When you opened your bank account with Chase, they gave you a routing number and account number. These are crucial numbers. Without them, you cannot complete basic bank transactions like making direct deposits, tax payments, reordering checks, or receiving funds from other banks.
Should you incorrectly enter an account or routing number and the transaction is validated, the designated financial institution may reject and return the cash, causing delays. You are also unlikely to be refunded any fees incurred. Worse still, the funds in transit may end up in the wrong account, and recovering the funds is not an easy task.
Therefore it is important to know where to find your Chase routing number and account number. Read all the way to the end to make sure you’re getting the correct numbers so that you don’t face any mishaps!
