How to Find Your Check Routing Number
At the bottom of your check are 3 groups of numbers: your routing number, account number and check number.
The bank’s routing number is the first set of numbers in the lower left corner of your check. Routing numbers (or sometimes also called an ABA number) are 9-digits that are used to identify the financial institution associated with your account.
The character symbol around the numbers is not part of the routing number on a check. Routing numbers are public. Bank Five Nine's routing number is 075902421
