What Is a Routing Number?
A routing number is a nine-digit code on checks and is sometimes referred to as the ABA number or check routing number. Bank routing numbers were created by the American Bankers Association to allow banks and credit unions to securely send and receive funds, as well as a way to process paper checks between banks. Your PNC routing number is unique to the area where you opened your account.
Here Are PNC’s Wire Transfer Numbers
To send or receive money involving a bank in another country, you’ll need to use a SWIFT code instead of a routing number. SWIFT stands for Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications. PNC Bank is a member of SWIFT, along with nearly 10,000 other financial institutions. Each member bank has a unique SWIFT code used in international wire transfers. PNC bank’s SWIFT code is PNCCUS33.
How To Find Your Routing Number
If you have a PNC Bank 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 PNC Bank any time at 888-PNC-BANK (888-762-2265) to find the routing number for your account.
If you are at all confused about which number to use, you should consider calling PNC Bank because using the right number could mean the difference between your money going into the right or wrong account.

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.
