Recurring Problem. "We can't seem to connect with your Charles Schwab account"

Signed up for Mint mid October.  Come November, December and now January I keep receiving messages that my Charles Schwab accounts were no longer updating.

A month ago I signed into Schwab to confirm my same credentials worked with them.  

At that time and each time this problem happens Schwab presents the following at login "For your security, this Login ID has been suspended." forcing me to update my password.

Seconds later I update Mint with the updated Schwab credentials.  Mint successfully validates the credentials and updates my info.

It fixes the problem only momentarily and after some days/weeks I get the same "We can't seem to connect with your Charles Schwab account."

Is there any hope for the interplay between Schwab and Mint or do I need to move on to testing Schwab with CountAbout instead?


I have a hunch my observation isn't an isolated problem per a couple other threads.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
