What Is a Routing Number?
A routing number is a nine-digit code on checks and is sometimes referred to as the ABA number or check routing number. Bank routing numbers were created by the American Bankers Association to allow banks and credit unions to securely send and receive funds, as well as a way to process paper checks between banks. Your Chase routing number is unique to the area where you opened your account.
Chase Wire Transfer Numbers
To complete an international wire transfer, you’ll use a SWIFT code instead of a routing number. The SWIFT code is an international bank code that identifies financial institutions worldwide. You’ll need to give this code to anyone who wants to send money to you from overseas.
In addition to using the SWIFT code, you must supply specific information to your bank whenever someone is wiring money to you from another country. This information includes your account number, shown in the following example, and your name as it appears on the account.
When you’re transferring money to someone internationally, the recipient will also need to know their bank routing number to receive the money. If you’re making or receiving a domestic wire transfer, there’s a specific number for that as well.

How To Find Your Routing Number
If you have a Chase checking account, you can also find your routing number on a check — the check routing number is the first nine numbers in the lower-left corner. You might not have a check handy, however, so you can also call Chase any time at 800-935-9935 to find the routing number for your account.
If you are at all confused about which number to use, you should consider calling Chase because using the right number could mean the difference between your money going into the right or wrong account.

Know Your Routing Number
Remember that the routing number on a check might be different from the one you’d use for a wire transfer. You might want to check with your financial institution before you engage in transactions that require accurate routing number information — if the sequence is off by a single digit, your money will go someplace else.
