How do I close my Stash+ subscription?

We’ll be sorry to see you go! You can close your subscription at any time online at See below to get started—note that currently, you can only make your close request online at this time. 

To start, please complete the following steps:

  1. Make sure your external bank is linked.
  2. Turn off Auto-Stash for your IRA account.
  3. Sell all of the investments in your IRA account 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).

Note: If you’re closing out a Retirement account early, you may receive fines or penalties by the IRS. This is not tax advice. Contact a tax professional for further information.

If you have a custodial account, you’ll also need to close it before you close your subscription. Please contact Customer Support to close your custodial account. You can call us at 1 (800) 205-5164 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday. 


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 account1 after your subscription is closed. You can transfer your money to an external account, or you can use your Stock-Back®  Card2 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 deposit3, 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.
