What are ACAT Fees?

The Automated Customer Account Transfer System (ACATS) is the National Securities Clearing Corporation's (NSCC) central processing system for the transfer of positions and accounts between brokerage firms that are participants of the NSCC's ACAT program. The ACAT system allows broker dealers to enter, review, and settle account transfers in a fully automated manner.

You need to have an approved account with a firm to which you are transferring an existing account before you start the ACAT transfer. The ACAT process will take longer when a customer attempts to transfer positions that are not paid in full, have unsettled funds (for example, if you just executed an order at some firms it will take 3 days to settle), or restricted stock. You need to take this time factor into account when you transfer positions.

Most full transfers take 10 to 20 business days. Any residual balances that remain with the delivering brokerage firm after your transfer is completed will follow in approximately 10-20 business days although this can vary depending on the residual sweep schedule set up with the delivering firm. If you have any questions regarding residual sweeps, please contact the delivering firm directly so that they can force out the remaining balance. Most partial transfers take 10 days to 2 weeks, although this time frame is dependent upon the transferring firm, and may take longer.

Some mutual funds cannot be held at all brokerage firms. This typically applies to proprietary and money market funds. These funds will need to be liquidated prior to transfer. There is a similar situation with some penny stocks - ask your delivering firm if you could transfer your specific penny stocks.
