How do I delete etrade.com account?
If the account isn’t used after 18 months, it will be given an “inactive” status. After that, it will eventually be purged from the system. If you want to be more active, go to the E-Trade site and locate the “Account Closure Request” link. Follow a two-step process that includes making sure you want to delete your account. Resolve all pending transactions and verify closing your account.
You can also delete your account by phone by calling 1-800-ETRADE-1(1-800-387-2331). The customer service representative will give you detailed instructions on how to close your account. After your account is closed, get the confirmation number to keep for your personal records.
A third option is to visit a local E-Trade branch to delete your account in person (you can locate the nearest one by clicking “Visit an E-Trade Branch” on their main site).
