 1997, 1996 and 1995, TCF was servicing real estate loans for others with aggregate unpaid principal balances of $4.4 billion, $4.5 billion and $4.5 billion, respectively. Leasing revenues increased $8.2 million, or 34.5%, in 1997 and $4.1 million, or 20.6%, in 1996. Leasing revenues can fluctuate as a result of changes in the mix of leases classified as sales-type, direct financing or operating leases in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. In addition, leasing revenues may be negatively impacted by a decline in economic activity and a resulting decrease in demand for leased equipment. ATM network revenues increased $9.3 million, or 43.4%, in 1997 and $3.1 million, or 16.6%, in 1996. These increases reflect TCF's efforts to provide banking services through its ATM network. TCF expanded its network to 1,156 ATMs at December 31, 1997, an increase of 239 ATMs during 1997. As previously noted, on January 30, 1998, TCF acquired 178 ATMs in connection with its acquisition of 76 branches in Jewel-Osco stores. The Company anticipates installing additional ATMs during 1998. Title insurance revenues increased $238,000 in 1997 to $13.7 million, following an increase of $2 million in 1996 to $13.5 million. Title insurance revenues are cyclical in nature and are largely dependent on industry levels of

residential real estate loan originations and refinancings. Commissions on sales of annuities decreased $1.2 million to $7.9 million in 1997, following an increase of $577,000 to $9.1 million in 1996. Sales of annuities may fluctuate from period to period, and future sales levels will depend upon continued favorable tax treatment, the level of interest rates, general economic conditions and investor preferences. Sales of annuities may be negatively impacted by the current interest rate environment. Gains on sales of loans held for sale decreased $261,000 in 1997 following an increase of $1.3 million in 1996. Gains on sales of securities available for sale totaled $8.5 million in 1997, an increase of $8.4 million from the $86,000 recognized in 1996. Gains or losses on sales of loans held for sale and securities available for sale may fluctuate significantly from period to period due to changes in interest rates and volumes, and results in any period related to these transactions may not be indicative of results which will be obtained in future periods. Gains on sales of third-party loan servicing rights totaled $1.6 million in 1997 on the sale of $144.7 million of third-party loan servicing rights. Gains of $1.5 million were recognized in 1995 on the sale of $146.3 million of third-party loan servicing rights. TCF periodically sells loan servicing rights depending on market conditions. 22

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Financial Review - (Continued) Other non-interest income increased $1.7 million in 1997 to $11.6 million, and $2.7 million in 1996 to $10 million. The increases were primarily due to increased commission revenue earned on sales of insurance and mutual fund products. During 1997, TCF recognized gains of $14.2 million on the sales of eleven branches, compared with gains of $2.7 million on the sales of five branches during 1996. During 1997, TCF recognized a $145,000 gain on the sale of $2.8 million of loans related to the sale of a branch. During 1996, TCF recognized a $4.6 million gain on the sale of $39.6 million of credit card loans. The Company now provides credit card products on behalf of a third party through a marketing agreement. Also during 1996, TCF recognized a gain of $810,000 on the sale of $7.2 million of loans related to the sale of branches. During 1995, Great Lakes sold $232.2 million of collateralized mortgage obligations from its held-to-maturity portfolio at a pretax loss of $21 million. Also in 1995, Great Lakes sold $17.3 million of securities available for sale at a pretax loss of $310,000. These merger-related asset sales were completed as part of TCF's strategy to reduce Great Lakes' interest-rate and credit risk to levels consistent with TCF's existing interest-rate risk position and credit risk policy. TCF's non-interest income in future periods may be negatively impacted by pending state and federal legislative proposals, which, if enacted, could limit loan, deposit or other fees and service charges.

Compensation and employee benefits, representing 49.9% and 44.6% of total non-interest expense in 1997 and 1996, respectively, increased $22.9 million, or 14.6%, in 1997, and $13.7 million, or 9.5%, in 1996. The 1997 increase was primarily due to costs associated with expanded retail banking activities, including the impact of the acquisitions of Standard and BOC. The 1996 increase was primarily due to the expansion of consumer lending operations and other retail banking activities. Occupancy and equipment expenses increased $6.4 million in 1997 and $1 million in 1996. The 1997 increase

reflects the costs associated with expanded retail banking activities, including the addition of 25 bank branch offices. The increase in 1996 reflected the opening of 12 bank branch offices. Advertising and promotion expenses increased $2.1 million in 1997 and $207,000 in 1996. The increases reflect the increase in direct mail and other marketing expenses relating to the promotion of TCF's consumer lending, deposit and leasing products. Federal deposit insurance premiums and assessments decreased $7.3 million in 1997 and $1.5 million in 1996. The decrease in 1997 reflects a reduction in the rate charged to TCF by the FDIC for federal deposit insurance premiums from 23 basis points to approximately 6.50 basis points as a result of federal legislation enacted on September 30, 1996 to recapitalize the SAIF, partially offset by higher deposit levels due to the acquisition of Standard. The decrease in 1996 was primarily due to lower deposit levels and a decrease in the 1996 fourth quarter deposit insurance premium rates as a result of the recapitalization of the SAIF. Amortization of goodwill and other intangibles increased $12.2 million in 1997 and $377,000 in 1996. The increase in 1997 was due to the previously mentioned accelerated amortization of $8.7 million of deposit base intangibles and the amortization of goodwill and deposit base intangibles resulting from the acquisitions of Standard and BOC. Other non-interest expense increased $6.5 million, or 8.5%, in 1997 and $4.2 million, or 5.8%, in 1996. The increase for 1997 reflects the write-off of $1.5 million of teller equipment in connection with the previously mentioned Great Lakes Michigan branch reorganization and the recognition of $1.5 million of non-recurring merger-related costs in connection with TCF's acquisition of Winthrop. The increase in 1997 also reflects costs 23

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Financial Review - (Continued) associated with expanded retail banking activities, including the impact of the acquisitions of Standard and BOC. The increase in 1996 was primarily due to costs associated with the relocation and consolidation of certain backoffice operations, the expansion of TCF's consumer lending operations, and other retail banking activities. In addition, the increase reflects an increase in Michigan state business taxes due to improved profitability. TCF's 1996 results included a one-time special assessment of $34.8 million from the FDIC to recapitalize the SAIF under federal legislation enacted on September 30, 1996. See "Financial Condition - Legislative and Regulatory Developments." Merger-related expenses for 1995 included $13.9 million of equipment charges associated with the integration of Great Lakes' data processing system into TCF's, $4.7 million of employment contract, severance and employment benefit costs reflecting the consolidation of certain Great Lakes functions, and $2.2 million of professional fees and $864,000 of other expenses which were incurred by Great Lakes as a direct result of the merger. During 1995, Great Lakes prepaid $112.3 million of Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advances at a pretax loss of $1.5 million. This amount, net of a $578,000 income tax benefit, was recorded as an extraordinary item. Interest-rate exchange contracts with notional principal amounts totaling $544.5 million were terminated by Great Lakes during 1995 at a pretax loss of $4.4 million. These actions were taken in order to reduce Great Lakes' level of higher-cost wholesale borrowings and to reduce interest-rate risk. TCF, like most owners of computer software, will be required to ascertain that its computer systems will function properly in the year 2000. TCF has established a year 2000 task force and has evaluated its data processing and other systems to determine whether they are year 2000 compliant. Remediation of certain software applications has already begun, and TCF expects substantially all remediation work to be complete by the end of 1998, leaving 1999 for testing. Many of TCF's data processing applications are supplied by third party software vendors. TCF is also evaluating whether such vendor supplied applications are or will be year 2000 compliant. TCF estimates the total additional costs to be incurred prior to 2000 to range from approximately $5 million to $6 million. In addition, a significant amount of existing internal resources will be allocated to this project.

In addition, a significant amount of existing internal resources will be allocated to this project. Maintenance or modification costs will be expensed as incurred, while the costs of new software will be capitalized and amortized over the software's useful life. TCF's year 2000 compliance initiatives are subject to certain uncertainties which may delay or increase the cost of achieving compliance. To some extent, TCF's operations will be dependent on the year 2000 compliance achieved by outside vendors, borrowers and government agencies or instrumentalities such as the Federal Reserve System, and also on the cooperation of such parties in testing the effectiveness of compliance initiatives. See "Financial Condition - Forward-Looking Information." INCOME TAXES TCF recorded income tax expense of $95.8 million in 1997, compared with $61 million in 1996 and $45.5 million in 1995. Income tax expense represented 39.8% of income before income tax expense and extraordinary item during 1997, compared with 37.8% and 38.3% in 1996 and 1995, respectively. The higher tax rate in 1997 reflects the impact of relatively higher non-deductible expenses, including goodwill amortization resulting from the acquisitions of Standard and BOC, and higher state tax rates due to business expansion. TCF expects that its effective tax rate will increase in 1998, principally due to increased amortization of goodwill. Further detail on income taxes is provided in Note 13 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. FINANCIAL CONDITION INVESTMENTS Total investments decreased $326.6 million in 1997 to $129.6 million at December 31, 1997. The decrease is primarily due to a decrease of $365.7 million in interest-bearing deposits with banks, partially offset by an increase of $15.9 million in FHLB stock, and the purchase of $23 million of Federal Reserve Bank ("FRB")

stock in connection with the conversion of TCF's savings bank subsidiaries to national banks. See "Legislative and Regulatory Developments." TCF had no non-investment grade debt securities (junk bonds) and there were no open trading account or investment option positions as of December 31, 1997. SECURITIES AVAILABLE FOR SALE Securities available for sale are carried at fair value with the unrealized gains or losses, net of deferred income taxes, reported as a separate component of stockholders' equity. Securities available for sale increased $426.5 million during 1997 to $1.4 billion at December 31, 1997. The increase reflects the acquisition of $866.8 million and $83.1 million of securities available for sale as part of the Standard and BOC transactions, respectively, and purchases of $507 million, partially offset by sales of $467.7 million and payment and prepayment activity. At December 31, 1997, TCF's securities available-for-sale portfolio included $930.1 million and $496 million of fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgage-backed securities, respectively. Securities available for sale totaled $999.6 million at December 31, 1996. LOANS HELD FOR SALE Residential real estate and education loans held for sale are carried at the lower of cost or market. Education loans held for sale decreased $11 million and residential real estate loans held for sale increased $51.7 million from year-end 1996, and totaled $135.3 million and $109.3 million, respectively, at December 31, 1997. 24

Residential real estate loans increased $1.4 billion from year-end 1996 to $3.6 billion at December 31, 1997, principally due to the acquisition of Standard. At December 31, 1997, TCF's residential real estate loan portfolio was comprised of $1.4 billion of fixed-rate loans and $2.2 billion of adjustable-rate loans. Consumer loans, comprised of bank originated and consumer finance originated loans, increased $238.2 million from year-end 1996 to $2 billion at December 31, 1997, reflecting increases of $225.8 million and $28.4 million in home equity loans and automobile loans, respectively. These increases reflect the acquisition of $24.2 million of home equity loans and $64.2 million of automobile loans due to the Standard transaction. The growth in home equity loans reflects TCF's expanded consumer lending and consumer finance operations. Consumer loan growth in recent years reflects TCF's emphasis on expanding its portfolio of these higher-yielding, shorter-term loans, including home equity loans.

Residential real estate loans increased $1.4 billion from year-end 1996 to $3.6 billion at December 31, 1997, principally due to the acquisition of Standard. At December 31, 1997, TCF's residential real estate loan portfolio was comprised of $1.4 billion of fixed-rate loans and $2.2 billion of adjustable-rate loans. Consumer loans, comprised of bank originated and consumer finance originated loans, increased $238.2 million from year-end 1996 to $2 billion at December 31, 1997, reflecting increases of $225.8 million and $28.4 million in home equity loans and automobile loans, respectively. These increases reflect the acquisition of $24.2 million of home equity loans and $64.2 million of automobile loans due to the Standard transaction. The growth in home equity loans reflects TCF's expanded consumer lending and consumer finance operations. Consumer loan growth in recent years reflects TCF's emphasis on expanding its portfolio of these higher-yielding, shorter-term loans, including home equity loans. TCF had 60 consumer finance offices in 16 states as of December 31, 1997. TCF's consumer finance loan portfolio totaled $521.5 million at December 31, 1997, compared with $496.3 million at December 31, 1996. The Company is seeking to increase the outstanding loan balances and improve the profitability of its consumer finance subsidiaries. See "Forward-Looking Information." TCF's consumer finance subsidiaries primarily originate automobile and home equity loans and purchase automobile loans. The average individual balance of consumer finance automobile loans and home equity loans were $8,000 and $31,000, respectively, at December 31, 1997. At December 31, 1997 and 1996, automobile loans comprised $292.6 million, or 56.1%, and $299.6 million, or 60.4%, respectively, of total consumer finance loans outstanding. At December 31, 1997 and 1996, home equity loans comprised $218.8 million, or 42%, and $185.2 million, or 37.3%, respectively, of total consumer finance loans. TCF's consumer finance subsidiaries are seeking to increase the percentage of home equity loans to total consumer finance loans over time. Home equity loans originated by the Company's consumer finance subsidiaries are generally closed-end. Through their purchases of automobile loans, TCF's consumer finance subsidiaries provide indirect financing. Included in the consumer finance loans at December 31, 1997 are $241.3 million of sub-prime automobile loans which carry a higher level of credit risk and higher interest rates. The term sub-prime refers to the Company's assessment of credit risk and bears no relationship to the prime rate of interest or persons who are able to borrow at that rate. There can be no assurances that the Company's sub-prime lending criteria are the same as those utilized by other lenders. Loans classified as sub-prime are owed by borrowers who are unable to obtain credit from traditional sources because of significant past credit problems or limited credit histories.

Although competition in the sub-prime lending market has increased, the Company believes that sub-prime borrowers represent a substantial market and their demand for financing has not been adequately served by traditional lending sources. The underwriting criteria for loans originated by TCF's consumer finance subsidiaries generally have been less stringent than those historically adhered to by TCF's bank subsidiaries and, as a result, these loans carry a higher level of credit risk and higher interest rates. The consumer finance portfolio also carries an increased risk of loss in the event of adverse economic developments such as a recession. TCF believes that important determinants of success in sub-prime automobile financing include the ability to control borrower and dealer misrepresentations at the point of origination; the evaluation of the creditworthiness of sub-prime borrowers; and the maintenance of an active program to monitor performance and collect payments. Sub-prime lending is inherently more risky than traditional lending and there can be no assurance that all appropriate underwriting criteria have been identified or weighted properly in the assessment of credit risk, or will afford adequate protection against the higher risks inherent in lending to sub-prime borrowers. Many of the consumer finance offices are relatively new and are outside TCF's traditional market areas. The geographic location of consumer finance loans may change significantly in future periods. See Note 6 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information concerning the geographic locations of TCF's consumer finance loan portfolio. TCF's bank and consumer finance subsidiaries have also initiated the origination of home equity loans with loanto-value ratios in excess of 80%, and on a limited basis up to 100%, that carry no private mortgage insurance. These loans carry a higher level of credit risk and are made at higher interest rates. 25

Average balance

(1) Includes construction and development loans. Commercial real estate loans increased $1.1 million from year-end 1996 to $862.2 million at December 31, 1997. Commercial business loans increased $83 million in 1997 to $239.7 million at December 31, 1997. TCF is seeking to expand its commercial business lending activity and, to a lesser extent, its commercial real estate lending activity to borrowers located in its primary midwestern markets in an attempt to maintain the size of these lending portfolios and, where feasible under local economic conditions, achieve some growth in these lending categories over time. These loans generally have larger individual balances and a greater inherent risk of loss. The risk of loss is difficult to quantify and in the case of commercial real estate loans, is subject to fluctuations in real estate values. At December 31, 1997, approximately 92% of TCF's commercial real estate loans outstanding were secured by properties located in its primary markets. The average individual balance of commercial real estate loans was $500,000 at December 31, 1997. Apartment loans comprised $304.9 million, or 35.4%, of total commercial real estate loans outstanding at December 31, 1997. The average individual balance of commercial business loans was $291,000 at December 31, 1997. Lease financings increased $72.5 million from year-end 1996 to $414.3 million at December 31, 1997, reflecting a $79.7 million increase in direct financing leases, partially offset by a $9.9 million decrease in sales-type leases. Winthrop provides a range of comprehensive lease finance products addressing the financing needs of diverse companies through four product groups. The Value Added Lease, which has been Winthrop's primary focus, generally has a term from two to five years and is entered into with large organizations (generally corporations with revenue of $50 million or more). Such leases typically range from $250,000 to $20 million and cover hightechnology and other business-essential equipment. These leases are flexible in structure to accommodate equipment additions and upgrades to meet customers' changing needs. Small Ticket Leases are typically less than $250,000, have lease terms of between two and five years, and cover business-essential equipment. Winthrop developed the Small Ticket Lease in response to the expanding technological needs of increasing numbers of small, growing businesses. Leasing to small, growing businesses is inherently more risky than leasing to large, established corporations. The Enterprise Lease is designed to meet the needs of large corporations with influence over multiple business entities (for example, franchise operations). The Enterprise Lease integrates the Value Added Lease and the Small Ticket Lease for organizations in need of enterprise-wide equipment and systems solutions. Through the Wholesale Lease, Winthrop acts as a lease broker that, for a fee, arranges lease financing with other leasing companies for a variety of unaffiliated brokers and vendors. The Wholesale Lease is generally sold to an outside funding source and does not become part of Winthrop's lease portfolio.

sold to an outside funding source and does not become part of Winthrop's lease portfolio. Winthrop enters into standard lease agreements with each customer. Winthrop's leases are noncancelable "net" leases which contain provisions under which the customer, upon acceptance of the equipment, must make all lease payments regardless of any defects in the equipment and which require the customer to maintain and service the equipment, insure the equipment against casualty loss and pay all property, sales and other taxes related to the equipment. Winthrop typically retains ownership of the equipment it leases and, in the event of default by the customer, Winthrop, or the financial institution that has provided non-recourse financing for a particular lease, may declare the customer in default, accelerate all lease payments due under the lease and pursue other available remedies, including repossession of the equipment. Upon completion of the initial term of the lease, the customer may return the equipment to Winthrop, renew the lease for an additional term, or in certain circumstances purchase the equipment. If the equipment is returned to Winthrop, it is either re-leased to another customer or sold into the secondary-user marketplace. 26

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Financial Review - (Continued) Winthrop's ability to arrange financing is important to its business. Winthrop may arrange permanent financing of Value Added Leases through non-recourse discounting of lease rentals with various other financial institutions at fixed interest rates. The proceeds from the assignment of the lease rentals are equal to the present value of the remaining lease payments due under the lease, discounted at the interest rate charged by the other financial institutions. Interest rates obtained under this type of financing are negotiated on a transaction-by-transaction basis and reflect the financial strength of the lease customer, the term of the lease and the prevailing interest rates. For a lease discounted on a non-recourse basis, the other financial institution has no recourse against Winthrop unless Winthrop is in default of the terms of the agreement under which the lease and the leased equipment are assigned to the other financial institution as collateral. The other financial institution may, however, take title to the collateral in the event the customer fails to make lease payments or certain other defaults by the lease customer occur under the terms of the lease. TCF is seeking to expand its leasing activity to achieve growth over time. TCF has started to internally fund certain Value Added Leases, and consequently retains the credit risk on such leases. TCF and Winthrop also internally fund Small Ticket Leases which, as previously mentioned, generally carry a higher level of credit risk and higher implicit interest rates. TCF believes that it has in place experienced personnel and acceptable standards for maintaining the credit quality of its lease portfolio, but no assurance can be given as to the level of future delinquencies and lease charge-offs. ALLOWANCE FOR LOAN AND LEASE LOSSES AND INDUSTRIAL REVENUE BOND RESERVES Credit risk is the risk of loss from a customer default. TCF has in place a process to identify and manage its credit risks. The process includes initial credit review and approval, periodic monitoring to measure compliance with credit agreements and internal credit policies, identification of problem loans and leases and special procedures for collection of problem loans and leases. The risk of loss is difficult to quantify and is subject to fluctuations in values and general economic conditions. See Note 1 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information concerning TCF's allowance for loan and lease losses. At December 31, 1997, the allowance for loan and lease losses and industrial revenue bond reserves totaled $84 million, compared with $73.5 million at December 31, 1996. The increase reflects the addition of $8.9 million and $1.7 million of allowances for loan losses as part of the Standard and BOC acquisitions, respectively. Net loan and lease and industrial revenue bond charge-offs were $17.9 million in 1997, compared with $16 million in 1996. TCF has experienced an increase in the level of net loan charge-offs related to its consumer finance portfolio. As a result, net loan charge-offs as a percentage of average loans outstanding for TCF's consumer finance portfolio increased to 3.02% for the year ended December 31, 1997, compared with 2.42% for 1996. In addition, the net loan charge-offs as a percentage of average loans outstanding for TCF's indirect consumer

In addition, the net loan charge-offs as a percentage of average loans outstanding for TCF's indirect consumer finance portfolio increased to 4.64% and 4.31% for the three months and year ended December 31, 1997, respectively, compared with 3.59% for the year ended December 31, 1996. The unallocated portion of TCF's allowance for loan and lease losses totaled $29.4 million at December 31, 1997, compared with $22.4 million at December 31, 1996. A summary of the allowance for loan and lease losses and industrial revenue bond reserves and selected statistics is presented in Note 7 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. NON-PERFORMING ASSETS Non-performing assets (principally non-accrual loans and leases and other real estate owned) totaled $58.7 million at December 31, 1997, up $12.4 million from the December 31, 1996 total of $46.3 million. The increase in non-performing assets reflects increases of $4.5 million and $5.8 million in residential real estate and consumer finance non-accrual loans, respectively. The increase in residential non-accrual loans reflects the addition of $4.7 million due to the acquisition of Standard. Approximately 68% of non-performing assets consist of, or are secured by, real estate. The accrual of interest income is generally discontinued when loans and leases become

90 days or more past due with respect to either principal or interest unless such loans and leases are adequately secured and in the process of collection. 27

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Financial Review - (Continued) TCF's over 30-day delinquency rate on gross consumer loans was 1.91% at December 31, 1997, up from 1.62% at year-end 1996. Management continues to monitor the consumer loan portfolio, which will generally have higher delinquencies, especially consumer finance loans. TCF's over 30-day delinquency rate on gross consumer finance loans was 5.13% at December 31, 1997, compared with 3.86% at December 31, 1996. TCF's over 30-day delinquency rate on gross automobile and home equity consumer finance loans was 6.81% and 2.40%, respectively, at December 31, 1997, compared with 4.24% and 3.09% at December 31, 1996. Consumer finance lending is generally considered to involve a higher level of credit risk. TCF believes that it has in place experienced personnel and acceptable standards for maintaining credit quality that are consistent with its goals for expanding its portfolio of these higher-yielding loans, but no assurance can be given as to the level of future delinquencies and loan charge-offs. In addition to the non-accrual loans and leases, there were commercial real estate and commercial business loans with an aggregate principal balance of $23.6 million outstanding at December 31, 1997 for which management has concerns regarding the ability of the borrowers to meet existing repayment terms. This amount consists of loans that were classified for regulatory purposes as substandard, doubtful or loss, or were to borrowers that currently are experiencing financial difficulties or that management believes may experience financial difficulties in the future. This compares with $16 million of such loans at December 31, 1996. Although these loans are secured by commercial real estate or other corporate assets, they may be subject to future modifications of their terms or may become non-performing. Management is monitoring the performance and classification of such loans and the financial condition of these borrowers. LIQUIDITY MANAGEMENT TCF manages its liquidity position to ensure that the funding needs of depositors and borrowers are met promptly and in a cost-effective manner. Asset liquidity arises from the ability to convert assets to cash as well as from the maturity of assets. Liability liquidity results from the ability of TCF to attract a diversity of funding sources to meet funding requirements promptly. Deposits are the primary source of TCF's funds for use in lending and for other general business purposes. In addition to deposits, TCF derives funds primarily from loan repayments, proceeds from the discounting of leases, advances from the FHLB and proceeds from reverse repurchase borrowing agreements. Deposit inflows and outflows are significantly influenced by general interest rates, money market conditions, competition for funds and other factors. TCF's deposit inflows and outflows have been affected by these factors and may continue to be affected in future periods. See "Forward-Looking Information." Borrowings may be used to compensate for reductions in normal sources of funds, such as deposit inflows at less than projected levels, net deposit outflows or to support expanded activities. Historically, TCF has borrowed primarily from the FHLB, from institutional sources under reverse repurchase agreements and, to a lesser extent, from other sources. See "Borrowings."

Historically, TCF has borrowed primarily from the FHLB, from institutional sources under reverse repurchase agreements and, to a lesser extent, from other sources. See "Borrowings." Potential sources of liquidity for TCF Financial Corporation (parent company only) include cash dividends from TCF's wholly owned bank subsidiaries, issuance of equity securities, borrowings under the Company's $100 million bank line of credit, and interest income. TCF's subsidiary banks' ability to pay dividends or make other capital distributions to TCF is restricted by regulation and may require regulatory approval. Undistributed earnings at December 31, 1997 includes approximately $134.4 million for which no provision for federal income tax has been made. This amount represents earnings appropriated to bad debt reserves and deducted for federal income tax purposes and is generally not available for payment of cash dividends or other distributions to shareholders. Payments or distributions of these appropriated earnings could invoke a tax liability for TCF based on the amount of earnings removed and current tax rates. DEPOSITS Deposits totaled $6.9 billion at December 31, 1997, up $1.9 billion from December 31, 1996, and reflects the acquisition of $1.9 billion and $160.9 million due to the Standard and BOC transactions, respectively, partially offset by the previously described branch sales. Lower interest-cost checking, savings and money market deposits totaled $3.3 billion, up $673.9 million from year-end 1996, and comprised 47.8% of total deposits at December 31, 1997. Checking, savings and money market deposits are an important source of lower cost funds

and fee income for TCF. The Company's weighted-average rate for deposits, including non-interest bearing deposits, increased to 3.42% at December 31, 1997, from 3.29% at December 31, 1996, reflecting a greater proportion of higher-rate certificates at December 31, 1997 than at December 31, 1996, primarily as a result of the Standard acquisition. BORROWINGS Borrowings are used primarily to fund the purchases of investments and securities available for sale. These borrowings totaled $1.7 billion at December 31, 1997, up $19 million from year-end 1996. The increase was primarily due to increases of $198.5 million in FHLB advances and $43 million in discounted lease rentals, partially offset by decreases of $181.5 million in securities sold under repurchase agreements and $38 million in collateralized obligations. The weighted-average rate on borrowings increased to 6.43% at December 31, 1997, from 6.19% at December 31, 1996. 29

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Financial Review - (Continued) STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY Stockholders' equity at December 31, 1997 was $953.7 million, or 9.8% of total assets, up from $630.7 million, or 8.5% of total assets, at December 31, 1996. The increase in stockholders' equity is primarily due to a $185.8 million increase resulting from the issuance of 7,700,000 shares of TCF common stock in connection with the acquisition of Standard, net income of $145.1 million for the year ended December 31, 1997, the June 3, 1997 secondary offering of 1,400,000 shares of TCF common stock for net proceeds of $29.3 million, and the issuance of 839,000 shares of TCF common stock in connection with the conversion of the remaining $7.1 million of 7 1/4% convertible subordinated debentures due 2011, partially offset by the payment of $38.2 million in common stock dividends and the repurchase of 1,295,800 shares of TCF's common stock at a cost of $27.3 million. On April 23, 1997, TCF's shareholders approved an increase in the number of authorized shares of TCF common stock from 70,000,000 to 140,000,000. On June 3, 1997, TCF completed a public offering of 1,400,000 shares of its common stock at a price of $21.6875 per share. The purpose of the offering was to meet one of the criteria for TCF's merger with Winthrop to be accounted for as a pooling of interests. The net proceeds of $29.3 million were used as a portion of the cash consideration paid in connection with the acquisition of Standard. On October 20, 1997, TCF's Board of Directors (the "Board") declared a two-for-one stock split in the form of a 100% common stock dividend payable November 28, 1997 to stockholders of record as of November 7, 1997. The stock split increased TCF's outstanding common shares from 46.4 million to 92.8 million shares. On January 19, 1998, the Board authorized the repurchase of up to 5% of TCF's common stock, or approximately 4.6 million shares. The repurchased shares will become treasury shares. On January 20, 1997, the Board authorized the repurchase of up to 5% of TCF's common stock, or approximately 3.5 million shares, but in February 1997, the Board formally rescinded this prior common stock repurchase program in connection with the Company's merger with Winthrop. On January 20, 1998, TCF declared a quarterly dividend of 12.5 cents per common share, payable on February 27, 1998 to stockholders of record as of February 6, 1998. RECENT ACCOUNTING DEVELOPMENTS In June 1997, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued SFAS No. 130, "Reporting Comprehensive Income."

The statement is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 1997. Reclassification of financial statements for earlier periods provided for comparative purposes is required. Management believes the adoption of this statement will not significantly impact TCF's financial condition or results of operations. In June 1997, the FASB issued SFAS No. 131, "Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information." The statement establishes standards for the way that public business enterprises report information about operating segments and certain other information in annual financial statements and requires that those enterprises report selected information about operating segments in interim financial reports issued to shareholders. The statement is effective for financial statements for periods beginning after December 15, 1997. Management believes the adoption of this statement will not significantly impact TCF's financial condition or results of operations. FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION There are a number of important factors which could cause future results to differ materially from historical performance. These include but are not limited to possible legislative changes; the possibility of adverse economic developments which may increase default and delinquency risks in TCF's loan portfolios; shifts in interest rates

which may result in shrinking interest margins; deposit outflows; interest rates on competing investments; demand for financial services and loan products; increases generally in competitive pressure in the banking and financial services industry; changes in accounting policies or guidelines, or monetary and fiscal policies of the federal government; changes in the quality or composition of TCF's loan and investment portfolios; results of litigation or other significant uncertainties. TCF's recently completed acquisitions of Winthrop, Standard and the Jewel-Osco branches (and its commitment to construct additional Jewel-Osco branches in future periods) are subject to additional uncertainties, including the possible failure to fully realize or realize within the expected time frame expected cost savings or cost controls from the transactions; lower than expected income or revenue following the transactions; or higher than expected operating costs; business disruption relating to the transactions; greater than expected costs or difficulties related to the integration, retention and attraction of employees or management of the acquired business operations with those of TCF; litigation costs and delays caused by litigation; and other unanticipated occurrences which may increase the costs related to the transactions or decrease the expected financial benefits of the transactions. 30

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Financial Review - (Continued) LEGISLATIVE AND REGULATORY DEVELOPMENTS Federal and state legislation imposes numerous legal and regulatory requirements on financial institutions. Future legislative or regulatory change, or changes in enforcement practices or court rulings, may have a dramatic and potentially adverse impact on TCF and its bank and other subsidiaries. Federal legislation enacted on September 30, 1996 addressed inadequate funding of the SAIF, which had resulted in a large deposit insurance premium disparity between banks insured by the Bank Insurance Fund ("BIF") and SAIF-insured thrifts. As a result of this legislation, a one-time special assessment was imposed on thrift institutions, and TCF recognized a $34.8 million pretax charge for assessments imposed on its bank subsidiaries during the third quarter of 1996. The legislation also provided for a reduction in deposit insurance premiums in subsequent periods and other regulatory reforms. Federal legislation was enacted in 1996 that repealed the reserve method of accounting for thrift bad debt reserves. This legislation eliminated the recapture of a thrift institution's bad debt reserve under certain circumstances, including the institution's conversion to a bank or as a result of similar charter changes. After passage of both the BIF/SAIF legislation and the repeal of the reserve method of accounting for bad debts, TCF completed the conversion of its savings bank subsidiaries to national banks and TCF became a national bank holding company on April 7, 1997. In connection with the national bank conversions, TCF chartered two new national bank subsidiaries, Great Lakes Ohio and TCF National Bank Colorado ("TCF Colorado"). As previously mentioned, TCF sold all eight branches and related deposits of Great Lakes Ohio in 1997. TCF now operates five national bank subsidiaries: TCF National Bank Minnesota, TCF Illinois, TCF National Bank Wisconsin, TCF Colorado and Great Lakes Michigan. MARKET RISK - INTEREST-RATE RISK TCF's results of operations are dependent to a large degree on its net interest income, which is the difference between interest income and interest expense, and the Company's ability to manage its interest-rate risk. Although TCF manages other risks, such as credit and liquidity risk, in the normal course of its business, the Company considers interest-rate risk to be its most significant market risk. TCF, like most financial institutions, has a material interest-rate risk exposure to changes in both short-term and long-term interest rates as well as variable index interest rates (e.g., prime). Since TCF does not hold a trading portfolio, the Company is not exposed to significant market risk from trading activities. Like most financial institutions, TCF's interest income and cost of funds are significantly affected by general economic conditions and by policies of regulatory authorities. The mismatch between maturities and interest-rate sensitivities of assets and liabilities results in interest-rate risk. Although the measure is subject to a number of assumptions and is only one of a number of measurements, management believes the interest-rate gap (difference

Since TCF does not hold a trading portfolio, the Company is not exposed to significant market risk from trading activities. Like most financial institutions, TCF's interest income and cost of funds are significantly affected by general economic conditions and by policies of regulatory authorities. The mismatch between maturities and interest-rate sensitivities of assets and liabilities results in interest-rate risk. Although the measure is subject to a number of assumptions and is only one of a number of measurements, management believes the interest-rate gap (difference between interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities repricing within a given period) is an important indication of TCF's exposure to interest-rate risk and the related volatility of net interest income in a changing interest rate environment. In addition to the interest-rate gap analysis, management also utilizes a simulation model to measure and manage TCF's interest-rate risk. For an institution with a negative interest-rate gap for a given period, the amount of its interest-bearing liabilities maturing or otherwise repricing within such period exceeds the amount of interest-earning assets repricing within the same period. In a rising interest-rate environment, institutions with negative interest- rate gaps will generally experience more immediate increases in the cost of their liabilities than in the yield on their assets. Conversely, the yield on assets for institutions with negative interest-rate gaps will generally decrease more slowly than the cost of their funds in a falling interest-rate environment. TCF's Asset/Liability Management Committee manages TCF's interest-rate risk based on interest rate expectations and other factors. The principal objective of TCF's asset/liability management activities is to provide maximum levels of net interest income while maintaining acceptable levels of interest-rate risk and liquidity risk and facilitating the funding needs of the Company. The amounts in the maturity/rate sensitivity table below

represent management's estimates and assumptions. Also, the amounts could be significantly affected by external factors such as prepayment rates other than those assumed, early withdrawals of deposits, changes in the correlation of various interest-bearing instruments, competition and a general rise in interest rates. Decisions by management to purchase or sell assets, or retire debt could change the maturity/repricing and spread relationships. TCF's one-year interest-rate gap was a negative $184.7 million, or (2)% of total assets, at December 31, 1997, compared with a positive $114 million, or 2% of total assets, at December 31, 1996. 31

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Financial Review - (Continued) The following table provides information about TCF's financial instruments and derivative financial instruments that are held for purposes other than trading and are sensitive to changes in interest rates. For loans held for sale, securities available for sale, real estate loans, other loans, and liabilities with contractual maturities, the table presents principal cash flows and related weighted-average interest rates by contractual maturities as modified by the Company's historical experience of the impact of interest rate fluctuations on the prepayment of the assets. For checking, passbook and statement and money market deposits that have no contractual maturity, the table presents principal cash flows and, as applicable, related weighted-average interest rates based on the Company's historical experience, management's judgment, and statistical analysis, with respect to customer account retention. For forward mortgage loan sales commitments, the table presents notional amounts and, as applicable, weightedaverage interest rates by contractual maturity date. Notional amounts are used to calculate the contractual payments to be exchanged under the commitments. For commitments to extend credit, the balance represents the notional amount of the off-balance-sheet item and the average interest rate represents the weighted average interest rate of the underlying loans. The expected principal/notional maturity amounts at December 31, 1997 are as follows:

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (1) SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (1) SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES BASIS OF PRESENTATION The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of TCF Financial Corporation and its wholly owned subsidiaries. TCF Financial Corporation ("TCF" or the "Company") is a national bank holding company engaged primarily in retail community banking, consumer finance lending and lease financing through its wholly owned subsidiaries, TCF National Bank Minnesota ("TCF Minnesota"), TCF National Bank Illinois ("TCF Illinois"), TCF National Bank Wisconsin, TCF National Bank Colorado, and Great Lakes National Bank Michigan. The preparation of TCF financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain reclassifications have been made to prior years' financial statements to conform to the current year presentation. For consolidated statements of cash flows purposes, cash and cash equivalents include cash and due from banks. EARNINGS PER SHARE In February 1997, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 128, "Earnings per Share." SFAS No. 128 establishes standards for computing and presenting earnings per share ("EPS") and applies to entities with publicly held common stock or potential common stock. SFAS No. 128 supersedes the standards for computing EPS previously found in Accounting Principles Board ("APB") Opinion No. 15, "Earnings per Share." TCF adopted SFAS No. 128 effective December 31, 1997. In accordance with SFAS No. 128, all prior-period EPS data has been restated. The following table reconciles the weighted average shares outstanding and the income before extraordinary item available to common shareholders used for basic and diluted EPS:

CHANGE IN METHOD OF ACCOUNTING FOR TRANSFERS AND SERVICING OF FINANCIAL ASSETS AND EXTINGUISHMENTS OF LIABILITIES Effective January 1, 1997, TCF adopted the provisions of SFAS No. 125, "Accounting for Transfers and Servicing of Financial Assets and Extinguishments of Liabilities," not deferred by SFAS No. 127, "Deferral of the Effective Date of Certain Provisions of FASB Statement No. 125." The adoption of SFAS No. 125 did not impact TCF's financial condition or results of operations. ACCOUNTING FOR STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION In October 1995, the FASB issued SFAS No. 123, "Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation." SFAS No. 123 establishes financial accounting and reporting standards for stock-based employee compensation plans. SFAS No. 123 defines a fair value based method of accounting for an employee stock option or similar equity instrument and encourages all entities to adopt that method of accounting for all of their employee stock compensation plans. However, it also allows an entity to continue to measure compensation cost for those plans using the intrinsic value based method of accounting prescribed by APB Opinion No. 25, "Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees." Entities electing to retain the accounting under APB Opinion No. 25 must make pro forma disclosures of net income and earnings per share as if the fair value based method of accounting under SFAS No. 123 had been applied. TCF has elected to retain the intrinsic value based method of accounting. See Note 18 for additional information concerning SFAS No. 123. INVESTMENTS Investments are carried at cost, adjusted for amortization of premiums or accretion of discounts using methods which approximate a level yield. SECURITIES AVAILABLE FOR SALE Securities available for sale are carried at fair value with the unrealized holding gains or losses, net of deferred income taxes, reported as a separate component of stockholders' equity. Cost of securities sold is determined on a specific identification basis and gains or losses on sales of securities available for sale are recognized at trade dates. LOANS HELD FOR SALE Residential real estate and education loans held for sale are carried at the lower of cost or market determined on an aggregate basis. Cost of loans sold is determined on a specific identification basis and gains or losses on sales of loans held for sale are recognized at settlement dates. Net fees and costs associated with originating and acquiring loans held for sale are deferred and are included in the basis for determining the gain or loss on sales of loans held for sale. LOANS AND LEASES Net fees and costs associated with originating and acquiring loans and leases are deferred and amortized over the lives of the assets. Net fees and costs associated with loan commitments are deferred in other assets or other liabilities until the loan is advanced. Discounts and premiums on loans purchased, net deferred fees and/or costs, unearned discounts and finance charges, and unearned lease income, which are considered yield adjustments, are amortized using methods which approximate a level yield over the estimated remaining lives of the loans and leases. Leases that transfer substantially all of the benefits and risks of equipment ownership to the lessee are classified as direct financing or sales-type leases and are included in loans and leases. Direct financing and sales-type leases are carried at the combined present value of the future minimum lease payments and the lease residual value,

CHANGE IN METHOD OF ACCOUNTING FOR TRANSFERS AND SERVICING OF FINANCIAL ASSETS AND EXTINGUISHMENTS OF LIABILITIES Effective January 1, 1997, TCF adopted the provisions of SFAS No. 125, "Accounting for Transfers and Servicing of Financial Assets and Extinguishments of Liabilities," not deferred by SFAS No. 127, "Deferral of the Effective Date of Certain Provisions of FASB Statement No. 125."

Entities electing to retain the accounting under APB Opinion No. 25 must make pro forma disclosures of net income and earnings per share as if the fair value based method of accounting under SFAS No. 123 had been applied. TCF has elected to retain the intrinsic value based method of accounting. See Note 18 for additional information concerning SFAS No. 123. INVESTMENTS Investments are carried at cost, adjusted for amortization of premiums or accretion of discounts using methods which approximate a level yield. SECURITIES AVAILABLE FOR SALE Securities available for sale are carried at fair value with the unrealized holding gains or losses, net of deferred income taxes, reported as a separate component of stockholders' equity. Cost of securities sold is determined on a specific identification basis and gains or losses on sales of securities available for sale are recognized at trade dates. LOANS HELD FOR SALE Residential real estate and education loans held for sale are carried at the lower of cost or market determined on an aggregate basis. Cost of loans sold is determined on a specific identification basis and gains or losses on sales of loans held for sale are recognized at settlement dates. Net fees and costs associated with originating and acquiring loans held for sale are deferred and are included in the basis for determining the gain or loss on sales of loans held for sale. LOANS AND LEASES Net fees and costs associated with originating and acquiring loans and leases are deferred and amortized over the lives of the assets. Net fees and costs associated with loan commitments are deferred in other assets or other liabilities until the loan is advanced. Discounts and premiums on loans purchased, net deferred fees and/or costs, unearned discounts and finance charges, and unearned lease income, which are considered yield adjustments, are amortized using methods which approximate a level yield over the estimated remaining lives of the loans and leases. Leases that transfer substantially all of the benefits and risks of equipment ownership to the lessee are classified as direct financing or sales-type leases and are included in loans and leases. Direct financing and sales-type leases are carried at the combined present value of the future minimum lease payments and the lease residual value, which represents the estimated fair value of the leased equipment at the termination of the lease based on management's experience and judgment. Lease residual values are reviewed on an ongoing basis and any downward revisions are recorded in the periods in which they become known. Interest income on direct financing and sales-type leases is recognized using methods which approximate a level yield over the term of the leases.

Sales-type leases generate dealer profit which is recognized at lease inception by recording lease revenue net of the lease cost. Revenue consists of the present value of the future minimum lease payments discounted at the rate implicit in the lease. Cost consists of the leased equipment's book value, less the present value of its residual. Impaired loans include all non-accrual and restructured commercial real estate and commercial business loans. Consumer and residential real estate loans and lease financings are excluded from the definition of an impaired loan. Loan impairment is measured as the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the loan's initial effective interest rate, the fair value of the collateral of an impaired collateral-dependent loan or an observable market price. The allowance for loan and lease losses is maintained at a level believed to be adequate by management to provide for estimated loan and lease losses. Management's judgment as to the adequacy of the allowance is a result of ongoing review of larger individual loans and leases, the overall risk characteristics of the portfolios, changes in the character or size of the portfolios, the level of non-performing assets, net charge-offs, geographic location and prevailing economic conditions. The allowance for loan and lease losses is established for known or anticipated problem loans and leases, as well as for loans and leases which are not currently known to require specific allowances. Loans and leases are charged off to the extent they are deemed to be uncollectible. The adequacy of the allowance 41

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements - (Continued) for loan and lease losses is highly dependent upon management's estimates of variables affecting valuation, appraisals of collateral, evaluations of performance and status, and the amounts and timing of future cash flows expected to be received on impaired loans. Such estimates, appraisals, evaluations and cash flows may be subject to frequent adjustments due to changing economic prospects of borrowers, lessees or properties. These estimates are reviewed periodically and adjustments, if necessary, are recorded in the provision for credit losses in the periods in which they become known. Interest income is accrued on loan and lease balances outstanding. Loans and leases, including loans that are considered to be impaired, are reviewed regularly by management and are placed on non-accrual status when the collection of interest or principal is 90 days or more past due, unless the loan or lease is adequately secured and in the process of collection. When a loan or lease is placed on non-accrual status, unless collection of all principal and interest is considered to be assured, uncollected interest accrued in prior years is charged off against the allowance for loan and lease losses. Interest accrued in the current year is reversed. Interest payments received on non-accrual loans and leases are generally applied to principal unless the remaining principal balance has been determined to be fully collectible. Cost of loans sold is determined on a specific identification basis and gains or losses on sales of loans are recognized at trade dates. PREMISES AND EQUIPMENT Premises and equipment are carried at cost and are depreciated or amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives. OTHER REAL ESTATE OWNED Real estate in judgment and real estate acquired through foreclosure are recorded at the lower of cost or fair value minus estimated costs to sell at the date of transfer to other real estate owned. If the fair value of an asset minus the estimated costs to sell should decline to less than the carrying amount of the asset, the deficiency is recognized in the period in which it becomes known and is included in other non-interest expense. MORTGAGE SERVICING RIGHTS

MORTGAGE SERVICING RIGHTS Mortgage servicing rights are capitalized and amortized in proportion to, and over the period of, estimated net servicing income. TCF periodically evaluates its capitalized mortgage servicing rights for impairment. Loan type and note rate are the predominant risk characteristics of the underlying loans used to stratify capitalized mortgage servicing rights for purposes of measuring impairment. Any impairment is recognized through a valuation allowance. INTANGIBLE ASSETS Goodwill resulting from acquisitions is amortized over 25 years on a straight-line basis. Deposit base intangibles are amortized over 10 years on an accelerated basis. The Company periodically reviews the recoverability of the carrying values of these assets. SECURITIES SOLD UNDER REPURCHASE AGREEMENTS TCF enters into sales of securities under repurchase agreements (reverse repurchase agreements). Such agreements are treated as financings, and the obligations to repurchase securities sold are reflected as liabilities in the Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition. The securities underlying the agreements remain in the asset accounts in the Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

TCF utilizes derivative financial instruments in order to meet the ongoing credit needs of its customers and in order to manage the market exposure of its residential loans held for sale portfolio and its commitments to extend credit for residential loans. Derivative financial instruments include commitments to extend credit and forward mortgage loan sales commitments. See Note 16 for additional information concerning these derivative financial instruments. ADVERTISING AND PROMOTIONS Expenditures for advertising costs are expensed as incurred. INCOME TAXES Income taxes are accounted for using the asset and liability method. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. 42

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements - (Continued) (2) BUSINESS COMBINATIONS AND ACQUISITIONS STANDARD FINANCIAL, INC. On September 4, 1997, TCF acquired all of the outstanding common stock of Standard Financial, Inc. ("Standard"), a community-oriented thrift institution with $2.6 billion in assets, $1.9 billion in deposits, and 14 fullservice offices on the southwest side of Chicago and in the nearby southwestern and western suburbs, for a purchase price of $423.7 million, which consisted of $237.9 million in cash, including payments of $20.8 million to the holders of all of the outstanding employee and director options to purchase Standard common stock, and 7,700,000 shares of TCF common stock. The acquisition has been accounted for by the purchase method of accounting and, accordingly, the results of operations of Standard have been included in TCF's consolidated financial statements from September 4, 1997. The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed of approximately $151 million has been recorded as goodwill and is being amortized over 25 years on a straight-line basis. In connection with the acquisition, Standard was merged into TCF's existing Illinoisbased wholly owned national bank subsidiary, TCF Illinois. The following unaudited pro forma financial information presents the combined results of operations of TCF and Standard as if the acquisition had been effective January 1, 1995 after giving effect to certain adjustments, including amortization and accretion of discounts, premiums, goodwill and deposit base intangibles, foregone interest income resulting from the planned sale of securities available for sale, reduced occupancy and equipment expense resulting from the write-off of certain fixed assets and duplicative data processing hardware and software, increased interest expense on debt related to the acquisition, and related income tax effects. The pro forma financial information does not necessarily reflect the results of operations that would have occurred had TCF and Standard constituted a single entity during such periods. TCF expects that the acquisition of Standard will enhance future revenues through improved interest rate margins and fee income as a result of expanded product and service offerings to Standard customers. TCF also expects to achieve operating cost savings primarily through reductions in staff and the consolidation of certain functions such as data processing, investments and other back office operations at Standard. The revenue enhancements and operating cost savings are expected to be achieved in various amounts at various times during the years subsequent to the acquisition of Standard and not ratably over, or at the beginning or end of, such periods. No adjustment has been reflected in the following pro forma financial information for the revenue enhancements or anticipated cost savings.

WINTHROP RESOURCES CORPORATION On June 24, 1997, TCF completed its acquisition of Winthrop Resources Corporation ("Winthrop"), a leasing company with $363 million in assets. Winthrop leases computers, telecommunications equipment, point-of-sale systems and other business-essential equipment to companies nationwide. In connection with the acquisition, TCF issued approximately 13.4 million shares of its common stock for all of the outstanding common shares of Winthrop. TCF also assumed the obligation to issue common stock upon the exercise of the outstanding employee and director options to purchase Winthrop common stock. Winthrop is operated as a direct subsidiary of TCF Minnesota. The consolidated financial statements of TCF give effect to the acquisition, which has been accounted for as a pooling-of-interests combination. Accordingly, TCF's consolidated financial statements for periods prior to the combination have been restated to include the accounts and the results of operations of Winthrop for all periods presented, except for dividends declared per share. There were no material intercompany transactions prior to the acquisition and no material differences in the accounting and reporting policies of TCF and Winthrop. 43

BOC FINANCIAL CORPORATION On January 16, 1997, TCF completed its purchase of BOC Financial Corporation ("BOC"), an Illinois-based bank holding company with $183.1 million in assets and $168 million in deposits. TCF accounted for the acquisition using the purchase method of accounting.

GREAT LAKES BANCORP, A FEDERAL SAVINGS BANK On February 8, 1995, TCF completed its acquisition of Great Lakes Bancorp, A Federal Savings Bank ("Great Lakes"), a Michigan-based savings bank with $2.8 billion in assets and $1.6 billion in deposits. In connection with the acquisition, TCF issued approximately 19.4 million shares of its common stock for all of the outstanding common shares of Great Lakes. In addition, each outstanding share of Great Lakes preferred stock was exchanged for one share of TCF preferred stock with substantially identical terms. The consolidated financial statements of TCF give effect to the acquisition, which has been accounted for as a pooling-of-interests combination. Accordingly, TCF's consolidated financial statements for periods prior to the combination have been restated to include the accounts and the results of operations of Great Lakes for all periods presented, except for dividends declared per share. In connection with the acquisition, an after-tax merger-related charge of $32.8 million was incurred during the 1995 first quarter. The following table summarizes the major components of the merger-related charges (in thousands):
Loss on sale of mortgage-backed securities Loss on sale of securities available for sale Loss on prepayment of FHLB advances Interest-rate exchange contract termination costs Provision for credit losses Merger-related expenses: Equipment charges Severance and employee benefits Professional fees Other Total merger-related expenses Total pretax merger-related charges $21,037 310 1,541 (1) 4,423 5,000 13,933 4,721 2,215 864 ------21,733 ------$54,044 -------------

(1) Reflected in the Consolidated Statements of Operations as an extraordinary item, net of tax benefit of $578. During 1995, Great Lakes sold $232.2 million of collateralized mortgage obligations from its held-to-maturity portfolio at a pretax loss of $21 million. Proceeds from the sale of collateralized mortgage obligations totaled $211.1 million. Gross losses of $21 million and gross gains of $8,000 were recognized in 1995. Also in 1995, Great Lakes sold $17.3 million of securities available for sale at a pretax loss of $310,000. These 44

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements -- (Continued) merger-related asset sales were completed as part of TCF's strategy to reduce Great Lakes' interest-rate and credit risk to levels consistent with TCF's existing interest-rate risk position and credit risk policy. In addition to these asset sales, Great Lakes prepaid $112.3 million of Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advances at a pretax loss of $1.5 million during 1995. This amount, net of a $578,000 income tax benefit, was recorded as an extraordinary item. Interest-rate exchange contracts with notional principal amounts totaling $544.5 million were terminated by Great Lakes at a pretax loss of $4.4 million. These actions were taken in order to reduce Great Lakes' level of higher-cost wholesale borrowings and to reduce interest-rate risk. Great Lakes recorded $5 million in provisions for credit losses in 1995 to conform its credit loss reserve practices and methods to those of TCF and to allow for the accelerated disposition of its remaining problem assets. In connection with its acquisition of Great Lakes, TCF committed to restructure certain existing business activities of Great Lakes and to integrate Great Lakes' data processing system into TCF's. These actions were also

Interest-rate exchange contracts with notional principal amounts totaling $544.5 million were terminated by Great Lakes at a pretax loss of $4.4 million. These actions were taken in order to reduce Great Lakes' level of higher-cost wholesale borrowings and to reduce interest-rate risk. Great Lakes recorded $5 million in provisions for credit losses in 1995 to conform its credit loss reserve practices and methods to those of TCF and to allow for the accelerated disposition of its remaining problem assets. In connection with its acquisition of Great Lakes, TCF committed to restructure certain existing business activities of Great Lakes and to integrate Great Lakes' data processing system into TCF's. These actions were also designed to reduce staff by consolidating certain functions such as data processing, investments and certain other back office operations. Subsequent to its merger with TCF, Great Lakes recognized a pretax charge of $21.7 million for these restructuring and merger-related expenses. ACQUISITION On January 30, 1998, TCF Illinois completed its acquisition of 76 branches in Jewel-Osco stores in the Chicago area previously operated by Bank of America. TCF Illinois converted existing deposits by offering TCF Illinois products to Bank of America customers and acquired the related fixed assets and 178 ATMs located in JewelOsco stores at no cost. TCF accounted for the acquisition using the purchase method of accounting. (3) INVESTMENTS Investments consist of the following:

Accrued interest receivable on securities available for sale was $9.5 million and $6.5 million at December 31, 1997 and 1996, respectively. Proceeds from sales of securities available for sale totaled $476.2 million, $16.6 million and $90.6 million during 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively. Gross gains of $9.1 million, $102,000 and $442,000 and gross losses of $602,000, $16,000 and $594,000 were recognized during 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively. In November 1995, the FASB issued a Special Report entitled "A Guide to Implementation of Statement No. 115 on Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities." In conjunction with the issuance of the guide, the FASB provided entities with a one-time opportunity to reassess the classification of their held-tomaturity debt securities without calling into question the entities' intent to hold to maturity their remaining portfolio of such securities. During the 1995 fourth quarter, TCF reassessed the balance sheet classifications of its mortgage-backed securities. As a result, TCF reclassified its remaining $1.2 billion in mortgage-backed securities from "held to maturity" to "available for sale" effective December 31, 1995. This reclassification allowed for increased asset/liability management flexibility. (5) LOANS HELD FOR SALE Loans held for sale consist of the following:

Accrued interest receivable on loans was $39.3 million and $30 million at December 31, 1997 and 1996, respectively. At December 31, 1997, the recorded investment in loans that are considered to be impaired was $7.2 million for which the related allowance for loan losses was $1.7 million. All of the impaired loans were on non-accrual status. The average recorded investment in impaired loans during the year ended December 31, 1997 was $13.5 million. For the year ended December 31, 1997, TCF recognized interest income on impaired loans of $417,000, of which $208,000 was recognized using the cash basis method of income recognition. At December 31, 1996, the recorded investment in loans that are considered to be impaired was $10.4 million for which the related allowance for loan losses was $2.8 million. The balance of impaired loans on non-accrual status was $8.8 million at December 31, 1996. The average recorded investment in impaired loans during the

year ended December 31, 1996 was $22.1 million. For the year ended December 31, 1996, TCF recognized interest income on impaired loans of $926,000, of which $878,000 was recognized using the cash basis method of income recognition. At December 31, 1997, 1996 and 1995, loans and leases on non-accrual status totaled $36.8 million, $26.4 million and $44.3 million, respectively. Had the loans and leases performed in accordance with their original terms throughout 1997, TCF would have recorded gross interest income of $4.7 million for these loans and leases. Interest income of $2.9 million has been recorded on these loans and leases for the year ended December 31, 1997. Included in loans and leases at December 31, 1997 and 1996, are commercial real estate loans aggregating $1.3 million and $3 million, respectively, with terms that have been modified in troubled debt restructurings. Had the loans performed in accordance with their original terms throughout 1997, TCF would have recorded gross interest income of $197,000 for these loans. Interest income of $135,000 has been recorded on these loans for the year ended December 31, 1997. 47

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements -- (Continued) There were no material commitments to lend additional funds to customers whose loans or leases were classified as restructured or non-accrual at December 31, 1997. Included in commercial real estate loans at December 31, 1997 and 1996, are $32.2 million and $35.8 million, respectively, of loans to facilitate the sale of real estate accounted for by the installment method. The installment method of accounting was applied because the borrower's initial and continuing investment was not adequate for full accrual profit recognition. TCF had 60 consumer finance offices in 16 states as of December 31, 1997. TCF's consumer finance loan portfolio totaled $521.5 million at December 31, 1997, compared with $496.3 million at December 31, 1996. The underwriting criteria for loans originated by TCF's consumer finance offices are generally less stringent than those historically adhered to by TCF and, as a result, these loans have a higher level of credit risk.

The balance of such financial guarantees totaled $11.8 million and $12.2 million at December 31, 1997 and 1996, respectively. The provision for credit losses on industrial revenue bond financial guarantees reflects a reduction in the balance of the financial guarantees.

(Dollars in thousands) Maturity: January 1998 August 1998

(1) Includes accrued interest. The securities underlying the repurchase agreements are book entry securities. During the period, book entry securities were delivered by appropriate entry into the counterparties' accounts through the Federal Reserve System. The dealers may sell, loan or otherwise dispose of such securities to other parties in the normal course of their operations, but have agreed to resell to TCF identical or substantially the same securities upon the maturities of the agreements. At December 31, 1997, all of the securities sold under repurchase agreements provided for the repurchase of identical securities. Securities sold under repurchase agreements averaged $341.1 million and $498.4 million during 1997 and 1996, respectively, and the maximum amount outstanding at any month-end during 1997 and 1996 was $469.7 million and $647.7 million, respectively. Great Lakes prepaid $112.3 million of FHLB advances at a pretax loss of $1.5 million during 1995. This amount, net of a $578,000 income tax benefit, was recorded as an extraordinary item in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. During 1997, TCF redeemed the convertible subordinated debentures (the "Debentures") at par plus accrued and unpaid interest to the date of redemption. The Debentures were convertible into TCF common stock at a conversion price of $8.52 per share. TCF issued approximately 839,000 shares of common stock in connection with the conversion of the remaining $7.1 million of Debentures.

The $28.8 million of senior subordinated debentures mature in July 2003. These debentures will be redeemable at par plus accrued interest to the date of redemption beginning July 1, 2001. The $6.2 million of 18% Senior Subordinated Debentures due 2006 (the "Senior Debentures") will be redeemable at par beginning March 1, 1998. TCF intends to exercise its right of redemption on the Senior Debentures in 1998. At December 31, 1997, mortgage-backed securities collateralizing TCF's collateralized mortgage obligations had a market value of $2.5 million. TCF has a $100 million bank line of credit which is unsecured and contains certain covenants common to such agreements with which TCF is in compliance. The interest rate on the line of credit is based on either the prime rate or LIBOR. TCF has the option to select the interest rate and term for the line of credit. The line of credit expires in October 1998. FHLB advances are collateralized by FHLB stock and residential real estate loans with an aggregate carrying value of $2.1 billion at December 31, 1997.

Total income tax expense of $95.8 million, $61 million and $45.5 million for the years ended December 31, 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively, did not include tax benefits specifically allocated to stockholders' equity. The tax benefit allocated to additional paid-in capital for compensation expense for tax purposes in excess of amounts recognized for financial reporting purposes totaled $2.3 million, $2.5 million and $2.1 million for the years ended December 31, 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively. At December 31, 1997, TCF has net operating loss ("NOL") carryforwards for federal income tax purposes of $3.8 million, which are available to offset future federal taxable income through 2008, as a result of the acquisition of BOC. The realization of the NOLs is subject to certain Internal Revenue Code ("IRC") limitations. In addition, TCF has certain alternative minimum tax ("AMT") credit carryforwards of approximately $1 million, which are available to reduce future federal income taxes over an indefinite period as a result of the acquisitions of BOC and Winthrop. The realization of the AMT credits is subject to certain IRC limitations. TCF has, in its judgment, made certain reasonable assumptions relating to the realizability of the deferred tax assets. Based upon these assumptions, the Company has determined that no valuation allowance is required with respect to the deferred tax assets. Income tax expense differs from the amounts computed by applying the federal income tax rate of 35% to income before income tax expense and extraordinary item as a result of the following:

(14) STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY RESTRICTED RETAINED EARNINGS In general, TCF's subsidiary banks may not declare or pay a dividend to TCF in excess of 100% of their net profits for that year combined with their retained net profits for the preceding two calendar years without prior approval of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency ("OCC"). Based on their retained net profits as of December 31, 1997, TCF's subsidiary banks currently would be permitted to make additional capital distributions under OCC regulations of approximately $33.3 million. Additional limitations on dividends declared or paid on, or repurchases of, TCF's subsidiary banks' capital stock are tied to the national banks' level of compliance with their regulatory capital requirements. Undistributed earnings at December 31, 1997 includes approximately $134.4 million for which no provision for federal income tax has been made. This amount represents earnings appropriated to bad debt reserves and deducted for federal income tax purposes and is generally not available for payment of cash dividends or other distributions to shareholders. Payments or distributions of these appropriated earnings could invoke a tax liability for TCF based on the amount of earnings removed and current tax rates. In August 1996, federal legislation was enacted which repealed the favorable bad debt method for savings and loan associations. Subsequent to this repeal, TCF continues to be subject to this potential tax liability to the extent payments or distributions of these appropriated earnings occur. SHAREHOLDER RIGHTS PLAN TCF's preferred share purchase rights will become exercisable only if a person or group acquires or announces

an offer to acquire 15% or more of TCF's common stock. This triggering percentage may be reduced to no less than 10% by TCF's Board of Directors (the "Board") under certain circumstances. When exercisable, each right will entitle the holder to buy one one-hundredth of a share of a new series of junior participating preferred stock at a price of $90 per share. In addition, upon the occurrence of certain events, holders of the rights will be entitled to purchase either TCF's common stock or shares in an "acquiring entity" at half of the market value. The Board is generally entitled to redeem the rights at 1 cent per right at any time before they become exercisable. The rights will expire on June 9, 1999, if not previously redeemed or exercised. STOCK SPLIT On October 20, 1997, the Board declared a two-for-one stock split in the form of a 100% common stock dividend payable November 28, 1997 to stockholders of record as of November 7, 1997. The stock split increased TCF's outstanding common shares from 46.4 million to 92.8 million shares. Stockholders' equity has been restated to give retroactive recognition to the stock split for all periods presented by reclassifying from additional paid-in capital to common 55

In addition, all references in the Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto to number of shares, per-share amounts, stock option data and market prices of the Company's common stock have been restated giving retroactive recognition to the stock split. STOCK OFFERING On June 3, 1997, TCF completed a public offering of 1,400,000 shares of its common stock at a price of $21.6875 per share. The purpose of the offering was to meet one of the criteria for TCF's merger with Winthrop to be accounted for as a pooling of interests. The net proceeds of $29.3 million were used as a portion of the cash consideration paid in connection with the acquisition of Standard. TREASURY STOCK On December 19, 1995, the Board authorized the repurchase of up to 5% of TCF common stock, or 3.6 million shares. On January 20, 1997, the Board authorized the repurchase of up to 5% of TCF common stock, or 3.5 million shares. On February 25, 1997, the Board formally rescinded TCF's common stock repurchase program in connection with the Company's merger with Winthrop. On January 19, 1998, the Board authorized the repurchase of up to 5% of TCF common stock, or 4.6 million shares. TCF purchased 1,295,800, 2,380,136 and 64,800 shares of common stock during the years ended December 31, 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively. PREFERRED STOCK On July 3, 1995, TCF exercised its right of redemption on its 2.7 million shares of preferred stock at $10 per share. STOCK WARRANTS In connection with TCF's acquisition of Great Lakes, TCF assumed the obligation to issue common stock upon the exercise of the outstanding warrants to purchase Great Lakes common stock. The warrants to purchase common stock expired on July 1, 1995. (15) REGULATORY CAPITAL REQUIREMENTS TCF is subject to various regulatory capital requirements administered by the federal banking agencies.

(15) REGULATORY CAPITAL REQUIREMENTS TCF is subject to various regulatory capital requirements administered by the federal banking agencies. Failure to meet minimum capital requirements can initiate certain mandatory, and possibly additional discretionary, actions by the federal banking agencies, that, if undertaken, could have a direct material effect on TCF's financial statements. Under capital adequacy guidelines and the regulatory framework for "prompt corrective action," TCF must meet specific capital guidelines that involve quantitative measures of the Company's assets, stockholders' equity, and certain off-balance-sheet items as calculated under regulatory accounting practices. The following table sets forth the Tier 1 leverage, Tier 1 risk-based and total risk-based capital levels, and applicable percentages of adjusted assets, together with the excess over the minimum capital requirements for TCF at December 31, 1997 and 1996:

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements - (Continued) (16) FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS WITH OFF-BALANCE-SHEET RISK TCF is a party to financial instruments with off-balance-sheet risk in the normal course of business, primarily to meet the financing needs of its customers. These financial instruments, which are issued or held by TCF for purposes other than trading, include commitments to extend credit, standby letters of credit, financial guarantees written, forward mortgage loan sales commitments, and financial guarantees on certain loans sold with recourse and on other contingent obligations. These instruments involve, to varying degrees, elements of credit and interest-rate risk in excess of the amount recognized in the Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition. The contract or notional amounts of those instruments reflect the extent of involvement TCF has in particular classes of financial instruments. TCF's exposure to credit loss in the event of non-performance by the counterparty to the financial instrument for commitments to extend credit, standby letters of credit, financial guarantees written and financial guarantees on certain loans sold with recourse is represented by the contractual amount of the commitments. TCF uses the same credit policies in making commitments and conditional obligations as it does for on-balance-sheet instruments. For Veterans Administration ("VA") loans serviced with partial recourse and forward mortgage loan sales commitments, the contract or notional amount exceeds TCF's exposure to credit loss. TCF controls the credit risk of forward mortgage loan sales commitments through credit approvals, credit limits and monitoring procedures. Unless noted otherwise, TCF does not require collateral or other security to support financial instruments with credit risk. The contract or notional amounts of these financial instruments are as follows:

COMMITMENTS TO EXTEND CREDIT As part of its normal business operations, and in order to meet the ongoing credit needs of its customers, TCF has outstanding at any time a significant number of commitments to extend credit. Commitments to extend credit are agreements to lend to a customer provided there is no violation of any condition established in the contract. These commitments take the form of mortgage loan applications, approved loans, commercial business and consumer credit line products and lease applications. Commitments generally have fixed expiration dates or other termination clauses and may require payment of a fee. Since certain of the commitments are expected to expire without being drawn upon, the total commitment amounts do not necessarily represent future cash requirements. TCF evaluates each customer's creditworthiness on a case-by-case basis. The amount of collateral obtained, if deemed necessary by TCF upon extension of credit, is based on management's credit evaluation of the borrower. Collateral predominantly consists of residential and commercial real estate and personal property. Included in the total commitments to extend credit at December 31, 1997 were mortgage loan commitments and loans in process aggregating $908.8 million, including commercial and residential construction and development commitments totaling $84.4 million. Of the total mortgage loan commitments and loans in process at December 31, 1997, $221.4 million were for fixed-rate loans. Also included in the total commitments to extend credit at

December 31, 1997 were various consumer credit line products aggregating $537.7 million, of which $46 million were unsecured and $483.9 million were mortgage loan commitments. STANDBY LETTERS OF CREDIT Standby letters of credit are conditional commitments issued by TCF guaranteeing the performance of a customer to a third party. The standby letters of credit are primarily issued to support public and private borrowing arrangements including bond financing, and expire in various years through the year 2005. The credit risk involved in issuing standby letters of credit is essentially the same as that involved in making commercial loans to customers. The amount of collateral TCF obtains to support 57

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements - (Continued) standby letters of credit is based on management's credit evaluation of the borrower. Collateral held primarily consists of commercial real estate mortgages. Since the conditions under which TCF is required to fund standby letters of credit may not materialize, the cash requirements are expected to be less than the total outstanding commitments. TCF's commitments to the beneficiaries under its outstanding standby letters of credit at December 31, 1997 were collateralized by $24.3 million of TCF's mortgage-backed securities. FINANCIAL GUARANTEES WRITTEN Financial guarantees written represent agreements whereby, for a fee, certain of TCF's mortgage-backed securities are pledged as collateral for Housing Revenue Bonds and Industrial Development Revenue Bonds which were issued by municipalities to finance commercial and multi-family real estate owned by third parties. In the event the third-party borrowers default on principal or interest payments on the bonds, TCF is required to either pay the amount in default or acquire the then outstanding bonds. TCF may foreclose on the underlying real estate to recover amounts in default. At December 31, 1997, the financial guarantees totaled $11.8 million and mortgage-backed securities aggregating approximately $22.1 million were held by the trustees as collateral for these financial guarantees. Further, in order to protect TCF's ability to recover losses in the event of default by the third-party borrowers, TCF may also be required to pay real estate taxes and other liabilities of the underlying collateral. The collateral agreements expire on various dates from 2004 through 2011. LOANS SOLD WITH RECOURSE AND VA LOANS SERVICED WITH PARTIAL RECOURSE During the normal course of business, TCF may sell certain loans with limited recourse provisions. In addition, TCF services VA loans on which it must cover any principal loss in excess of the VA's guarantee if the VA elects its "no-bid" option upon the foreclosure of a loan. A significant portion of the loans are partially supported by government-sponsored insurance, private mortgage insurance or the VA partial guarantee, and all of the loans are collateralized by residential real estate. FORWARD MORTGAGE LOAN SALES COMMITMENTS As part of its residential mortgage banking operation, TCF enters into forward mortgage loan sales commitments in order to manage the market exposure on its residential loans held for sale and its commitments to extend credit for residential loans. Because gains or losses to be realized on the sale of residential loans held for sale are dependent on interest rates, forward mortgage loan sales commitments are used to reduce the impact of changes in interest rates on TCF's mortgage banking operation. Forward mortgage loan sales commitments are contracts for the delivery of mortgage loans or pools of loans in which TCF agrees to make delivery at a specified future date of a specified instrument, at a specified price or yield. Risks arise from the possible inability of the counterparties to meet the terms of their contracts and from movements in mortgage loan values and interest rates. Included in the total at December 31, 1997 and 1996 were $15 million and $14 million, respectively, of standby forward mortgage loan sales commitments for which TCF has the option to deliver the mortgage loans. Premiums paid for standby forward mortgage loan sales commitments are amortized to gain on sale of loans held for sale over the terms of the agreements.

Premiums paid for standby forward mortgage loan sales commitments are amortized to gain on sale of loans held for sale over the terms of the agreements. The fair value of the forward mortgage loan sales commitments is not recognized in the financial statements. (17) FAIR VALUES OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS TCF is required to disclose the estimated fair value of financial instruments, both assets and liabilities on and off the balance sheet, for which it is practicable to estimate fair value. Fair value estimates are made at a specific point in time, based on relevant market information and information about the financial instruments. These estimates do not reflect any premium or discount that could result from offering for sale at one time TCF's entire holdings of a particular financial instrument. Because no market exists for a significant portion of TCF's financial instruments, fair value estimates are subjective in nature, involving uncertainties and matters of significant judgment, and therefore cannot be determined with precision. Changes in assumptions could significantly affect the estimates.

Fair value estimates are based on existing on- and off-balance-sheet financial instruments without attempting to estimate the value of anticipated future business and the value of assets and liabilities that are not considered financial instruments. For example, TCF has established customer relationships that contribute significant fee income annually. These customer relationships are not considered financial instruments, and their values have not been incorporated into the fair value estimates. Certain financial instruments, including lease financings and discounted lease rentals, and all non-financial instruments are excluded from fair value of financial instrument disclosure requirements. In addition, the tax effects of unrealized gains and losses have not been considered in the estimates, nor have costs necessary to execute a sale been considered. Accordingly, the aggregate fair value amounts presented do not represent the underlying value of TCF, or the value TCF would realize in a negotiated sale of these instruments. 58

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements - (Continued) LOANS HELD FOR SALE The fair value of residential mortgage loans held for sale is estimated based on quoted market prices. The fair value of education loans held for sale is estimated based on an existing forward sale agreement TCF has with the Student Loan Marketing Association, or on sales of comparable loans. The estimated fair value of capitalized mortgage servicing rights totaled $32.2 million at December 31, 1997, compared with a carrying amount of $19.5 million. The estimated fair value of capitalized mortgage servicing rights is based on estimated cash flows discounted using rates commensurate with the risks involved. Assumptions regarding prepayments, defaults and interest rates are determined using available market information. LOANS The fair values of loans are estimated for portfolios of loans with similar characteristics. Loans are segregated by type, and include residential, commercial real estate, commercial business and consumer, and by sub-type within these categories. Each of these categories is further segmented into fixed- and adjustable-rate interest terms, and by performing and non-performing status. For certain variable-rate loans that reprice frequently and that have experienced no significant change in credit risk, fair values are based on carrying values. For certain homogeneous categories of loans, such as certain residential and consumer loans, fair values are estimated using quoted market prices. The fair values of other performing loans are estimated by discounting contractual cash flows adjusted for prepayment estimates, using interest rates currently being offered for loans with similar terms to borrowers with similar credit risk characteristics. The fair values of significant non-performing loans are based on recent internal or external appraisals, or estimated cash flows discounted using rates commensurate with the risks associated with the estimated cash flows. Assumptions regarding credit risk, cash flows and discount rates are judgmentally determined using available market information and specific borrower information. DEPOSITS The fair value of deposits with no stated maturity, such as checking, passbook and statement, and money market accounts, is deemed equal to the amount payable on demand. The fair value of certificates is estimated based on discounted cash flow analyses using interest rates offered by TCF at December 31, 1997 and 1996 for certificates of similar remaining maturities.

Assumptions regarding prepayments, defaults and interest rates are determined using available market information. LOANS The fair values of loans are estimated for portfolios of loans with similar characteristics. Loans are segregated by type, and include residential, commercial real estate, commercial business and consumer, and by sub-type within these categories. Each of these categories is further segmented into fixed- and adjustable-rate interest terms, and by performing and non-performing status. For certain variable-rate loans that reprice frequently and that have experienced no significant change in credit risk, fair values are based on carrying values. For certain homogeneous categories of loans, such as certain residential and consumer loans, fair values are estimated using quoted market prices. The fair values of other performing loans are estimated by discounting contractual cash flows adjusted for prepayment estimates, using interest rates currently being offered for loans with similar terms to borrowers with similar credit risk characteristics. The fair values of significant non-performing loans are based on recent internal or external appraisals, or estimated cash flows discounted using rates commensurate with the risks associated with the estimated cash flows. Assumptions regarding credit risk, cash flows and discount rates are judgmentally determined using available market information and specific borrower information. DEPOSITS The fair value of deposits with no stated maturity, such as checking, passbook and statement, and money market accounts, is deemed equal to the amount payable on demand. The fair value of certificates is estimated based on discounted cash flow analyses using interest rates offered by TCF at December 31, 1997 and 1996 for certificates of similar remaining maturities. The fair value estimates do not include the benefit that results from the lower-cost funding provided by deposits compared with the cost of wholesale borrowings. That benefit is commonly referred to as a deposit base intangible. BORROWINGS The carrying amounts of short-term borrowings approximate their fair values. The fair values of TCF's long-term borrowings are estimated based on quoted market prices or discounted cash flow analyses using interest rates offered at December 31, 1997 and 1996 for borrowings of similar remaining maturities. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS WITH OFF-BALANCE-SHEET RISK The fair values of residential commitments to extend credit and forward mortgage loan sales commitments associated with residential loans held for sale are based upon quoted market prices. The fair values of TCF's remaining commitments to extend credit, standby letters of credit and financial guarantees written are estimated using fees currently charged to enter into similar agreements, taking into account the remaining terms of the agreements and the present creditworthiness of the counterparties. For fixed-rate loan commitments and standby letters of credit issued in conjunction with fixed-rate loan agreements, fair value also considers the difference between current levels of interest rates and the committed rates. For financial guarantees written, fair value also considers reserves established relating to TCF's potential obligation on the outstanding guarantees. The carrying

amounts for commitments to extend credit and forward mortgage loan sales commitments are included in other assets in the Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition. The carrying amounts for standby letters of credit and financial guarantees written are included in accrued expenses and other liabilities in the Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition. In addition to the financial instruments with off-balance-sheet risk noted above, TCF had $16.7 million and $23.3 million of loans sold with recourse and serviced $335.9 million and $383.8 million of VA loans with partial recourse at December 31, 1997 and 1996, respectively. TCF has not incurred, and does not anticipate, significant losses as a result of the recourse provisions associated with these financial instruments. As a result, the carrying amounts and related estimated fair values of these financial instruments were not material at December 31, 1997 and 1996. 60

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements - (Continued) (18) STOCK OPTION AND INCENTIVE PLAN The TCF Financial 1995 Incentive Stock Program (the "Program") was adopted to enable TCF to attract and retain key personnel. Under the program, no more than 5% of the shares of TCF common stock outstanding on the date of initial shareholder approval may be awarded. Options generally become exercisable over a period of one to 10 years from the date of the grant and expire after 10 years. All outstanding options have a fixed exercise price equal to the market price of TCF common stock on the date of grant. Restricted stock granted in 1997 generally vests within five years, but may be subject to a delayed vesting schedule if certain return on equity goals are not met. Other restricted stock grants generally vest over periods from three to eight years. As disclosed in Note 1, TCF has elected to follow APB Opinion No. 25, "Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees," and related interpretations in accounting for its stock option and restricted stock grants. Accordingly, no compensation expense has been recognized for TCF's stock option grants. Compensation expense for restricted stock under APB Opinion No. 25 is recorded over the vesting periods, and totaled $8.3 million, $7.9 million and $6.3 million in 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively. Had compensation expense been determined based on the fair value at the grant dates for awards under the Program consistent with the method of SFAS No. 123, TCF's pro forma net income and earnings per common share would have been as follows:

Since the pro forma disclosures of results under SFAS No. 123 are only required to consider grants awarded in 1995, 1996 and 1997, the pro forma effects of applying SFAS No. 123 during this initial phase-in period may not be representative of the effects on reported results for future years. The fair value of each option grant is estimated on the grant date using the Black-Scholes option pricing model, with the following assumptions used for 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively: risk-free interest rates of 5.95, 6.5, and 6.25%; dividend yield of 1.7, 2.1, and 1.0%; expected lives of 10, 5, and 5 years; and volatility of 26.4, 19.6, and 21.1%.

The weighted-average grant-date fair value of options granted was $11.98, $3.32 and $2.93 in 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively. The weighted-average grant-date fair value of restricted stock was $22.23, $16.75 and $10.14 in 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively. Prior to being acquired by TCF, Winthrop had a separate stock option plan. TCF assumed the obligation to issue common stock upon the exercise of the outstanding employee and director options to purchase Winthrop common stock. Winthrop did not have compensatory stock option grants or 61

The TCF Cash Balance Pension Plan (the "Plan") is a defined benefit qualified plan covering all "regular stated salary" employees who are at least 21 years old and have completed a year of eligibility service with TCF. Certain part-time employees and employees of Winthrop and Standard are also eligible beginning in 1998. TCF makes a monthly allocation to the participant's account based on a percentage of the participant's compensation. The percentage is based on the sum of the participant's age and years of employment with TCF. Participants are fully vested after five years of vesting service. The projected unit credit method is the actuarial cost method used to compute the pension cost. 62

The weighted-average discount rate and rate of increase in future compensation used to measure the projected benefit obligation and the expected long-term rate of return on plan assets were as follows:

Great Lakes was a participant in the multi-employer Financial Institutions Retirement Fund ("FIRF"). Great Lakes withdrew from the FIRF effective December 31, 1995 and commenced participation in the Plan effective January 1, 1996. The FIRF does not segregate the assets, liabilities or costs by participating employer. As a result, disclosures required by SFAS No. 87, "Employers' Accounting for Pensions," cannot be made. Contributions for plan years beginning July 1, 1988 have not been required due to plan performance. As a result, Great Lakes did not record pension expense during 1995. POSTRETIREMENT PLANS In addition to providing retirement income benefits, TCF provides health care benefits for eligible retired employees, and in some cases life insurance benefits. Substantially all full-time employees may become eligible for health care benefits if they reach retirement age and have completed 10 years of service with the Company, with certain exceptions. These and similar benefits for active employees are provided through insurance companies or through self-funded programs. Employees of Winthrop and Standard will become eligible for TCF's postretirement benefit plan in 1998. 63

In connection with TCF's acquisition of Great Lakes, a $329,000 curtailment loss and $168,000 in special termination benefits were recognized in 1995 associated with benefits provided under Great Lakes' postretirement benefit plan. These costs are included in merger-related expenses in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The weighted-average discount rate used in determining the accumulated postretirement benefit obligation was 7.75%, 8.0% and 7.75% at December 31, 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively. For active participants, an 8.4% annual rate of increase in the per capita cost of covered health care benefits was assumed for 1998. This rate is assumed to decrease gradually to 6% for the year 2004 and remain at that level thereafter. For retired participants, other than certain Great Lakes' retirees, the annual rate of increase is assumed to be 4% for all future years, which represents the Plan's annual limit on increases in TCF's contributions for retirees. The health care cost trend rate assumption does not have a significant effect on the amounts reported. EMPLOYEE STOCK PURCHASE PLAN The TCF Employees Stock Purchase Plan generally allows participants to make contributions by salary deduction of up to 12% of their salary on a tax-deferred basis pursuant to section 401(k) of the IRC. TCF matches the contributions of all employees at the rate of 50 cents per dollar, with a maximum employer

contribution of 3% of the employee's salary. Employee contributions vest immediately while the Company's matching contributions are subject to a graduated vesting schedule based on an employee's years of vesting service. The Company's matching contributions are expensed when made. TCF's contribution to the plan was $2.2 million, $1.8 million and $1.4 million in 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively. PROFIT SHARING 401(k) PLAN Prior to being acquired by TCF, Winthrop established a 401(k) profit sharing plan (the "Winthrop Plan"). The Winthrop Plan was a salary reduction cash or deferred profit sharing plan intended to meet the requirements of Sections 401(k) and 401(a) of the IRC. All employees who had completed at least one year of service and had attained the age of 21 were eligible to participate in the Winthrop Plan. The Winthrop Plan allowed eligible employees to contribute a certain percentage of their base compensation into the Winthrop Plan each year. Winthrop could make discretionary contributions to the Winthrop Plan on behalf of eligible participants at the discretion of its Board of Directors. Employee contributions vested immediately while Winthrop's contributions were subject to a graduated vesting schedule. Winthrop's contributions were expensed when made. Winthrop's contribution to the Winthrop Plan was $270,000, $184,000 and $120,000 in 1997, 1996 and 1995, respectively. The Winthrop Plan was terminated (subject to Internal Revenue Service approval) on January 1, 1998 and all of Winthrop's contributions vested on such date. Winthrop's employees became eligible for the TCF Employees Stock Purchase Plan on January 1, 1998. 64

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements - (Continued) (22) FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION SPECIAL ASSESSMENT Federal legislation enacted on September 30, 1996 addressed inadequate funding of the Savings Association Insurance Fund ("SAIF"), which had resulted in a large deposit insurance premium disparity between banks insured by the Bank Insurance Fund ("BIF") and SAIF-insured thrifts. As a result of this new legislation, a onetime special assessment was imposed on thrift institutions, and TCF recognized a $34.8 million pretax charge for assessments imposed on its bank subsidiaries. The legislation also provided for a reduction in deposit insurance premiums in subsequent periods and other regulatory reforms. (23) LITIGATION AND CONTINGENT LIABILITIES From time to time, TCF is a party to legal proceedings arising out of its general lending and operating activities. TCF is and expects to become engaged in a number of foreclosure proceedings and other collection actions as part of its loan collection activities. From time to time, borrowers have also brought actions against TCF, in some cases claiming substantial amounts of damages. TCF is also from time to time involved in litigation relating to its retail banking, consumer credit and mortgage banking operations and related consumer financial services, including class action litigation. Management, after review with its legal counsel, believes that the ultimate disposition of its litigation will not have a material effect on TCF's financial condition. 68

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT [LOGO] To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of TCF Financial Corporation: We have audited the accompanying consolidated statements of financial condition of TCF Financial Corporation and Subsidiaries as of December 31, 1997 and 1996, and the related consolidated statements of operations, cash flows and stockholders' equity for each of the years in the three-year period ended December 31, 1997. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of TCF Financial Corporation and Subsidiaries at December 31, 1997 and 1996, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the years in the three-year period ended December 31, 1997, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.
