    It’s exactly that…the “routing” number. Every bank has one and it’s unique to them The other numbers are where it gets specific.

    Yes. You can find the routing number by looking at the bottom of one of your checkbooks. In the string of numbers at the bottom of your checks, the first set of numbers are the routing number, then the account number, then the check number.

    of course. The routing number belongs to the bank. Ask them for it.

    Probably not. The last number on one shoudl be 1 and the other should be a 2, but don’t “bank” on that…ha ha, I crack myself up

    The routing in the beginning will be the same but the account number will be different. Let your bank take care of things and do not give out those numbers too easily.

    No it is not. The routing numbers are the first sets of numbers you see on the bottom of your check. The second set is your account number.

    Yes. The bank’s A.B.A. (American Bankers’ Association) routing/transit number is the same nine digits bank-wide. Your savings and checking account numbers will, of course, be different numbers used in addition to the bank’s ABA routing number. And finding out what your bank’s ABA routing number is, after 5:00 PM, can be quite a challenge if your bank doesn’t furnish it on their web site or in their literature (which most do not)!! Thomas’ Banking Directory, a hard-cover reference book available at any GOOD, well-equipped public library (not many are that good), will usually have this information unless your bank is a new one created/chartered after the book’s edition was printed. Also, bank wires are not instantaneous like phone calls or telegrams. They actually take several hours to a day and a half. “Wire” is actually a misnomer. The funds go through several complicated steps involving the Federal Reserve, hence the $ 14.-and-up fee for a bank wire transfer. For you, simply reading the routing number off the bottom of your check will give you what you need, as long as you make sure it is nine digits and you can tell it apart from your checking account number. The routing number is first (at lower left), and your checking account number follows that.

    only checking accounts have routing numbers saving account only have your account number on it. directed deposit is the best thing to do.
    you may need to ask the bank for the saving account.

    Look at it this way, is your mother’s bedroom the same as yours?
    Both have the same street address (routing number) but are not in the same room (account number)
    To be clear, when goceries are routed to your house they are not deposited into the bathroom?

    yes, the only thing the routing number is is a personal number for the bank. Its like a store number, but it is a store number for all of your banks branches

    Depends on the back and type of account you have if you have a joint checking/savings account then there will be one number at the end that differs but the routing number should stay the same. The routing number if for the bank in general and the account numbers are what changes. so the routing numbers stay the same.
