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.
PenFed has no listed SWIFT code since it’s not an international bank. However, you can still receive international funds with your TCF account. According to TCF’s website, the bank sending the funds “will usually have a correspondent relationship with a bank in the United States who then routes the funds to TCF.”
Routing numbers are nine-digit codes that enables banks to identify the location of your bank account. It’s important to know what your PenFed routing number is for certain transactions.
