Withdraw money from Robinhood
There’s no fee for bank transfers. However, instant withdrawals to a debit card or bank account can incur a 1.5% fee.
To transfer money from your Robinhood account to your external debit card or bank account:
For standard bank account transfers (originated ACH):
For debit card transfers and instant bank withdrawals:
Withdrawable cash is what’s available to withdraw from your account. However, the following exclusions may apply depending on your account type and activity, where:
|Exclusions that apply||Brokerage||Retirement||Spending|

|Pending debit card transactions||N/A||N/A||Yes|
Following a sale in your brokerage or retirement account for equities or options, the transaction usually needs to settle before you can withdraw the proceeds to your bank account.
The settlement period for equities is the trade date plus 2 trading days (T+2), sometimes referred to as regular-way settlement. On the 3rd day, those proceeds will be available as withdrawable cash.
For options trades, the settlement period is the trade date plus 1 trading day (T+1).
Deposits and withdrawal times may vary, check out Deposit money into your Robinhood account for details and timelines.
For pending deposits, you must wait until the deposit completes before you can withdraw it from your account.
For pending orders, you won’t see money held for orders in your withdrawable cash. Before you can withdraw cash, you’ll need to cancel the pending orders.
The cash value from a referral stock needs to remain in your brokerage or retirement account for at least 30 calendar days. If you sell your free stock before the 30 days, you won’t be able to access those funds in your withdrawable cash. After the 30-day window, there are no restrictions on the proceeds. Check your History for the stock’s value. For details, review Robinhood Referrals Program.
If you receive a fractional share of stock worth $10 in your Robinhood account, you can’t withdraw the $10 you receive by selling the stock for 30 days. The cash value of the stock is determined by the price of the stock at the time you received it.
If you’re using margin investing, you’ll need to maintain a Robinhood account value of at least $2,000 to meet the minimum balance requirements to borrow from within that account. To withdraw below $2,000, you’ll need to disable Margin investing in Settings → Investing.
Depending on the options strategy you use, we may hold stocks or cash as collateral to make sure you can cover the position in case of assignment. For details, review Options collateral.
For spending accounts, you may have funds held for pending debit card transactions through the Robinhood Cash Card. When you use your Cash Card, an authorization is placed to hold funds until the transaction settles or the authorization expires.
If you’re enrolled in Round-ups, you have the cents rounded up from your recent transactions, which are held before the order is placed on a weekly basis. You may need to unenroll in Round-ups before you can withdraw the funds.
In addition to cash balance limitations, a withdrawal to your bank account can fail for a few other reasons. The most common include account restriction, transfer limits, or withdrawing to a different source.
Limits apply for different accounts, which are described after the steps at the beginning of this article. To check your withdrawal limit, go to Transfers → Transfer limits.
For 60 days following a deposit, you may be required to verify additional information if you want to withdraw money to a different source (debit card, bank account, instant transfer) than the one you originally deposited them from.
If the original bank account is closed or you’re unable to access it, contact us for help initiating a withdrawal to another bank account for you. You may be required to share:
