A routing number (sometimes also referred to as a Routing Transit Number or ABA Number) is a nine digit code used in the United States used to identify a financial institution for the purposes of money transfer.
The routing number appears on the bottom of negotiable instruments such as checks, and was originally designed to facilitate the sorting, bundling, and shipment of paper checks back to the check writer’s account. The routing number is also used by Federal Reserve Banks and Automated Clearing House to process direct deposits, funds transfers, bill payments, and other automated transfers.

CFCU’s ABA/routing number is 264080811. You can find this number at the bottom of a CFCU check. You will see three groups of numbers. The first group is your routing number. The second is your account number. The third is the check number on that particular check. If you are signing up for direct deposit or requesting an automated payment from your checking account, you would use the first two groups of numbers only. You would not use the check number.
