How long does it take a dividend payment to show up in your account?

why would it not just be an electronic transfer? seems kinda weird to me. Admittedly, this is my first ever div that I have received in a non-taxable account.

What kind of "account" do you have? I receive dividends in my Schwab account the day after pay date 100% of the time.

They probably paid your dividend to some poor shrimp boat captain.

That may mean USAA receives all dividends from the payers and then has to distribute the payments to its account holders. Could explain the delay.

Or then again, you may just be fricked......

The check's in the mail, I swear. You should get it in 10 to 15 business days.

I can't believe no one has asked him if he is getting x-div day and payout day switched up.

That would explain it. I've been on a roll of not thinking through posts lately.

So my div went through but my bank did an automatic reinvest and now I have partial shares. I didn't even know that was possible for individual stocks.
