Instant Deposits

You may receive up to $1,000 in Instant Deposits after you initiate a deposit. Although you may get access to these funds, the transfer from your bank to your Robinhood account may take up to five business days. Please make sure you have the necessary funds in your bank account for at least five business days after you initiate the ACH transfer to prevent a transfer reversal. A transfer reversal happens when a scheduled bank transfer is canceled for insufficient funds or a variety of other reasons. Check out our guide to preventing transfer reversals to learn more.

*Only available if your Instant Deposits status is in good standing.

Transfer timelines

Deposits can take up to five business days to complete, but could be shorter depending on your transfer history with Robinhood.

Canceling a transfer

Once a transfer to or from your Robinhood account has been initiated, you have until the time a transfer is processed to cancel. Once a transfer has been processed, it can no longer be cancelled. Please visit our Help Center to learn more about how and when to cancel a transfer.

Set up direct deposit

You can have your paycheck or government deposits like tax refunds deposited directly into your brokerage account. Find step-by-step instructions on how to set up direct deposit.
