How To Find the State Employees’ Credit Union Routing Number

If customers ever have any difficulty locating SECU’s routing number, there are two easy ways to find it:

  • On a check
  • On the institution’s website

Referring to a Check

The SECU routing number is the nine digits that can be found in the bottom left corner of a check. The routing number comes just before the customer’s account number, the latter of which includes a prefix of “086.”

Visiting SECU’s Website

For customers who don’t have immediate access to a physical check, SECU’s routing number can also be found on the institution’s website. The nine-digit routing number can always be found on the top right-hand side of the screen, no matter which webpage the customer is on.
