What Is a Routing Number?
Routing numbers are security codes banks use to identify the other financial institution during a wire transfer. Routing numbers can also be used to pay bills online, set up recurring transfers or process checks. The American Bankers Association created routing numbers — also known as ABA numbers — in the early 1900s in order to identify check processing endpoints. Accuity is the official registrar of routing numbers.
Can Banks Have Multiple Routing Numbers?
Yes, they can, as BBVA proves. Larger institutions use multiple routing numbers to cover different states. Another reason for banks to use multiple routing numbers is they might’ve acquired them during a past merger. Wells Fargo and Citibank are good examples of big banks with multiple routing numbers.
How Do You Find a Routing Number on a Check?
You can find the routing number printed on the bottom-left corner of a check. A set of three numbers are printed along the bottom of each check in this order: Routing number, account number and check number.
