You may receive the following message when you attempt to update your account transactions in Quicken:

"CC-505 - Quicken is unable to update your account. This may be due to a temporary server issue or a communication error. Please try again."


You may receive the following message when you attempt to add a financial account in Quicken:

"CC-505 - Quicken can't add this account because the [financial institution's] website is temporarily unavailable. Please try again in a few hours. Thank you for your patience!"

Note: You may be able to log into the bank's website successfully and still receive this error in Quicken. This is because the error is caused by an issue on the bank's servers (typically a block placed by the bank) that Quicken uses to download transactions.

American Express Customers: To avoid excessive server traffic, American Express limits connectivity on Mondays. A CC-505 error will typically occur on Mondays for American Express accounts for this reason. It's recommended that you try updating at a later time. 

First, wait one business day 

This error message is typically caused by a temporary issue on your bank's servers. You can try updating again in a few hours or the next business day.

Second, if waiting one day does not resolve the issue, refresh your online account information

  1. From your account register, select the Actions gear icon at the very top right of your register (Ctrl + Shift + N).
  2. Select Update Now.
