What Is a Routing Number?

Sometimes, we supply our account number so often that we forget about the importance of the routing number right beside it.

Also known as a routing transit number or ABA routing number, your routing number is a financial identifier that uses numerical form to communicate your bank’s information to other banks. Regardless of where you are in the world, your bank’s routing number will immediately and easily relay your bank and account details when you transfer money from one bank to another.

A routing number is an integral part of your account, helping to facilitate financial transactions such as wire transfers and electronic funds withdrawals for tax payments. You also will need to supply your routing number when setting up direct deposit payments from your job or another source.
