Error trying to add Securian (Minnesota Life) account

sswriter Member ✭✭
There was a problem during communication with our servers:
Can't setup 'Securian Financial (Investments, Annuities and Insurance)'


I can send the detailed error info if requested.

    I sent the error information directly from Quicken, so you should have it. I'm not sure what you mean by "connection method." I click Accounts --> New --> Investments --> Other -- Then I select "Securian Financial (Investments,..) - Minnesota Life". I enter the user ID and password and click the button to connect. There are no options to select a connection method.

    @sswriter Please do TOOLS, Account List.  The info that @Quicken Jasmine  is requesting is in the "Transaction Download" column.

    @NotACPA - Quicken MAC does not have TOOLS. Also, because I'm unable to set up the new account it won't be in any list. I'm not finding "Transaction Download" anywhere.

    Hello sswriter,

    I believe Jasmine is referring to the Connection Type, which can also be called the 'Connection Method.' We are wondering whether you are using Quicken Connect, Web Connect, or Direct Connect in order to work through your bank's online services.

    Here's how it looks to add an account: (no options for method)
  • Hi, @sswriter

    Thank you for getting back to us with the update, though I am sorry you are still experiencing this error. 

    You may check the Connection Method that @Quicken Jasmine mentioned by selecting Options directly to the left of the Continue button in the bank list. (Accounts > New > Investments > Other > Financial Institution > Options) We have received your logs. 

    OK (DISCOVERED_ACCOUNTS_READY_FOR_USER) - We often find this error in cases when we are trying to connect to the wrong instance of a financial institution. Could you please try to add the account through the instance of Securian labeled "Securian Financial Services, Inc."? Typically we find that investment accounts (with a few exceptions) tend to be on Direct Connect. The instance you mentioned only allows for a Quicken Connect method. The instance I mentioned is a Direct Connect method and has the same URL as the main page of Securian. 

    Once you have tried this, please reach back out with an update so that we may continue troubleshooting this error. Thank you!

    Thanks for all your help. The problem must be because it's an annuity (I'm guessing). I can login just fine at ("Securian Financial Services, Inc.). But, when I try it through Quicken it tells me that the login info isn't valid. There must be something different about the Annuity is all I can figure. I appreciate all the quick responses. I'm going to give up on this because we'll be moving this to an IRA within the next month or two and I know I can connect the brokerage account. Thanks again.
  • Hi, @sswriter

    Thank you for your update, though I apologize that you were unable to get the annuity to connect successfully. I am, however, happy to hear you have a game plan with the IRA/Brokerage coming up in the next month or two!

    If you have any additional questions or are in need of additional support, please reach back out to us so that we may assist you further. Thank you!
