Robinhood enables users to track their transfer requests through the app's history section.
Upon initiating a transfer request, it typically takes 5-7 business days for the assets to settle in the Robinhood account. During the transfer period, users will be unable to access the positions being transferred from the external brokerage.
Account transfer requests can face rejection due to various reasons, including incorrect account numbers, the presence of ineligible assets, unmet margin balance requirements, or a lack of approved options trading status.
In such instances, users may need to resubmit their transfer requests to initiate the process again.
