There are a few different ways you can typically obtain your routing number:

  • The easiest option is to look on the front of your GECU checks. The nine-digit number in the lower left-hand corner is your routing number. It should be located next to two other sets of numbers to the right which are your account number and check number.
  • If you don’t have a check readily available, you can often obtain your bank’s routing number by logging into your online banking portal and looking under your account settings. You can also call GECU directly at (800) 772-4328. You may have to answer a few security questions, but you should be able to request your GECU routing number over the phone as well.
