What Is a Routing Number?
The American Bankers Association developed routing numbers more than a century ago to identify individual federal- and state-chartered financial institutions. That’s why routing numbers are also called ABA numbers (as well as RT numbers, short for Routing Transit). Nowadays, routing numbers are used in all electronic banking transactions, including wire transfers, automatic deposits and online payments. A routing number is assigned to a financial institution when it maintains an account with the Federal Reserve Bank.

Can Banks Have Multiple Routing Numbers?
As PNC demonstrates, banks can have many routing numbers — especially large national banks that operate in multiple states. ABA policy states that eligible banks are entitled to five routing numbers — one associated with its principal office and four additional numbers. Banks can also request more routing numbers, but these requests must be approved by the Routing Number Administrative Board. Requests for additional routing numbers are often necessitated by mergers and acquisitions.
Banks operating in many states, such as PNC Bank, might not only have different routing numbers in each state but also more than one routing number within a single state. It’s a good idea to periodically check the routing number at your local branch, especially if you are notified of a merger involving your bank.

Different Routing Numbers for International Wire Transfers
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.
