Optum - I know there's an issue!

Jedp Member ✭✭✭✭
Interestingly, before I saw there was a KI (known issue - this is what we call them at my work) around Optum bank accounts, I was able to add my Optum HSA account and it updated. Now it says it's unable to log in. Is this likely part of the same issue? I was able to add the account just fine, and it updated for a few days before it stopped.

    Hello @Jedp,

    Thank you for reporting this to the Community, although I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing difficulties connecting to Optum in Simplifi.

    From my understanding, Optum Bank specifically is what the active Alert/known issue is for, and connecting to Optum Financial (which includes HSA accounts) is currently available in Simplifi. With that being said, it does appear that you're receiving a 103 error for this account, which is an invalid credentials error. You'll want to troubleshoot this by following these steps: 
    1. Verify the bank being selected -- There may be several different versions of the same bank in the Add Account bank list, so be sure you're selecting the correct one. If you're not sure, compare the URL's shown for each bank.

    2. Verify your login information – Type your password/PIN into a text application to ensure you don’t have any typographical errors. Then, copy and paste your login information into Simplifi to ensure accuracy.

    3. Verify your login at the bank’s website – Try to sign in to your bank’s website using the same login credentials to ensure you've not locked yourself out of the account and that the credentials are still valid.

    4. Check for an app-specific password – Some banks require users to use a specific app-password when connecting to a third-party. Check with your bank to see if you need to use an app-specific password.

    5. Update your credentials – Try temporarily updating your password at your bank's website and then try again to connect to Simplifi.

    More details on a 103 error can be found here. Please let me know how it goes! :smile:
