Your bank's routing number is used for setting up direct deposits or other online transfers.
What is a Bank Routing Number?
The U.S. Federal Reserve assigns unique routing numbers to each financial institution. ABA stands for American Banker’s Association, which is the banking association that created the Routing Transit Number (RTN).
The Routing Transit Number is the 9-digit identification number commonly found at the bottom of a check. The RTN identifies where a bank is located.
Where to lookup the bank routing number
The RTN can be found at the bottom of your paper check. Also you can visit your banks website and use their online routing number search.
To avoid errors, contact your bank or sign-in your account to look up the specific routing number for your state. Many times a bank routing number is different for paper checks and ACH transactions.
