Dwolla cannot delete your account entirely*.
* Like all financial services and institutions, Dwolla is required by law to retain customer information for a minimum of five years. The two most applicable regulations are: the Bank Secrecy Act (specifically the Customer Identification Program requirements) and the Treasury Department’s Financial Record keeping Regulations-Section 1020.220. Based on these regulations, Dwolla cannot delete accounts due to the data retention policy in Dwolla's Terms of Service.
