How are Cash Management and the Robinhood spending account different?

Note

Cash Management is no longer accepting new customers at this time.

With the launch of the Robinhood spending account, we are no longer accepting new signups to Cash Management. Over time, we expect to transition all Cash Management accounts to the Robinhood spending account.

Here is a side by side comparison of Cash Management and the Robinhood spending account.

Note

If you’re currently enrolled in the brokerage cash sweep program, where you earn interest on your uninvested brokerage cash balance, you won’t lose this feature once you transition to the Robinhood spending account. You can continue to track your interest earnings in AccountInvesting.
