Multiple Express Funded Accounts
Updated over a week ago

Topstep allows traders to have five (5) active Express Funded Accounts simultaneously.

If you earn additional funding while already having five active Express Funded Accounts, any new accounts will remain pending until you close one of your existing Express Funded Accounts.

Requesting Payouts in Multiple Express Funded Accounts

  • Each individual Funded Account will follow the same Payout policy.

  • Payout requests from each account do not affect one another.

  • If more than one Express Funded Account (sometimes referred to as "XFA") is transferred to the Live Funded Account, those funds will be added to the overall account balance.

Traders may only have one active Live Funded Account with our brokerage partners.
