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 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 Wells Fargo 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 anytime 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.

It’s easy to find your routing number on a check — just look in the bottom-left corner. Refer to the illustration below to see where you can find your routing number.

Different Numbers for Wire Transfers

Wire transfers are fast and secure. Because wire transfers are a top priority, they often 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:

Type of Wire Transfer Wells Fargo Wire Transfer Number
Domestic wire transfer 121000248 (routing number)
International wire transfer WFBIUS6S (SWIFT code)

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.
