Withdrawals

Withdrawals from M1 Invest Accounts are subject to the following:

Settlement period: Before any funds can be disbursed to our users, all sales must settle. Settlement occurs on T+2 (Trade Date plus two trading days). Funds take two trading days after their sale to be available for disbursement.
Example: A withdrawal is requested on Thursday. Securities are sold on Friday and will generally settle on the following Tuesday.

Holding period: All new deposits to M1 Invest require a 6 business day holding period before they can be withdrawn to any external bank or M1 Checking. After 6 business days, the transfer to your bank begins.
Example: You deposit $500 into your account on Monday, the 1st of the month. A withdrawal of $100 after this will be held until Tuesday, the 9th, before the transfer to your bank begins.

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations: All funds received from a banking institution can only be returned to that same bank for 60 days. For their first 60 days, funds received cannot be disbursed to a different bank than from where they originated.
