Overview

Why does this happen?

As part of the process of moving from the Intuit ID to the Quicken ID, we securely capture and migrate your existing Intuit ID to Quicken systems.  This error can occur if you have more than one Intuit ID on record, typically if you have a ‘friendly’ username that’s not an email address (for example, “JohnDoe” instead of “JohnDoe@nomail.com”). 

To resolve this issue:

1. In the error message, click on click here:
