EXPLANATORY NOTE
TCF Financial Corporation (“TCF” or the “Registrant”) has prepared this registration statement in accordance with the requirements of Form S-8 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) to register shares of its Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share, issuable pursuant to the TCF Financial 2015 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). As of April 22, 2015, the date TCF’s stockholders approved the Plan, no further grants may be made under the TCF Financial Incentive Stock Program, as amended and restated (the “Program”). Any shares that were available for issuance under the Program and that were not subject to outstanding awards under the Program became available for issuance under the Plan. Accordingly, a total of 2,561,692 shares became available for delivery under the Plan, including (i) 2,000,000 newly authorized shares and (ii) 561,692 shares previously registered on Form S-8 pursuant to Registration Statement No. 333-184675 that were available for issuance under the Program. In addition, in accordance with the Plan, shares that are subject to outstanding awards under the Program that subsequently are forfeited, cancelled, exchanged, surrendered or terminated without a distribution of shares under the terms of the Program shall then become available for issuance under the Plan. With respect to each such agreement, instrument or other document filed as an exhibit to the registration statement, we refer you to the exhibit for a more complete description of the matter involved, and each such statement shall be deemed qualified in its entirety by this reference.

Item 6. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.
As permitted by Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”), TCF’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Incorporation”) and Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”) collectively provide that (i) TCF is required to indemnify its directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL; provided, however, that TCF is required to provide indemnification with respect to a proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by one of such persons only if the proceeding (or part thereof) is authorized by TCF’s board of directors, (ii) TCF may, in its discretion, indemnify other persons as set forth in the DGCL, (iii) to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, TCF is required to advance all expenses reasonably incurred by its directors and officers in connection with a legal proceeding (subject to certain exceptions), (iv) the rights conferred in the Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws are not exclusive, (v) TCF is authorized to enter into indemnification agreements with its directors, officers, employees and agents and (vi) TCF may not retroactively amend the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaw provisions relating to indemnity.
As permitted by Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL, the Certificate of Incorporation provides that a director of TCF shall not be personally liable to TCF or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except: (i) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to TCF or its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) under Section 174 of the DGCL, or (iv) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit. TCF may not retroactively amend the Certificate of Incorporation provisions relating to limitation of directors’ personal liability. If the DGCL is amended to permit the further elimination or limitation of the personal liability of directors, then pursuant to the Certificate of Incorporation the liability of a director of TCF shall be eliminated or limited to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, as amended.
TCF has purchased director and officer liability insurance that insures directors and officers against certain liabilities in connection with the performance of their duties as directors and officers, including liabilities under the Securities Act, and provides for payment to TCF of costs incurred by it in indemnifying its directors and officers.

Item 9. Undertakings.
(a)
The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:
(1)
To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:
(i)
To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;
(ii)
To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and





price represent no more than a 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and
(iii)
To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;
Provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) above do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the SEC by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement.
(2)
That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
(3)
To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.
(b)
The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the Registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
(c)
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

RE:
TCF Financial 2015 Omnibus Incentive Plan

Ladies and Gentlemen:
I am the Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of TCF Financial Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”). I have acted as counsel to the Company in connection with the preparation and filing of a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (the "Registration Statement") for the registration of 2,561,692 shares of common stock, par value $.01 per share (the “Shares”) of the Company issuable under the TCF Financial 2015 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Plan”).
In connection with the foregoing, I, or the attorneys under my supervision, have examined the corporate records of the Company, including its Certificate of Incorporation, as amended and restated; Bylaws, as amended and restated; the Plan; minutes of all meetings of its directors and stockholders; and such other documents which I have considered relevant and necessary as the basis for my opinion hereinafter set forth. In rendering the opinion set forth below, I have assumed the genuineness of all signatures, the legal capacity of natural persons, the authenticity of all documents submitted to me as originals and the conformity to original documents of all documents submitted to me as duplicates or certified or conformed copies.
Based on the foregoing and subject to the qualifications, assumptions and limitations stated herein, I am of the opinion that the Shares have been duly authorized and, upon issuance in accordance with the terms of the Plan, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.
My opinion set forth above is limited to the Delaware General Corporation Law, as in effect on the date hereof.
I hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as Exhibit 5 to the Registration Statement and to the reference to me under the heading “Interests of Named Experts and Counsel” in the Registration Statement. In giving this consent, I do not thereby admit that I come within the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission thereunder.
 
Very truly yours,
/s/ Joseph T. Green
