I'm trying to add funds to my Roth IRA via an after-tax-401k-in-service-distribution paid out as a check. Check is payable to Vanguard, FBO <me>, and this has always worked. I've done it this way about 5 times over the past couple of years. The process has always been glitchy, but it's always worked, eventually.
I am using exactly the same options I've always used for this and have been successful previously:
But I'm getting this error:Acct: Roth IRA brokerage
To: Federal Money Market
From: Mobile check investment
Is this a rollover from your employer sponsored plan: Yes
Is this a rollover from a designated Roth employer-sponsored plan: No
Check front: <image>
Check back: <image>
I've seen other folks post about a different error message about not recognizing the check, I am not getting that at all. However, the error message I see is particularly unhelpful as it gives me no clue as to why there is a problem (is it a problem on their end, does it not like my check, etc). I tried Saturday, Sunday, and today, and I get the same error. I tried on my wife's Android phone and I get an error on there as well.We're unable to complete your request at this time. Please cancel your transaction and try again later.
Anyone else having trouble with this?
I realize this is a first world problem, but I really don't want to have to mail this deposit with a form (risking loss, etc).
