Don’t save your questions. We’ve got answers.
Money is complicated enough, so we work hard to make everything about our Cash Account easier to understand. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions:
How hard is it to move money between Wealthfront accounts?
So not hard at all! When the market is open, money can usually be transferred to your taxable Investment Account in minutes.Learn more
But what if I want to withdraw my money?
It’s your money, so you can withdraw it whenever you want. It usually takes only one business day to arrive in your bank account, though if it’s a recent deposit, it may take a few extra days to process.
How many fees are there?
None! Zilch! Nada! We never charge any fees for the Cash Account.
Unfortunately, I have these things called bills. Can you make them go away?
We can’t make them go all the way away, but it’s very easy to set up bill pay with the Cash Account. Paying bills is kind of like making them go away, right?
What if I want actual dollar bills in my actual hand?
We’ve got ATMs IRL. Just use our Debit Card to withdraw from more than 19,000 free ATMs at places like CVS, Target, Walgreens, and many many more.

The cash balance in the Cash Account is swept to one or more banks (the “program banks”) where it earns a variable rate of interest and is eligible for FDIC insurance. FDIC insurance is not provided until the funds arrive at the program banks. FDIC insurance coverage is limited to $250,000 per qualified customer account per banking institution. Wealthfront uses more than one program bank to ensure FDIC coverage of up to $1 million for your cash deposits. For more information on FDIC insurance coverage, please visit www.FDIC.gov. Customers are responsible for monitoring their total assets at each of the program banks to determine the extent of available FDIC insurance coverage in accordance with FDIC rules. The deposits at program banks are not covered by SIPC.

The Annual Percentage Yield (APY) for the Cash Account may change at any time, before or after the Cash Account is opened. The APY for the Wealthfront Cash Account represents the weighted average of the APY on the aggregate deposit balances of all clients at the program banks. Deposit balances are not allocated equally among the participating program banks.
