Bank Routing Numbers
A bank routing number is a 9-digit number, printed at the bottom of your checks, which accompanies your personal bank account number to identify the financial institution associated with your account.
You may be asked for your bank routing number on a variety of forms for financial transactions. Most commonly you’ll need to know your bank routing number for setting up direct deposit payments, but you may also need it to pay a bill online or to make a wire transfer.

How to Find Your Routing Number On a Check
If you have a physical check available, you can easily find your bank routing number.
There are numbers printed at the bottom of each check:
- The first, nine-digit number is you bank routing number.
- The second, ten- or eleven-digit number is your bank account number.
These numbers will remain the same on all of your checks. The only number that will change is the check number, printed in the top right-hand corner of the check and after the account number at the bottom of the check. Check numbers are sequential and can be used for reference and to track the number of checks you have used from your current book.
