It's a set of numbers that are unique to a bank so they can transfer money. There are two easy ways to find this number. The first is to look at the bottom of your checks. There are two sets of numbers, one is your account and one is the routing number. It should also be on your bank's website.

An ACH (Automated Clearing House) routing number is an identification number for financial institutions such as a bank. The routing number is found at the bottom of printed checks. This number tells the clearinghouse which financial institution to debit or credit money to. The clearinghouse enables all banks to use one central repository.

This is the nine digit number that identifies each individual bank. It can be located on the bottom left corner of a personal check. Sometimes the number can vary depending upon where the account was opened.
