Make a contribution

After you’ve set up your Retirement account with us, do the following to make a new or recurring contribution or an indirect rollover:

  1. Go to Retirement

  2. Select Contribute

  3. Enter the amount you’d like to contribute. You can see the amount you can contribute on Robinhood until you reach your max for the year

  4. Select Continue

  5. Confirm the details of your contribution, including:

    a. Frequency - Adjust the contribution to be recurring

    b. Funding method – All new IRA contributions, IRA transfers, and 401(k) rollovers can earn the IRA match*

    c. Type of contribution – Either New IRA contribution or Indirect rollover

    d. Tax year - only make contributions for the current tax year in the Robinhood App

  6. Select Submit

You can view your previous contributions anytime in RetirementContributionsHistory.

Keep in mind

All IRA contributions count toward your annual limit. If you made contributions to another external IRA, you’ll want to factor in those amounts when contributing to your Robinhood IRA.

Recurring contributions

You can set up recurring contributions to your Robinhood IRA. Simply select a Frequency that’s recurring in the steps to Make a contribution, including:

  • Weekly for a contribution to initiate every Monday
  • Twice a month for a contribution to initiate on the 1st and 15th of every month
  • Monthly for a contribution to initiate on the 1st of every month
  • Quarterly for a contribution to initiate on the 1st of January, April, July, and October

Taxes for contributions

Contributions will be reported on IRS Form 5498, which is issued annually in May.

If you’ve mistakenly allocated a new IRA contribution to the incorrect tax year, you can contact us to request an adjustment.

Keep in mind

Indirect rollovers must happen within 60 days, can only be done once per year, and can’t be adjusted.

Disclosures

Funds being contributed into or distributed from retirement accounts may entail tax consequences. Contributions are limited and withdrawals before age 59 1/2 may be subject to a penalty tax.
