HOW TO FUND YOUR ACCOUNT
TRANSFERS SHOULD BE STRESS-FREE, SO PAY LESS IN FEES.
Transfer your IRA or individual account in just 4 steps via ACATS. We don’t charge incoming transfer fees. But if your other broker does, we’ll reimburse you up to $75 back when you move accounts from another firm (limitations may apply).
2. Choose full or partial transfer
Transfer all your assets in full, or choose what you want to transfer.
3. Authorize the transfer
Upload a statement of an account you are transferring and sign the authorization form.
4. We deposit your assets
We'll process the transfer. ACATS transfer will take 7-10 business days.
For each minimum transfer of $2,000, we will reimburse the transfer fees from your other broker, up to $75. We’ll do our best to reimburse the fees within 5-7 business days from completion of the transfer. If you don’t see the transfer credit after the 7th business day, please contact our support team at email@example.com.
We don’t charge an incoming ACATS fee. But the transferring firm may charge an outgoing ACATS fee.
This is common. Dividend or interest payments may occur in your other brokerage account after the transfer was completed. If you requested a full transfer, any remaining cash balance from the other brokerage account will be transferred over automatically in scheduled residual sweeps.
