Can I withdraw money from my Stash account whenever I want?

For the most part, yes. If there is money that shows as Withdrawable Cash in your Cash Balance, you can transfer this at any time.

Why isn’t all my money Withdrawable Cash all the time?

  1. You haven’t sold your shares yet

On Stash, you are purchasing investments. That means you have to sell those investments before getting your money back. Learn more about selling shares.

We don’t charge additional fees for selling investments or withdrawing the money from sales.

  1. Your money from a sale is being held

If you sell shares, the SEC requires us to hold the money for 2 business days.

Once your money has been released from the hold, it should show in your Withdrawable Cash.

  1. You deposited money to your Stash account recently

There is a hold on cash deposits to your Stash account. Though the amount of time can vary, it can take up to five business days depending on your portfolio balance. This is done to protect all user from fraud.

Once your money has been released from the hold, it should show in your Withdrawable Cash.
