How long does it take to transfer funds using the Personal Savings website?
On the day you initiate your transaction on the Personal Savings website, the amount will be reflected in your Current Balance and will begin/stop earning interest immediately. Funds transferred into your Personal Savings account will be available for withdrawal on the 5th business day‡ after the deposit is initiated. External banks are required to reflect funds transferred to them within 2 business days, but most will do it within one business day. If you are eligible for, and select, expedited transfers, the bank could reflect your transfer as soon as the same day.
Please Note: These time estimates do not include the time needed to link an external bank account to your Personal Savings account. Learn more about linking external accounts.
