Plan Destination/Newport Group 401(k) no longer working. Bank says they can't help, Mint says they cannot fix because of 2 step authentication (phone code via text/call)

The login information is correct, however a phone code is required.

Hi Richard,

Good day!

Thank you for contacting

I ran your account in our system and thoroughly checked the Plan Destination (The Newport Group) and its returning an error different form the escalated before.

It appears that your account has an authentication problem. This generally happens when a  onetime pass code is used as a form of multi-factor authentication (MFA) on the bank’s website that Mint is unable to support. This started on < 9:06AM Wed, Jan 11, 2017.

To verify, please check your bank’s website to see if they have changed/added new forms of authentication methods or if you have modified your online profile to include an enhanced form of security authentication.

If this is the case, we will be unable to aggregate data for this account, and there is nothing more we can do. We apologize for any inconvenience or frustration this may cause.


Note: Our e-mail system assumes that issues are resolved if no customer update is received in 5 days and automatically closes the incident. Please know that this should not stop you from replying to this email so we can continue working with you on this issue.

Hi Richard

Thank you for your patience and for your effort in resolving this issue.

Since your bank has added new security feature on their end we cannot do anything about , if you can contact your bank please do it so and update us as soon as you get information from them.

Thank you and we will wait for your response.

More Actions

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.
