How To Find Your Routing Number

Citizens Bank, headquartered in Rhode Island, has branches in 14 states and Washington, D.C.  You can verify your routing number on your check by looking at the first nine digits at the bottom left-hand corner.

If you do not have a check, you should call your bank before making a transaction that requires your routing number. You can also find your routing number by logging in to your account online. Using an incorrect routing number can delay a transaction.

What Is a Routing Number?

A routing number is a nine-digit code used to identify a bank. A routing number is comprised of three parts: a Federal Reserve routing symbol, an ABA institution identifier and a check digit. You’ll need your routing number for a variety of reasons, including receiving wire transfers.

A Better Way to Bank

The American Bankers Association originally created these numbers in 1910 to help send paper checks to the correct processing centers. Now, they are also used to almost seamlessly move money between accounts and financial institutions through electronic transactions.

Citizens Bank’s SWIFT Code for International Wire Transfers

Wire transfers are usually more urgent transactions. As a result, the bank recommends you call your local branch to be sure you have the correct Citizens Bank routing number to use for a wire transaction. The routing number for a wire is often different from the normal routing number for your checking account. This separates these more urgent transactions for the bank to process at a high priority.

When you receive international wire transfers, you also need a SWIFT code. Citizens Bank’s SWIFT code is CTZIUS33.
