What Is a Routing Number?

A routing number, also known as a bank transit number or ABA number, is a nine-digit code assigned by the Federal Reserve that’s used to identify banks in financial transactions. Smaller banks or those that only exist online typically have just one routing number, but large national banks might have dozens of routing numbers.

You’ll need your Capital One routing number to transfer funds electronically.

Understanding Your Capital One Routing Number

To get a better understanding of your Capital One routing number you’ll need to examine each of its three sections. The first section is four digits long and represents the Federal Reserve Processing Symbol, with digits one and two identifying which of the 12 Federal Reserve Districts the financial institution resides in. For example, if you see 02, you’ll know the bank is located in the New York District. An 11 would indicate the company is in the Dallas District.

Digits three and four identify the regional processing center and its location.

The next four digits identify the bank, such as Capital One. The final digit is called the “check digit” because it’s used to validate the routing number.

Different Routing Numbers for Wire Transfers

Most financial institutions use a separate routing number for their wire transfers. For example, the Capital One Bank wire transfer routing number is 051405515, whereas the number for the parent company’s other subsidiary, Capital One N.A., is 056073612.

If you need to send an international wire transfer, you’ll need to provide the company’s SWIFT Code. This code is made up of both letters and numbers and can be as little as eight or as many as 11 characters. Capital One’s SWIFT Code is HIBKUS44.

How To Find Your Routing Number

You can find your routing number in the bottom left-hand corner of your Capital One check. It will be the first set of numbers, followed by your account number and the individual check number. If your checks come with deposit slips, you’ll notice the routing number is on them as well.

If you don’t have any checks or deposit slips handy, you can always call Capital One customer service to get your routing number. For non-branch accounts, call 888-810-4013. For retail branch accounts, call 800-655-2265.
