Before you start, make sure to have your ABA routing number and account number.

Routing Number
  • For checking accounts, the routing and account numbers are the first set of numbers printed on the bottom of your checks, on the left side.

  • You can also find your ABA number on deposit slips—typically in the same location.

  • For savings accounts, contact your bank and ask which ABA number to use. Some banks provide this information online, although you might need to log into your account to find the right number.
