How long does it take to transfer money to my external bank account?
So you’ve scheduled a transfer from Stash to your external bank account—what’s next?
Generally speaking, it can take up to 5 business days to show up in your external account. Keep in mind that business days are from Monday to Friday, excluding US bank holidays. If you’ve initiated a transfer on a weekend or bank holiday, the process may take slightly longer.
To get more technical, the length of time depends on how fast your external bank can process ACH transfers. You’ll have to get in touch with your financial institution for particulars.
How do I know if the money is on its way?
This one’s simple. You can check the status of your transfers in the app or on the web through your Invest or Stash Banking¹ transaction feed. If the status is marked as complete, that means that Stash has already processed the transfer. If it’s marked as pending, you should double-check that your external bank account has been correctly linked. You can do this by navigating to your Account tab and accessing your external bank account.
