* The minimum amount for ACH transfer is $100, incoming or outgoing.
* ACH Relationships cannot be established for UTMA/UGMA accounts.
* We hold all initial ACH transfers for an additional 3 business days.
* In the event that an ACH is reversed by NACHA, a $25 fee will be charged and the account will be asked to send funds via an alternate method (wire, cashier's check, or certified funds). Funds from ACH deposits cannot be withdrawn for a period of 5 business days due to our clearing firm's policy.

Automated Customer Account Transfer (ACAT)

Typically used to transfer an entire account (including cash and securities) from another broker to your new account. Please sign and complete the ACAT form and return it to us with your new account paperwork. Make sure to include a copy of your most recent monthly statement from the transferring broker. You may also fax us a copy of the form so we can initiate your transfer, but we must still receive the original copy. (ACAT transfers take approximately 7 business days).
