1. You should review the Funds Transfer FAQ found here.


2. Here is a quote from the Funds Transfer FAQ:




Once I initiate a transfer, how soon will my funds be available?

All transfers are subject to a hold. We may hold all or part of the funds transfer up to five business days. Funds transfers submitted after 3 p.m. CT are considered the next business day and will extend the hold period by one business day.

Funds are available:

  • The same day to cover checks, pre-authorized transactions and ATM or debit card use between USAA Federal Savings Bank (FSB) checking and savings accounts before 8 p.m. CT, Monday to Friday, and to cover USAA Brokerage investment trading.

  • The previous business day for future-dated or automatic transfers that fall on a weekend or bank holiday.

  • In 3 to 5 business days for non-USAA account transfers to USAA deposit accounts.

  • In up to seven calendar days for USAA Investment Accounts when checks or electronic funds transfers are received.

I transfer fairly regulalry and from the first time it did tell me about the delay, depending on what account it can be same day, and my 401k will take 3-5 dfays. That happens with my credit union, and bank also. You sure you didnt see anything telling you there might be a delay..?

This also happened to me! I have never heard of  holding an electronic transfer! They also held my money I deposited with a money order. This is so frustrating and has cost me fees from USAA and fees from the company who tried to debit my account! Making a deposit is a nightmare!
