A routing number is a 9-digit number assigned to a bank so it can send and receive funds to and from other financial institutions. The routing number determines where your account was opened. It’s also referred to as an RTN, a routing transit number or an ABA routing number.
Your bank routing number is a nine-digit code. It’s the first set of numbers printed on the bottom of your checks, on the left side. First Western’s routing number is shown below.
Your account number (usually 10 digits) is specific to your personal account. It’s the second set of numbers printed on the bottom of your checks, just to the right of the bank routing number. You can also find your account number on your monthly statement.
