What Is a Routing Number?

A routing number is a nine-digit security feature banks use to identify each other during a transaction. Other names used for routing numbers are ABA numbers — which stands for American Bankers Association, which created routing numbers back in 1910 — and routing transit number.

Routing numbers aren’t only used in bank transfers. Some services require them if you’re making a payment or setting up recurring payments.

Banks Can Have Multiple Routing Numbers

As you’ve just seen, yes they can. The number of routing numbers a bank uses depends on factors such as the size of the bank — big banks like Wells Fargo and Citi® are good examples — and the regions it operates in. Some banks also acquire multiple routing numbers through mergers.

How Do You Find a Routing Number on a Check?

Your routing number can be found on the bottom-left corner of your personal checks, next to your account number. Remember not to confuse the two by entering the longer account number instead of the nine-digit routing number.

Different Routing Numbers for International Wire Transfers

Banks use SWIFT codes to identify each other globally. The numbers and letters in SWIFT codes identify the bank’s country of origin and location. They are normally a combination of eight digits and letters. Longer SWIFT codes identify a specific branch from that bank.

Fifth Third doesn’t list its SWIFT code on its website, but multiple secondary sources list it as FTBCUS3C. In the FAQ section of its website, Fifth Third recommends that customers who want to do a wire transfer should visit a branch.
