FirstBank Routing Number: What You Need to Know

Read more about Bank

Looking to transfer money in or out of your FirstBank account? You'll need the right routing number. Find your FirstBank routing number and learn more about money transfers in our guide.

Routing numbers are 9-digit numbers that banks use to identify themselves. Think of them as an address that lets other banks know where to find your money.

You need your routing number for many tasks, including:

  • ACH payments

  • Setting up direct deposit

  • Receiving benefits from the government, including tax refunds

  • Transferring money between accounts at different banks or investment firms

  • Automatic bill payment

  • Domestic wire transfers

Keep reading to learn the FirstBank routing number you'll need for every transaction.

Breaking Down Your Routing Number
The first four digits pertain to the Federal Reserve. The next four digits are unique to your bank. Consider those the bank's address for the Federal Reserve. The final digit is a mathematical calculation of the first eight digits—it's used to prevent check fraud.

FirstBank Routing Numbers by Account Number

FirstBank makes it easy for customers looking for their account's routing number. The routing number for all FirstBank bank accounts is 107005047.

You'll also use that number for all money transfer activity or wire transfer. But that's not all you'll need to transfer money. Keep reading to learn more.

FirstBank savings accounts use the same routing numbers as checking accounts.

How to Find Your FirstBank Account Number

To transfer money between accounts, you'll need your bank account number in addition to your routing number. Here are three ways to find your FirstBank account number:

Use a Check
You can find your routing and account number on the checks corresponding to your checking account. The routing number is the 9-digit code on the bottom left of the check. The account number is the long series of digits beside it.

Go Online

  1. Log into your FirstBank account portal online.

  2. Find the Accounts page, then navigate to History, and Statements and Reports.

  3. Click into your most recent statement. It will list your account and routing number information.

Call Customer Service
If you don't have online checking or a check handy, call FirstBank customer service at 1-800-964-3444, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

After you provide a few details to identify yourself, a representative will be able to walk you through locating your account information.

Making Domestic/International Wire Transfers

Wire transfers are a faster way to send money than an ACH transfer, though you'll likely pay a fee.

To wire funds with a personal FirstBank bank account, you must visit a local FirstBank branch and sign a Wire Transfer Agreement form. Once you have submitted the form in person, you may be able to initiate additional transfers on the phone.

You'll use the same routing number for both domestic and international wires: 107005047.

You'll also need:

  • The receiving bank's ABA number (routing number) and name of the bank

  • Beneficiary (person to whom the wire is being sent)

  • Account number of beneficiary

  • City and state of the receiving bank

  • Driver's license to show proof of ID

FirstBank Wire Transfer Fees
Incoming Domestic Wire: $10
Outgoing Domestic Wire: $30
Incoming International Wire: $10
Outgoing International Wire: $45

Receiving Domestic/International Wires

  • FirstBank's Routing Number: 107005047

  • FirstBank's Address:
    10403 West Colfax Avenue
    Lakewood, CO 80215

  • Your name and 10-digit account number

  • Any specific instructions for the money

Always be sure to double-check you have all the necessary information entered correctly.

Do Debit/Credit Cards Have Routing Numbers?

Your debit card is associated with a bank account, but you do not use a routing number for debit card transactions. Routing numbers are only used for transfers directly between bank accounts.

Likewise, credit cards do not have routing numbers since they are not directly linked to any bank account. But you may use your bank account routing number to set up the link between your credit card account and checking account to make an online payment.

Bottom Line

You'll likely need your FirstBank routing number when managing your finances. Keep it handy should you need to set up a direct deposit, automatic payment, or wire transfer.
