Are there any limits or fees if I transfer funds out of my cash account?

We don’t charge any fees for withdrawals and there are no limits on the number of times you can withdraw.

There is a daily ACH transfer limit of $250,000, so any ACH transfers greater than that amount will be split over multiple days. You must withdraw funds to a bank account in your name, as we currently do not support third-party transfers (i.e. to a title company).

Learn more about withdrawal timing.

Note: For security purposes, there is a 5 business day hold on all new deposits before your funds can be transferred out of your account.

The Wealthfront Cash Account Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is as of November 1, 2019. The APY may change at any time, before or after the Cash Account is opened. The APY for the Wealthfront Cash Account represents the weighted average of the APY on the aggregate deposit balances of all clients at the program banks. Deposit balances are not allocated equally among the participating program banks.

Cash Account is offered by Wealthfront Brokerage LLC (“Wealthfront Brokerage”) a member of FINRA/SIPC. Neither Wealthfront Brokerage nor any of its affiliates are a bank, and Cash Account is not a checking or savings account. Wealthfront Brokerage conveys Cash Account funds to depository institutions that accept and maintain such deposits. The cash balance in the Cash Account is swept to one or more banks (the “Program Banks”) where it earns a variable rate of interest and is eligible for FDIC insurance. FDIC insurance is not provided until the funds arrive at the Program Banks. While funds are at Wealthfront Brokerage, and before they are swept to the Program Banks, they are subject to SIPC’s protection limit of $250,000 for cash. FDIC insurance coverage is limited to $250,000 per qualified customer account per banking institution.

Wealthfront Brokerage uses more than one Program Bank to ensure FDIC coverage of up to $1 million for your cash deposits. For more information on FDIC insurance coverage, please visit www.FDIC.gov. Customers are responsible for monitoring their total assets at each of the Program Banks to determine the extent of available FDIC insurance coverage in accordance with FDIC rules. The deposits at Program Banks are not covered by SIPC. This is not an offer, or solicitation of any offer to buy or sell any security, investment or other product.
