  How do I find (read) my account information from my check?

Voided Check

Companies use the Routing and Transit number, also called the R & T number and your account number to create an electronic check. The sample above shows you where to find this information.

Routing number - a nine digit number that identifies your bank or credit union. It will begin with 01 through 12 or 21 through 32. The sample above is 241022233.

Account number - your checking account number at your financial institution. If your account is at a credit union, it is a good idea to verify whether the account number on your check is the same number required for an electronic payment. Credit unions often use a different account number structure than banks. The sample account number here is 333962222. Yours may include spaces or dashes.

Be sure not to include the check number, also printed on the bottom of the check, as part of your account number. In the sample above the check number is 2048.
