    • Thanks for the links. The one Jim provided was great, but I sometimes want to look up the ABA number by the name of the bank.

      I have been using Greg Thatcher’s site for the longest time. Good if you want to type in the banks name to find the routing number, as well as using it for reverse searches.

    That’s how when you try to link up accounts, banks always know the name after you input the routing number.

  4. My school accepts online payments directly from your checking or savings account. We download the Bank Routing Number database for free from the Department of Treasury once or twice a year and use it to cross reference the routing numbers that are input by the person making the payment.

    It is a quick and easy “check balance” that we put into place and we have it upload your bank name and information to a screen shot of a virtual check. We are in our 8th year of using this process without any hitches.
