You can find the Routing Number and your Checking Account Number within the string of numbers located at the bottom of one of your checks. Make sure you are using a check and NOT a deposit slip, since the numbers may be different. If your Account Number is not clearly recognizable, you can identify it by using the image or following the steps below.
The numbers at the bottom of your check include a 9-digit Routing Number, your Account Number and the Check Number. You can find your Account Number through the process of elimination. It may be helpful to write the string of numbers down on a piece of paper first. When writing out your bank numbers, ignore any special characters.
Step 1: Find your Bank Routing Number
The first 9 numbers from the left at the bottom of your check are your Routing Number. This number is always 9 digits.
TIP: Find the first two special characters. The Bank Routing Number is between these characters.
Step 2: Find the Check Number
Locate the string of numbers at the bottom right side of your check that matches the Check Number in the upper right-hand corner. This number is usually 4 digits, and may include a zero as the first digit.
Step 3: Identify the remaining numbers
The numbers that are left - those that are neither the Bank Routing Number nor the Check Number - are your Account Number.
NOTE: If you notice extra zeroes before or after your account number, please include them as part of your account number.
TIP: Find the second and third special characters. Your Account Number is in between these two characters.
