You can transfer up to $50,000 per business day into your account.

You will receive up to $1,000 in instant deposits. Settlement time for any deposit larger than $1000 will be around 4 to 5 business days.

Transfer Reversals

An ACH reversal is a cancelled transfer of funds. ACH reversals may occur under the following conditions: insufficient funds, wrong type of account (non-ACH transactional), duplicate transaction, or a declined transfer. To check how much cash is available for withdrawal, go to your Account Summary.

When reversed, funds will be placed back in the originating account and your Robinhood account will be charged a $30 fee. Reversal fees are charged by Robinhood’s clearing partner APEX, therefore Robinhood is not authorized to waive fees after they have been charged to your account.

An email will be delivered immediately to notify you of the reversal. Inquiries related to ACH reversal should first be directed to your bank.

To prevent any future reversals, we recommend doing the following before initiating transfers to Robinhood:

  • Verifying that you have sufficient available funds for 1-2 business days following your transfer request in the app, as the request might be delayed reaching your bank
  • Confirming that your bank account is enabled for standard outgoing ACH transfers, and that you’ve entered in the correct information when linking the account
  • Limiting transfers from savings accounts, as they might not be ACH transactional or limited to 6 transactions per month (including any small amounts transferred when linking a bank account manually)

Broker to Broker Transfers (ACAT)

Broker to broker transfers are processed via ACATS (Automated Customer Account Transfer Service). We don't currently support ACATS into Robinhood, but we’re working to add this feature in the future.

We do support outgoing ACATS, from Robinhood to another brokerage. This process should be initiated from the receiving brokerage and we will follow through to complete the process.

Please see our Commission and Fee Schedule for fees associated with ACATS out of Robinhood.
