When a US client ask for my bank account in order to pay me (by bank transfer payment) for my work , Which information they mean?

Routing Number? Account Number? or both ? and is it safe to provide these numbers?

My guess is both, because the Routing Number is unique to the bank and the Account Number is unique to the account holder, correct ?

Yes, you need both your account number and your bank's routing number. I've a few bigger clients who pay me using ACH transfers. So much nicer than having to cash checks!
