Known Connection Issues

This list is updated at least once a week:

  • Acorns -Some accounts are having trouble connecting or getting updates. 
  • Ally - Ally is sending transaction info with the name of the location for the charge in the place of the merchant name. May give the error message "Vendor systems are down". Please try again, we are working with Ally on a fix. Ally investments may report as cash accounts and need to be recategorized in Monarch as investment accounts. Transactions may show locations instead of merchant names. 
  • American Express - Some accounts are having trouble connecting or getting updates.
  • American Express Personal Savings - Has implemented changes that block connections.
  • Bank of America - New account connections may fail. Please wait and try again.
  • Barclaycard - The duplicate transactions issue should be fixed. Please reach out if you are still seeing issues!
  • Capital One - Capital One is currently limiting how often apps like Monarch can automatically refresh. We've asked Capital One to allow apps to connect more frequently but for now manual refreshes should work.
  • Capital One Credit Cards - Duplicate transactions may show up when the account is added, either during the initial connection or on updates. Capital One is working on a fix.
  • Cash App - CashApp will sign-out users every 2-3 days and force them to answer their MFA challenge once more to get re-connected.

  • Citibank - May prevent users from connecting, some transaction updates may fail so try a manual refresh of the account.
  • Citi Custom Cash Cards - May appear to be missing due to an existing issue that is being worked on.
  • Discover - Discover only allows updates between 8am - 8pm eastern time. Importing check transactions will often fail. A bug exists where Discover may delete the account connection leading to new transactions no longer coming in. We're currently working with them on a fix.
  • Fidelity - Fidelity blocks all connections weekdays 9am - 5pm (ET). You will have to connect your Fidelity account at night or weekends outside these hours. Once connected Monarch will refresh at night and weekends. The connection status will show red or "down" during the hours Fidelity blocks connections.
  • Fidelity MFA - does not allow apps like Monarch to connect to them when MFA is turned on, we've asked them to update their security settings to allow this but for now MFA with Fidelity will not connect to Monarch.

  • TD Ameritrade - May return an incorrect balance. MFA is not supported.
  • TD Bank - TD Bank currently only allows transaction updates daily between 11pm-6am EST. Try a force refresh during that time. As of April 20 2022, TD Bank will require re-authentication every 90 days for all users who have connected their TD accounts through any third-party aggregator. Essentially this means that every 90 days, TD will disconnect your account and we will need to reauthenticate to get it working again.

As a last resort if you are having connection issues you can always manually add transactions to a connected account or even create a separate Manual Account until the connection is repaired.
