Frequently Asked Questions
What is Real-Time Payments or RTP®?
RTP supports how people live and work today by delivering a faster payment solution. The Clearing House, a payments company that is owned by the largest commercial banks–including Huntington–developed the RTP network to address the increased demand for faster, safer payment methods. The network clears and settles payments 24/7/365, allowing for the prompt delivery and availability of funds.

Simply provide your Huntington routing number and account number to a payer that has access to send RTP credits. Real-Time Payments will be directly credited into your account similar to other types of electronic transactions. You will be able to view your transaction details in online banking or on your account statement.
How do I view my RTP?
