Quicken Direct Connect

Upgraded Quicken Connectivity Now Available

Needham Bank personal accounts have been upgraded for use with Quicken’s Direct Connect feature.

With Direct Connect, managing your finances is even easier with real-time account information at your fingertips.

Direct Connect features an encrypted two-way connection so all of your transactions and account information are automatically updated in Quicken with up to the minute details. This connection upgrade also provides the ability to pay bills and transfer funds directly within the Quicken interface.

Adding a new NB Account to Quicken

To activate Quicken’s Direct Connect feature, follow these steps:

  1. Log into NB Online Banking and select “Additional Services” from the top navigation bar.
  2. From the drop down menu, select “Connectivity for Quicken.”
  3. Follow the prompts to create a password for Direct Connect and accept the Terms & Conditions.
  4. Then within the Quicken interface, search for Needham Bank when you are prompted during the “Add an Account” process.
  5. Select the “Needham Bank - DC” option to ensure proper functionality as this is the only supported connection type.

 Updating an existing NB account to Quicken Direct Connect

If you have previously enrolled your Needham Bank accounts with Quicken, follow these steps to ensure you are utilizing the Direct Connect feature. With this new upgrade, Direct Connect is the only Quicken connectivity we officially support.

  1. Open Quicken and click on “Tools” and then “Account List.”
  2. When your accounts load, click “Edit” next to any of the Needham Bank accounts you would like to utilize with Quicken.
  3. When prompted to search for your institution, be sure to type in exactly “Needham Bank - DC” to select the Direct Connect functionality.
  4. Additional information is available via Quicken Support: How to Switch Express Web Connect to Another Connection Type.

 Please note:

  • For updating an existing NB/Quicken connection: Please be sure to update the account as noted above. If you delete the account’s profile and then reestablish as a new one, you risk losing your historical account data within Quicken.
  • There are three Needham Bank options when searching within Quicken. The only connectivity option officially supported by Needham Bank is the “Needham Bank - DC” connection type. For proper functionality, please do not select either “Needham Bank BB QF” or “Needham Bank” as we do not support those connection methods.
