You can obtain your bank/branch number and the account number from a check for that account as the example below shows. You can also obtain this information from the financial institution where the account is held.
The account number is numeric. Do not include a dash or any other symbols. It consists of the following,
- An eight-digit account number. If the account number is less than eight digits, use leading zeros.
- A four-digit suffix. If the suffix is less than four digits, use leading zeros.
For example, if the account number is 12345 and the suffix is 789, the entire 12-digit account number would be 000123450789.
Note: Credit union accounts cannot be used for international ACH.
The bank/branch number is numeric. The bank/branch number consists of the following,
- A two-digit bank number.
- A four-digit branch number.
For example, if 03 is the bank number and 0123 is the branch number, the bank/branch number is 030123. Do not include a dash or any other symbols.
