A DDA number is the account number of a demand deposit account or checking account. A checking account and a DDA are equivalent financial instruments.
Two number codes appear at the very bottom of a bank-issued check. The group of nine digits on the left is the American Banker’s Association number or bank routing number, which is used to identify the exact bank where the account is located. Immediately to the right of it comes the DDA or checking account number, which is unique to each account.
The majority of consumer bank accounts and DDAs permit the owner to withdraw funds at any time, though a few days’ notice may be required in some situations.
NOW accounts are a distinct category. The abbreviation denotes a negotiable order of withdrawal account. A NOW account functions similarly to a bank or credit union checking account, but it also earns interest on the balance. In this instance, the financial institution may request a seven-day notice prior to any withdrawal of cash. However, in actual practise this is uncommon.
Even though checking capabilities are offered on some other types of accounts, such as money market funds and loan accounts, DDAs and NOW accounts are frequently chosen by individuals for everyday use.
