How do I set up automatic dividend reinvestment?
We’ve got some good news—for retirement and custodial accounts, you will automatically reinvest your dividends on Stash. If you’d like to start reinvesting your dividends from your personal account, here’s how to do it from the app:
- From the Home screen, tap Invest.
- Select the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen.
- Scroll down until you see Select dividend reinvestment program.
- From here, you can enable or disable automatic dividend reinvestment for your personal portfolio.
Please note that 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, so we’ll go over the most common ones below:
- 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. Your first dividend received from your investment will be automatically added to your Portfolio Cash. All subsequent dividends will be automatically reinvested.
