T Rowe Price 500 Internal Server Error

Any one else having issues?

Getting an error (HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error) when attempting to sync with T. Rowe Price Retirement Plans over the last couple of days. The same error when attempting to create a new connection to T. Rowe Price or T. Rowe Price Retirement Plans. I attempted to create a connection to T. Rowe Price Brokerage and that appears to connect successfully for authentication but failed to log me in since I do not have a brokerage account. The other two give the 500 error without any username/password prompts.

Syncing to USAA, Vanguard, and TD Ameritrade are working as expected.

Using the latest version of Moneydance 2021.1 (3069).

The console logs are attached.

    Hi Jerry,

    We are sorry to hear about the problem you have encountered.

    Since T. Rowe Price,T. Rowe Price Brokerage and T. Rowe Price Retirement Plans all support direct connect you should be able to recreate the connection as outlined here.

    Alternatively, select Online Banking -> Set Up Online banking, then click the Reset Sync button.

    The error 500 is a generic Internal Server Error meaning that it could be due to the bank's servers being under maintenance. Have you tried contacting your bank directly?

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions or need more assistance.

    I figured it most likely would be on TRP's side but wanted to throw this out there in case others were having issues.

    Recreating the connection is not working as I stated previously and the Reset Sync didn't help either.

    I'll reach out to TRP in a couple days if they don't resolve it.

    I'm experiencing the same 500 error. I attempted to re-establish the connection and now I'm being asked for a Broker ID and Account Number. This is a work retirement account so there is no Broker ID

    Hi David,

    We are sorry to hear about the problem you have encountered.

    As I mentioned in my earlier post (1) on this thread this is a generic Internal Server Error meaning that the bank might be making some changes at their end. Did you try asking the bank what sort of changes are they applying?

    Also, could you let us know which version of Moneydance are you running?
    To check, open Moneydance and select Help/Moneydance --> About Moneydance, where the version and build number will be displayed.

    Did your try recreating or refreshing the connection by navigating Online Banking -> Set Up Online banking, then clicking the Reset Sync button?

    Finally, you could try creating a new data set in Moneydance by going to File -> New, then try setting up your connection in that new data set and see if you can download your data then?

    Hi all,

    We've made a change to the T. Rowe Price Retirement connection, which will hopefully resolve the problems you're seeing.

    The new connection details are available for you to use in Moneydance now.

    You should try to recreate the connection with your bank. You will need to disable your current connection and then recreate it using the New Connection button on the Online Banking Setup screen. To do so, you can follow these steps:

    1. Select your bank account in Moneydance

    2. Select Online > Setup Online Banking
    3. Click the "Disable" button. If you don't see this button, just close the window.

    4. Repeat the previous steps for any additional accounts at the same institution.
    5. Select Online > Setup Online Banking (again)

    6. Click the "New Connection" button and select your bank and hit OK
    7. Continue with the setup process, entering your username/password

    Make sure you pick "New Connection", even though your bank is still one of the connection choices after you disable it. Choosing your bank from the long list of available banks will force Moneydance to download the updated information, which should then allow you to connect.

    Please let us know if you continue to encounter problems after recreating your connection and we'll troubleshoot further.

    I just followed the below instructions and received the following when attempting to update the account after recreating the connection.

    Bank Name: T. Rowe Price Retirement Plans
    Account: T Rowe Price
    Account Number:

    I never recreated mine in my mine file, I used a backup just in case. Today I tried to connect and it worked fine without recreating the connection.

    Is the connection working for everybody else on this thread or are you still receiving an error message?

    Thank you

    This comment was split into a new private discussion: T Rowe Price 500 Internal Server Error

    T Rowe Price online update not working for me. Attached console log.
    I did not try recreation of connection, I want to make sure my log file is OK first.

    The last time I did an online update of TRowePrice was on the New Year. It worked at that time but I was using an older version of MD at that time.

    NOTE: This reply dialog opened with a "already uploaded files" named TRP.txt. I do not know why that is there, my attachment is named "TRowePrice Console Log.txt".

    I'm arriving rather late to this party, but have had the problem reported at top-of-thread since about that date, and it has reoccurred in daily download attempts since then. (Reason for procrastination: at least once in the past the problem has self-cured, or at least without effort on my part.)

    Today I investigated, found this thread and attempted the recommended fix. My experience differed in that after disabling all TRP accounts, I attempted to establish a "new connection" for the first of them. I selected the institution (T Rowe Price) and on the Next screen the correct account name was shown. Next again showed the correct account number. But the Next screen showed:

    Moneydance now has most of the information needed to connect to your financial institution for this account. Click the 'Finish' button below to complete the process.

    That is, I wasn't given opportunity to enter userid and pswd. After then Finish-ing, the Download button for the account is grayed, nor does the account download when Download-ing All Accounts.

    Please advise.

    BS Smith: As noted in thread above, I had a similar problem. Following the steps resolved my problem. I had to do it more than once. The reason is that there are different selections for TRP, apparently depending on the type of account you have. I only have a Traditional IRA account so my first selection failed and I had to try another TRP entry for "new connection". The one that worked for me was named "T. Rowe Price". The other possible selections that did not work are "T. Rowe Price Retirement Plans" and "T. Rowe Price Brokerage". So I guess it depends on the type of account(s) you have at TRP. You obviously chose the wrong one so maybe go back and follow the instructions again and choose a different TRP selection.

    Also note, I only download info once a month an based on a lot of new comments regarding Schwab in this forum leaves me full of doubt as to how long the current method will work. Maybe it's already broken???

    Good luck.
