My loan moved from GMAC to Ocwen. Quicken does not recognize Ocwen. How do I sync that into Quicken ?

If the financial institution is not listed in the FIDir.txt that gets installed with your Quicken and updated with each Online Update (or One Step Update), then you won't be able to setup online services with them in Quicken.

Quicken Windows 2013 is the only Quicken product that has online services (download transactions) available for loan accounts, at the time of this posting. All other products would have been manual data entry, so it wouldn't matter if the financial institution is supported by the FIDir.txt or not.

If your loan account is in Quicken 2013 and enabled for online downloads with GMAC, and your loan was paid off at GMAC by Ocwen, GMAC will transmit payoff and closing statement information to Quicken taking that account to a zero balance and allowing you to close it in your data file. You would then setup a new, manual Loan account for Ocwen to track your principal + interest payments and link that liability to the asset you had assigned to the GMAC liability.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
