Link Your Bank Account
We recommend linking a checking account rather than a savings account to avoid potential transfer reversals.
If you do business with a major bank like Bank of America or Wells Fargo, it’s easy to link your bank account* in the app.

If you receive the error message “Error: Please disable the added/extra security placed on the account,” you’ll need to either disable the two-factor verification setting on your bank account, or contact your bank to make sure there isn’t a problem with your online banking profile.
*You can fund your account with an individual or joint bank account. We can’t allow funding from trust or business accounts at this time. Please make sure you link the correct account type to avoid restrictions on your Robinhood account. For security purposes, we limit the number of bank accounts we can link to a single Robinhood account. We also limit the number of Robinhood accounts that a bank account can be linked to.
If you don’t see your bank or credit union listed, you’ll need to verify your account manually.

Once you’ve submitted your information, we’ll initiate two microdeposits to your bank account. Please allow up to 48 hours for the transfers to appear in your bank account.
Once the two small transfers have landed in your bank account, verify them in your mobile app:
These two small transfers are for the sole purpose of verifying your bank account and will be withdrawn when they expire.
We encourage you to take extra care to enter this information accurately, and to include any leading or trailing zeroes in both account and routing numbers.
Please also make sure to select Savings or Checking (located at the top of the Link Account screen).
Linking your bank account manually can be a tricky process, and you may encounter one of these errors:
Please don’t initiate multiple microdeposit verifications within a short period of time. This could make it difficult to determine which deposits to verify.
