Zenith Bank PLC is very popular in Nigeria as the bank has customers in all states of the country and this article will be providing information on how these customers can check their bank account number.
1.) Cheque Book
A cheque book is issued by Zenith bank to customers who are running cheque accounts. On your cheque slip, you would find details of your bank account and from there, you can view your account number.
Looking at the bottom of a slip of your Zenith bank cheque book, you are likely to find 3 series of numbers.

The 2nd series of numbers you see is your bank account number (provided you are the owner of the cheque). The last series of numbers you see is your cheque number.
Since you are looking for your Zenith bank account number, you do not have any business with the first and third series of numbers. The second series of numbers is what you are looking for.

One of the most common documents commercial banks issue to their customers is a bank statement. This is a document that contains information about your recent debit and credit transactions along with you’re account balance. This document as well contains your bank details which include your account number.
If you can lay your hands on any bank statement that has been issued to you, you can use it to check your bank account number. The account number can be found at the top corner of the bank statement slip and it is usually listed with your account name.
Even if you do not have a hard copy bank statement, you can still check using a soft copy. Zenith bank does send monthly statements to their customers via email and you can check yours for one. For your interest, you can request for a bank statement from your bank anytime you need one.
