PAYMENT GLOSSARY

ABA Routing Number

This is the nine digit number that appears on all checks along with the bank account number. (It is also sometimes called the Transit Routing Number.) The number identifies which bank the account is from, as each bank has its own identifying number. When you send a bank wire or ACH transaction, you need both the nine digit number and your bank account number.
