If you have a checking account with Chase Bank, also known as JPMorgan Chase and Co., then at some point you will need to know what your routing number is.
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 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 Chase. This number is also sometimes referred to as the ABA number. All you need to do is grab the checkbook associated with your checking account and look at the bottom of one of the checks. You should see two or three sets of numbers displayed horizontally along the bottom. The first set of numbers on the bottom left of the check is your routing number. It should be 9 digits long.
If for some reason you can’t find your checkbook, and want to know your routing number, you can simply view the following list. The Chase routing number list is sorted alphabetically by location. The location column refers to the place where you opened the account, not where you currently reside.
|Chase Location||Chase Routing Number|
|New York (Downstate)||021000021|
|New York (Upstate)||022300173|
Most banks have only one routing number. You might think all routing numbers for Chase are the same, but that’s not the case. They are separated by state and region. For instance, the routing number of accounts in Florida is 267084131 while the number for accounts in Texas is 111000614. But for New York, if you opened the account downstate your routing number will be different from an upstate account holder.
In addition to the above list, you also have the option of visiting your local Chase branch and asking a teller to give you the routing number. You can also visit Chase Bank’s website online at chase.com.
If you prefer to call, you can call your branch’s phone number or request the routing number from a customer representative by calling Chase’s main toll-free support at 1-800-935-9935.
