How do I find my routing number on a check?

The routing number, also called an ABA routing number, can be found in multiple ways. It’s important to provide the correct routing number in payments and fund transfers. The fastest way to find your routing number is to look at the bottom of one of your personal checks. The routing number is the nine-digit number printed in the bottom left corner of each check.
