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 reflect on your account. This window is provided to accommodate processing times for bank transfers, as well as the time it takes for Acorns to purchase shares on your behalf. Please Note: the market is open between 9:30am to 4pm ET on weekdays.

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


Processing time for withdrawals from your Acorns account are subject to bank processing timelines and policies. You can track the status of the transfer within the Recent Activity section of the account.
