TD Ameritrade is a well-known broker that is considered by some to be among the best in the industry. Despite dealing more with investments and the stock market, TD Ameritrade still uses routing numbers for a variety of purposes. Keep reading to learn what TD Ameritrade’s routing number is.

TD Ameritrade Routing Number

TD Ameritrade uses the following routing number to set up direct deposits into your TD Ameritrade account.

TD Ameritrade Routing Number
021912915

TD Ameritrade does not have a routing number for wire transfers, the way banks do. 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.

A Better Way to Bank

Since then, the routing number’s role has expanded to facilitate automated clearing house transfers and electronic funds transfers.

Can Banks Have Multiple Routing Numbers?

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

How Do You Find a Routing Number on a Check?

If your bank account comes with checks and you have one on hand, you can find your routing number along the bottom of the check on the left-hand corner. The routing number is the first string of nine digits. It’s followed by your account number and the related check number.

What Is TD Ameritrade’s Routing Number for International Wire Transfers?

SWIFT codes — also known as BICs — are basically routing numbers used to identify financial institutions involved in international transfers. However, just as TD Ameritrade has no wire transfer number, it also 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: 16424641

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