Fifth Third is unlike many banks in the sense that they don’t use one uniform routing number. Instead they use multiple routing numbers to serve customers across different areas.

What is a Routing Number?

Routing numbers, or an ABA Routing Transit Number are used to provide banks with an accurate method of transferring money between themselves. They are numerical codes that function as an “address” for banks.

“For example, the first four digits are determined by the location of the bank and the Federal Reserve used to process customer’s payments. The “25” in the routing number corresponds to the Federal Reserve Bank in Richmond, Virginia. The next four digits are unique to the financial institution, and the 9th digit is the checksum (number used to verify data).” (Source)

Wire transfers and direct deposits require a routing number, and you always need to enter it accurately. If the number is incorrect, your money can end up in the wrong place. Large banks often have more than one routing number based on their locations.

About Fifth Third Bank

Fifth Third traces its origin to The Bank of the Ohio Valley that opened in June 1858 on Third Street between Vine and Walnut Streets in Houston’s financial district. Founded by William W. Scarborough, the bank was the city’s first bank.

During the late 1800s and early 1900s, Cincinnati banks were often opening and closing due to the absence of the Federal Reserve System. Over the course of this period, Fifth Third acquired numerous banks such as Queen City National Bank, Market National Bank, Union Savings Bank and Trust, and Third National Bank.

The Fifth Third Bancorp family of companies, with more than 20,000 employees and more than 1,200 banking centers in 10 states, is proud of its heritage to work hard to improve the lives of its customers, communities and employees.
