A stock transfer is Robinhood’s version of “ACATS” (Automated Customer Account Transfer Service). This means that we support the transfer of stocks from your previous brokerage account to your Robinhood account, and vice versa.
Before You Begin
- We support partial outbound transfers.
- Once you transfer assets out of Robinhood, we’ll close your account.
Outbound ACATS Transfers
You can transfer your stocks out of your Robinhood account into another brokerage. To begin the process, you'll need to contact your other brokerage and have them initiate the transfer. They’ll submit the transfer instructions to our clearing partner to transfer over your assets and funds.
Note: If you do a partial ACATS transfer to another brokerage, we’ll temporarily restrict your Robinhood account while the transfer processes. If you do a full ACATS transfer, your account will be closed.
Where to Find Your Account Number
You can usually find your account number on your old brokerage account statement. If you have trouble finding your number, please contact your old brokerage for assistance.
You can find your Robinhood account number in your mobile app:
- Tap the Account icon in the upper left corner.
- Tap Account.
- Your account number will be at the top of your screen.
Fees for Transferring Stock
If you’re transferring stock from Robinhood to an outside brokerage, there is a $75 fee.
Stocks Restricted During Transfer
While your stocks are being transferred out of Robinhood, we’ll prevent you from trading them until the transfer is complete. You still own the stocks during this process, and they’ll update to reflect the current market value.
We recommend reaching out to your other brokerage if you plan on transferring your Robinhood account while borrowing funds. Some brokerages may accept leveraged accounts.
Robinhood’s DTC Number
Our DTC number is 6769.
Apex Clearing’s DTC Number
Apex’s DTC number is 0158.
Note: This is the DTC number of our clearing partner, Apex. You can see which entity your account is cleared through–Robinhood or Apex–by checking your most recent account statement.
We don’t support non-ACATS transfers. Please don’t request stock delivery using any method other than ACATS, including DTC and transfer agent transfers.
