How long does it take for dividends to be paid?

Typically, do we receive dividend payments on the exact payment date?

Or does it take a few days to clear into our account?

Thanks for the forum and quick replies by the way! :slight_smile:

I have had many dividends paid to me, normally they take less then 3 days after payment date.


I’ve seen some people say to expect delays of up to 2 weeks, depending on your platform or the company itself. Sometimes the payments come instantly but face delays from your bank etc if that is where the dividends end up going.

Only time will really tell and by then you will be so used to receiving them that the exact day you get the money won’t matter so much I guess. However long it ends up taking you, expect that to be the norm for all future payments.

@askeyt Dividend payouts usually take up to 3 working days after the official payment date. There are corner cases where it might take a bit longer but that’s quite rare.
