TD Ameritrade does not have a routing number for wire transfers, the way banks do, and it cannot initiate wires.

Instead, TD Ameritrade uses Wells Fargo as an intermediary bank to channel the funds into your brokerage account. When setting up a domestic wire transfer into your TD Ameritrade account, here’s what you’ll need to do.

Wire funds to:

Wells Fargo Bank, NA
420 Montgomery Street
San Francisco, CA 94104
Routing number: 121000248

Credit the funds to:

TD Ameritrade Clearing, Inc.
200 S. 108th Ave.
Omaha, NE 68154
Account number: 4123214561

As the beneficiary, you will also include your name, address and nine-digit TD Ameritrade account number.

What Is a Routing Number?

Routing numbers are made up of nine digits that banks use to identify each other during transactions. The American Bankers Association created routing numbers — also called ABA numbers — to verify checks at processing endpoints. Since then, the routing number’s role has expanded to facilitate automated clearinghouses, electronic funds transfers and online banking transactions.

Can Banks Have Multiple Routing Numbers?

Yes, they can. The largest banks, such as Wells Fargo and Citibank, have multiple routing numbers to serve their customers in different states. Most of the time, though, smaller banks only use one routing number.

What Is the Routing Number for International Transfers?

SWIFT codes — also known as a BIC — are basically routing numbers used to identify financial institutions involved in international transfers. However, because TD Ameritrade has no wire transfer number, it has no SWIFT code. Instead, it uses an intermediary bank as it does for domestic wire transfers.

When setting up an international wire transfer into your TD Ameritrade account, here’s what you need to know.

Wire funds to:

First National Bank of Omaha 1620 Dodge Street
Omaha, NE 68102
Routing number: 104000016
Swift Code/BIC: FNBOUS44

Credit the funds to:

TD Ameritrade Clearing, Inc.
200 S. 108th Ave.
Omaha, NE 68154
Account number: 4123214561

Again, as the beneficiary, you will also include your name, address and nine-digit TD Ameritrade account number.
