Vanguard ... Ever Lost Track of Your Accounts?

Odd thing, and I've sent them an email about it, but ...

We have a portion of our portfolio with Vanguard invested in their variable annuities.* Always pops up along with our 'taxable' portfolio on the*web site.

Yesterday, no variable annuity data.* No notice, no explanation.* Just not there.* Odd.* Ever run into this?

Looking forward to finding out if my money made it with me into 2006.*

You're not alone. Many others are having the same problem. Below is a link to the Morningstar boards talking about the same thing.

Re: Vanguard ... Ever Lost Track of Your Accounts?

Thanks, fire5soon ... I don't expect this to be a real problem, but it is irritating, and a bit unsettling at first.

It frustrates me that Vanguard and Fidelity treat variable annuities as poor stepchildren in their systems. Especially Fidelity. Vanguard has a very good web site generally. With Fidelity, I often feel as though I'm dealing with a dismal banking source like CitiStreet.

Happy new year.

I agree that Vanguard can be annoying at times... but with the few hundred $'s a year I'm saving in ER's with them I can stand a little annoying
