How do withdrawals work from the Wealthfront cash account?

We don’t charge any fees for withdrawals and there are no restrictions on the number of times you can withdraw. Withdrawals typically take 1-3 business days to arrive at your bank.

Please note that if you request a withdrawal to a bank account that is different from the account that originally deposited the funds into Wealthfront, for your security we may ask you for additional information before returning your funds. 

Additionally, requesting a withdrawal after making a recent deposit can result in a significant delay in returning your funds due to our anti-money laundering (AML) policy.
