How do I set up automatic dividend reinvestment?

We’ve got some good news—for Retirement and Custodial accounts, we’ll automatically reinvest your dividends. This is also known as DRIP.

We’re unable to disable automatic dividend reinvestment for Retirement and Custodial accounts at this time. Dividends may take up to 3-4 business days to be reinvested.

Why wasn’t my dividend reinvested?

There’s a number of reasons dividends may not be reinvested: 

  • The equity is ineligible for dividend reinvestment.
  • The dividend was voided or reversed.
  • The market is closed, in which case your dividend will be reinvested on the next trading day.
  • You enrolled in our dividend reinvestment program after your investment’s record date.
