When can I expect my money to be invested?

ACH Deposits

ACH deposits are typically received 1-2 business days after you submit the request and are usually available for investment the day they arrive. We can't request the deposit from your bank until the bank account has been verified, which takes additional time if you manually entered your routing and account number.

Example: If you submit your deposit request on a Monday, your funds should arrive by Tuesday or Wednesday and will typically be invested on the day they arrive.

Wire Deposits

Wire deposits are typically received on the same day that your bank initiates the wire and are available for investment the following day.

Example: If you were to wire funds to us on Monday, your funds will be available for investment on Tuesday.

Check Deposits

Deposits by check (401(k) Rollovers and IRA rollovers) are held for two (2) business days to allow funds to clear your bank before being released for investment the following day.

Example: If your check is deposited on a Monday, your funds would be available for investment on Wednesday.
