What Is a Routing Number?

A routing number is a nine-digit number that identifies the financial institution that will be processing the payment. It is also called the ABA routing number, ABA number or routing transit number. These numbers are assigned to the financial institution by the American Bankers Association.

Some financial institutions have different routing numbers depending on where you opened the account, but GECU only has one.
