Like with the Wells Fargo app and online account, finding your Bank of America routing and account number is easy if you look in the right place.
As you may already know, if you do not know your bank routing and account number, you won’t be able to set up direct deposit from your employer. Also, you cannot perform wire transfers or receive payments from institutions such as the IRS or brokerage firms like Robinhood without your Bank of America routing and account number.
Thankfully, Bank of America has made it very easy to find this information through their BoA mobile banking app, their online website, or even by looking at one of their paper checks.

Routing, account number on a check Bank of America
If you have a paper check from your checking account, that’s another way of finding your routing and account numbers.
As you can see from the Bank of America check diagram, your ABA Check Routing Number is the first set of nine-digit numbers on the bottom left side of the check.
The second set on the check is your 12-digit account number.
The third set of numbers is your check number.
Finally, the fourth set of numbers on the check should be your ACH Routing/Transit Number.
But wait a minute, why are there two routing numbers, and which one should I use? Don’t worry. Both, the ABA Check Routing Number and the ACH Routing/Transit Number are usually the same .
In case they are not the same, which is rare, ABA Check Routing is used on paper checks. On the other hand, ACH Routing/Transit is used for digital/electronic transfers such as e-checks.
