What Is a Routing Number?

A bank routing number is assigned by the American Bankers Association and consists of nine digits that identify a financial institution in a transaction. The first four numbers are Federal Reserve identifiers. The first two of those indicate in which of the 12 Federal Reserve Bank districts a bank is located, and the next two show which Federal Reserve check-processing center is assigned to your bank.

The next four numbers identify your banking institution, as banks are assigned identifying numbers much like checking accounts. The last number is a check digit, which is calculated from the first eight digits.

Different Numbers for International Wire Transfers

A wire transfer is one of the fastest ways you can transfer money to someone electronically. The money is moved from one bank to another electronically, and you don’t need a check to complete the transaction.

If you’re moving the money abroad, you’re making an international transfer, and you might need to take exchange rates into consideration when you complete the transaction. The routing number on a check is different from the ones you use for wire transfers.

Make sure you use the correct number so the funds will be credited correctly. Here are Bank of America’s wire transfer numbers:
