How do I close my Stash Growth subscription?

We’ll be sorry to see you go! You can close your subscription at any time in the app or online at See below to get started. 


To start, please complete the following steps:

  1. Make sure your external bank is linked.
  2. Turn off Auto-invest for your IRA.
  3. Sell all of the investments in your IRA and wait for them to settle (up to 3 business days).
  4. Wait for any recent deposits to be available to withdraw (up to 6 business days).



  • If you’re closing out a Retirement account early, you may receive fines or penalties by the IRS. Check out this article for more information about closing your Retirement account. 
  • You may be able to avoid some fines or penalties by transferring your Retire Portfolio to another broker, also known as an ACAT (Automated Customer Account Transfer). Learn more here


This is not tax advice. Contact a tax professional for further information.


Please keep the following things in mind:

  • If you close your Personal Invest account, all of your investments will be sold. Proceeds will be returned to you through your external linked account.
  • The complete process can take up to 10 business days. You will receive a confirmation email when all the steps are complete.
  • You will still have access to the money in your Stash banking account after you have completed all the steps and received your confirmation email. You can transfer your money to an external account, or you can use your Stock-Back® Card1 to make purchases; however, you will not be able to add more funds to your Stash banking account. Your subscription will automatically close when the balance is $0.
  • If you use Stash direct deposit, please inform your employer about changing direct deposit information.
  • If you get a tax document, we will notify you via email, even after your subscription is closed. This email will include a link to access your tax documents on our website.
  • You might be invited to complete a survey regarding your Stash experience. Filling it out will help us gain valuable feedback we can use to improve.
