BECU Unavailable


  I got the inevitable UNAVAILABLE error for BECU.  Can you confirm this is true?

  • Hi Silver Mixer ! Yes, I can confirm that. Thank you so much for reaching out!

    Since we’ve received reports from a number of BECU users who are running into the same issue, we’re already working on this with our import partner. They've narrowed it down to some authentication issues, and are actively working to restore the connection.

    While we hope it will be fixed within a couple days, it could take a couple weeks depending on the complexity. We’ll post updates on our Status Page as we hear back from our import partner, so please check in with us there!

    Here are the steps to keep your budget updated in the meantime:

    1. Enter transactions yourself—the mobile app is great for recording spending on-the-go (gas and groceries) and Scheduled Transactions are perfect for recurring expenses (rent and utility bills). Once you're able to link the account, imported transactions will match right up with the ones you entered. You’ll even have the chance to approve the matches—or manually match two transactions if the amounts differed.
    2. Import and categorize transactions by using File-Based Importing (in the web app). It’s a super quick and easy alternative that allows you to drag and drop a file containing your transactions right into YNAB.
    3. Click the Reconcile button in the web app and follow the steps to verify your accounts regularly. After all, correct balances are the foundation of your budget.

    And as always, please let us know if you have any other questions!

    • Nicole Thank you for looking into it.  So it looks like it's just a technical issue?  The website made it sound like that BECU has just refused importing by choice (according to the definition of UNAVAILABLE).

    • Silver Mixer Yes, it was originally a different error due to the authentication issues. Our import partner let us know this morning that they made BECU unavailable, while they make the necessary changes. We'll update the status page things progress!

  • This issue with BECU has been resolved. 🎉

    We're closing out Bank Importing threads in the forum to make sure these issues are better resolved.
