When Can I Withdraw Brokerage Cash from Robinhood?


Recommended Posts

We understand that managing your investments and finances can be a complex process, and one crucial aspect of this knows when and how you can withdraw brokerage cash from Robinhood. In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the intricacies of withdrawing cash from Robinhood, ensuring that you have a clear understanding of the process and can access your funds with ease.


Understanding Robinhood Cash

Before delving into the specifics of when you can withdraw cash from your Robinhood account, it's important to grasp the concept of Robinhood Cash. Robinhood Cash is essentially the uninvested cash that sits in your brokerage account. This can include any deposited funds that you haven't used for trading or that have resulted from selling stocks or receiving dividends.


Immediate Access to Robinhood Cash

One of the perks of using Robinhood is that you have immediate access to your uninvested cash. Unlike some traditional brokerage accounts where it may take several days to access your funds, Robinhood allows you to use this cash right away for trading or withdrawals.


T+2 Settlement Periods

It's important to note that when you sell stocks or other securities on Robinhood, there is a standard T+2 settlement period. This means that after executing a sell order, it will take approximately two trading days for the proceeds from the sale to settle in your account as cash. Once the settlement is complete, you can then withdraw that cash.


Cash Withdrawal Process

With Robinhood, withdrawing cash from your account is a straightforward process. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you navigate it:


Step 1: Open the Robinhood App

Launch the Robinhood app on your mobile device or access the platform through their website.


Step 2: Navigate to Account

Click on the "Account" tab to access your account overview.


Step 3: Select Cash

Under your account overview, you will see your available cash balance. Click on the "Cash" option.


Step 4: Withdraw Funds

Choose the "Withdraw Funds" option to initiate the withdrawal process.


Step 5: Bank Account Selection

Select the bank account to which you want to transfer the funds. Ensure that this is a bank account linked to your Robinhood account.


Step 6: Enter Amount

Enter the amount you wish to withdraw. Make sure the amount is within the available cash balance.


Step 7: Confirm Withdrawal

Review your withdrawal details, including the amount and destination bank account. Once confirmed, submit the withdrawal request.


Step 8: Verification

Robinhood may require additional verification to ensure the security of your withdrawal. This can include two-factor authentication or other security measures.


Step 9: Confirmation

Upon successful verification, Robinhood will confirm your withdrawal request. You will receive a notification when the funds have been sent to your bank account.


Withdrawal Limitations

While Robinhood provides relatively quick access to your cash, it's essential to be aware of any limitations or restrictions that may apply to withdrawals:

·        Pattern Day Trading: If your account is flagged as a pattern day trader, you may be subject to specific regulations that restrict the frequency of withdrawals.

·        Account Verification: Robinhood may require you to verify your identity or meet certain account criteria before enabling large withdrawals.

·        Bank Processing Time: Keep in mind that the time it takes for the funds to appear in your bank account can vary depending on your bank's processing times.



In conclusion, withdrawing brokerage cash from Robinhood is a straightforward process, with the flexibility of immediate access to your uninvested cash. Understanding the settlement period and following the simple steps for withdrawal can help you manage your finances effectively.
