What is a Routing Number?
A routing number directs funds to the proper bank during a transaction, it’s a way to identify check-processing endpoints. You should be able to see your nine-digit routing number on the lower-left corner of your checks.
Can banks have multiple routing numbers?
Yes, certain banks can have multiple routing numbers for geographic reasons. For example, banks like Wells Fargo and Citibank have different routing numbers for different states and for functionality. So if your bank operates in several different states, it will probably have routing numbers that correspond to each state. PNC has multiple routing numbers based on state and one for international transefers.
How to find a Routing Number on a check?
The routing number will be printed along with the account and check numbers. You can find it at the bottom-left corner of the check before your account number.
What is the Routing Number for International Transfers?
If you are needing to receive a transfer from overseas, you’ll need to provide the sender with a SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) code. SWIFT codes are routing numbers for international transactions between banks. They have eight to eleven digits with letters and numbers, unlike the routing number.
For example, if you work overseas and want to send money from your international account to a US, you’ll need a SWIFT code. Just call your bank or visit its website to find the SWIFT code for an international wire transfer.
