All buy orders (i.e. deposit requests) placed before 5pm PST should be invested the next business day. It takes 2-3 business days for these investments to fully process and appear in your account. This time allows for bank transfers to take place and for Acorns to buy shares on your behalf.  

 Note: the market is open between 9:30am to 4pm ET on weekdays.

Random Deposit Verification (RDV) may be required to process some investments. Deposits in excess of $10,000 may require additional confirmation.


Withdrawals from your Acorns account depend on the bank's processing timelines and policies. You can track the status of a transfer in the Recent Activity section of the account.
