Navy Federal Credit Union has more members and holds more assets than any other credit union in America. Initially serving only Navy service members, Navy Federal now offers membership to all U.S. military personnel including Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Dept of Defense civilians. If you are active duty, retired, a veteran, or an immediate family member, you are eligible for a bank account with Navy Federal.
If you have a Navy Federal Credit Union checking account, then at some point you may want to know what your routing number is. For example, you will need both your routing and account number if you set up direct deposit or automatic bill payment. Both of these numbers will also be required when you send or receive a domestic wire transfer or order replacement checks for your checkbook.
You may know your Navy Federal account number because it was sent to you in the mail when you first opened the account. However, 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. “ABA routing transit number” is another name you may have heard for this 9-digit number.
