What Is a Routing Number?
The routing number on a check is sometimes referred to as the ABA number or check routing number. The American Bankers Association created the bank routing number in 1910 as a way to process paper checks and enable banks and credit unions to accurately send and receive funds to and from other financial institutions. Your Wells Fargo bank routing number is unique to the area where you opened your account.
Banks Can Have Multiple Routing Numbers
A bank’s primary routing number is assigned based on the location of its principal office. Banks are eligible to receive additional routing numbers if necessary to keep payments and collections routed properly. Smaller banks and online-only financial institutions typically use only one routing number nationwide. Larger banks might have routing numbers for each state in which they operate.
Because some financial institutions have multiple routing numbers, it’s important to ensure you’re using the correct one before you initiate a transaction.
How To Find Your Routing Number
If you have a Wells Fargo 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 Wells Fargo any time at 800-869-3557 to find the routing number for your account. If you are at all confused about which number to use, you should consider calling Wells Fargo because using the right number could mean the difference between your money going into the right or wrong account.

Different Numbers for Wire Transfers
Wire transfers are fast and secure. Because wire transfers are a top priority, they have separate routing numbers so financial institutions can process them differently. International wire transactions require SWIFT codes, which are international bank codes that identify particular banks worldwide.
Here are Wells Fargo’s wire transfer numbers:
|Wells Fargo Wire Transfer Numbers|
|Domestic wire transfer||121000248|
|SWIFT code||Varies based on city|
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.
