ABA routing numbers

As Registrar of Routing Numbers for the American Bankers Association (ABA), LexisNexis Risk Solutions is responsible for the assignment of routing numbers in accordance with the ABA Routing Number Policy.

  • Preliminary, or final, charter approval from the chartering agency (State Banking Department, OCC, NCUA etc.)
  • The application fee: see application for fees.

Upon receipt of the completed application form, charter approval and application fee, the Routing Number Application will take approximately two weeks to process. Please note that submitting incomplete information may delay processing.

Separate forms can be provided for:
