What if I receive money (including a direct deposit) into my closed account after opening the new Stash banking account?

If you opened your new Stride Banking Account and are worried about where your funds are going , we’ve got you covered! If funds are posted on your old account between now and January 9, 2023, Stash will automatically transfer them to your new account.
