From the Schwab application page, click the "Connect Schwab" button:

A popup window from Schwab Advisor Center will appear, prompting you to enter your credentials and accept terms. Please note, if you use a one-time-password (OTP), you will enter your Schwab password, followed by your OTP.

Wealthbox will attempt to connect to Schwab and begin transferring accounts for which you have download access in Advisor Center. If you are an FSA, you may be required to accept additional terms and conditions from Schwab for your firm.

Accounts from Schwab should begin displaying on Wealthbox contact record pages within 24-48 hours.
