What Is My Educational Employees Credit Union Routing Number?

FT Contributor  | 

The Educational Employees Credit Union (EECU) routing number is 311981614. Some banks or credit unions have more than one branch, which can make it difficult to know which routing number to use. Luckily, EECU has only one all-purpose routing number.

EECU was first known as the Fort Worth Teachers Credit Union. It’s based in Fort Worth, Texas, and provides banking services for teachers and administrators.

What Is a Routing Number?

You could say that a bank account number identifies you. In the same vein, a routing number identifies your financial institution. Routing numbers are nine digits long and are needed for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Transferring funds between banks;
  • Sending or receiving a wire transfer;
  • Setting up an electronic funds transfer (EFT);
  • Requesting a direct deposit of your paychecks or government benefits.

A wire transfer could be a faster and more secure alternative to sending a personal check. The only drawback is the cost for both the sender and receiver. EECU’s wire transfer fees are:

  • Outgoing domestic wire transfers: $20;
  • Incoming domestic or international wire transfers: $15;
  • International wire transfers: Varies.

Where Can You Find Your EECU Routing Number?

If you’re familiar with writing a check, you can easily find the EECU routing number. Look at the first nine digits at the lower left-hand corner of your check, just below the memo field. Chances are you’ll also need your bank account number, which is the next grouping of 10 numbers following the routing number. Once you have these two identifying numbers, you’re ready to go.

If you don’t have access to personal checks, you can always refer back here or visit the credit union’s website. If you need your bank account number as well, contact EECU’s customer service line at (800) 538-3328.
