Robinhood is a Safety-First company. We want you to feel confident and secure on Robinhood, so these are the commitments you can always expect from us.
We pioneered, and will continue to offer, commission-free trading to enable access for everyone.
We believe everyone should have equal access to financial tools. Regardless of how much money you intend to invest, you won’t be charged account minimums or commissions to buy or sell stocks, ETFs, or options with Robinhood.
Your securities and cash are protected by SIPC.
Robinhood Financial and Robinhood Securities are members of SIPC, which protects securities for customers of its members up to $500,000 (including $250,000 for claims for cash). Explanatory brochure available upon request or at www.sipc.org.
We've purchased an additional insurance policy for Robinhood Markets, Inc., Robinhood Financial LLC, and Robinhood Securities, LLC to supplement SIPC protection. The additional insurance becomes available to customers in the event that SIPC limits are exhausted. This additional insurance policy provides protection for securities and cash up to an aggregate of $1 billion, and is limited to a combined return to any customer of $50 million in securities, including $1.9 million in cash. Similar to SIPC protection, this additional insurance does not protect against a loss in the market value of securities.
Note: SIPC coverage doesn’t protect against a loss in the market value of securities. Crypto positions through Robinhood Crypto aren’t protected by SIPC and Robinhood Crypto isn’t a member of FINRA or SIPC.
Brokerage customers who opt in to the Brokerage cash sweep program have their eligible uninvested cash automatically (unrestricted cash intended for investing that hasn't yet been invested or spent) deposited at these banks where it becomes eligible for FDIC insurance up to a total maximum of $2 million. That’s up to $250,000 per program bank, inclusive of deposits already held at the bank in the same ownership capacity, subject to FDIC insurance coverage limits and any capacity limitations at the banks. While the FDIC insurance coverage limit at each bank is $250,000, $2,000 is reserved for accrued interest. If you opt out of one more program banks, your FDIC insurance coverage may be reduced.
