Retired Routing Transit Number Information
In accordance with American Bankers Association guidelines, SunTrust has deactivated certain Routing Transit Numbers that have been acquired through mergers with other financial institutions. As of December 31, 2007, checks with retired Routing Transit Number can not be processed, and new Routing Transit Information must be used. If your Routing Transit Number has been retired, you will need to reorder checks immediately.
If your Direct Deposit is set up using a retiring Routing Transit Number, the originator should receive a Notification of Change message. This may cause them to ask you for a new Direct Deposit Set Up form. When completing the Set Up form, use our new universal ACH Routing Transit number of 061000104 along with your account number. This universal ACH Routing Transit number will appear on your next check order either directly below or to the right of the SunTrust logo.
