If you have a checking account with Bank of America then at some point you will need to know what your routing number is. This number is also sometimes referred to as the ABA number.
For example, you will be asked for both your routing and account number if you set up employee direct deposit or automatic bill pay. Both numbers will also be required when you order new checks and when you send or receive a wire transfer.
You may know your BofA account number because it was sent to you in the mail when you first opened the account. As for your routing number, it is not always given to you as clearly and as upfront. You need to know where to look for it.
Fortunately, it is very easy to find your routing number for Bank of America.
The Bank of America routing number list is sorted by location. The location column refers to the place where you opened the account, not where you currently reside. The numbers with “Electronic” are for electronic payments, such as ACH, direct deposit, and other automatic payments. “Paper” is for non-electronic usage, such as ordering checks.
