account routing info (micr) is null, and user tax ID.

Hello,

Two questions please:

  1. I am using Account Information (US) API. Method that retrieves extended account information returns six sample accounts, and property "micr" is null for all of them. If I understand it correctly, micr is the same as ABA or routing number which I need. Is it null because these are test accounts and real data will always have it populated, or is there some different API call which can provide micr of the current Financial Institution to be used as default?
  2. I am using Consumer Profile API to retrieve user name, address, phone, etc. One additional property I need is tax ID (typically SSN) for the current user. How can I obtain that?

Thanks,

-Anatoli

Hello Anatoli,

The MICR field returned in the API is only a portion of the full MICR line and returns only the account number without the routing number. As for the tax ID filed, currently we don't have an API that will return this field or the SSN.

Best regards,
Radu

Hello Radu,

Thanks for your reply. Could you please clarify the following:

  1. If MICR field returns only the account number, how is it different from similar fields such as accountNumber and various parts of coreComponents sub-model found in the same ExtendedAccount data model?
  2. How can I obtain routing number for a given account?

Thanks,

-Anatoli
