How to Find U.S. Account and Routing Numbers

A routing number is a 9-digit code. It will identify where your bank account was first opened. To locate your routing number, you can simply look at one of your checks. You’ll notice that the bottom of your check has three sets of numbers. The first set is the routing number, which is found on the bottom left side.

How to find your U.S. account number:

Unlike the routing number, your account number will be unique, as it will identify your bank account.

To locate your account number, you can look at your bank statements, or you can look at your checks again, as it will be the second set of numbers at the bottom. Usually, an account number will be 10-12 digits long, but its length could vary from one bank to another.

Sometimes, the account number and check number are reversed, so your account number will be found on the right side of the bottom of your check, as opposed to in the middle. You’ll know the difference because the check number will be shorter.
