How to Find Which Is My Bank Branch?

If you have a bank account, the address of your bank branch might be printed on your statements, checks or other mail from the bank. Otherwise, you can call your bank or look online to find your branch. Some online-only banks won't assign you to a physical branch, and at many other banks, you can conduct business at any branch, online or on the phone.

Bank Branches

Many banks associate your bank account with a particular branch, and you can go there to get help with your banking needs. You may also need to indicate your bank branch address to sign up for certain direct deposit programs or to pay bills directly from your bank account. The branch can also affect the routing number that's printed on your checks and be used for bill pay and direct deposit.

Often your account will be associated with the branch where you first opened it, but the situation can be more complicated if bank branches closed or merged or you opened your account online, over the phone or by mail.

Look at Your Bank Documents

Sometimes your bank branch address is printed on your regular bank statements, on other letters or documents you may have received from the bank, or even on your checks. Look through the paperwork you've received from your bank to see if your branch address is visible. If you don't receive paper statements and just get all your documents online, you can check your online statements as well.

Call the Bank

If you don't see your bank branch information online or in the paperwork you have from the bank, give the bank a call. You should be able to find a number for your bank on your statements, on the back of your credit or debit card, or online.

Branchless Banking

Some banks don't associate your account with a branch at all. Some banks now operate online-only, and simply don't have branches. If you have an online-only bank, you'll need to do all your banking through the bank's website, mobile app or customer service phone line or use an ATM. These banks will often also provide a mailing address if you need to send a letter to the bank or want to deposit a physical check by mail.

Others may tell you to use a national address for the bank if anyone asks for your branch address for services like direct deposit. Contact your bank or visit its website to find out if this is the case.
