What is a Routing Number?
Routing numbers are used by banks to identify each other during wire transfers. They are also known as transit numbers or ABA numbers, and are comprised of nine digits. Using 000011112 as an example, the numbers can be broken down into segments:
- 0000: The Federal Reserve routing symbol, or the Federal Reserve Bank district the bank is located in
- 1111: The financial institution itself
- 2: The check digit, which can be calculated from the previous eight digits, is used for error detection.
The American Bankers Association created routing numbers back in the early 1900’s and have been using them ever since.
Can Banks Have Multiple Routing Numbers?
People’s United only uses one routing number, but larger banks such as TD Bank and Bank of America use multiple routing numbers for different states or regions. If a bank has more than one routing number, it is not out of the ordinary.
How Do You Find a Routing Number on a Check?
- Routing number: in the left-hand corner
- Account Number: Center, in between the routing number and the check number
- Check number: Right-hand corner
You can also just remember that the routing number is nine digits long.
