T+1 settlements | Robinhood

T+1 settlements

For an open trade in your Robinhood investing account, the current settlement for US stocks is 2 business days after the trade date (T+2). Starting May 28, 2024, the new standard settlement for these securities will be the next business day after a trade (T+1).

Keep in mind

Business days are Monday through Friday except for US Stock market holidays and half-days.

What’s the new settlement rule?

This is an industry-wide change for US stock trades because of the recent rule amendments from the US regulators, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and FINRA. This upcoming rule change will soon make the settlement cycle 1 day shorter. This means the difference between the date you trade a security and the date the transaction settles will be shorter. Starting May 28, it’ll change from T+2 to T+1 (within 1 business day after a trade).

Example

If you place a trade on a Tuesday, the transaction will settle on Wednesday.

What does this mean for you?

You will be able to use trade proceeds for cash withdrawals 1 business day earlier (T+1). When using a non-margin account, the sell proceeds will be available 1 business day earlier to buy securities. Keep in mind that the standard settlement date change won’t impact your account balance.

What do you need to do?

This rule change requires no action on your part. The new T+1 settlement period will automatically be applied for any new US stock trades executed in your Robinhood investing account on or after May 28, 2024.
