What Is a Regions Routing Number?
In addition to being referred to as an ABA routing number, a routing number is also sometimes called a bank transit number. This number is assigned by the U.S. Federal Reserve as a way to uniquely identify a specific financial institution. No two banks have the same routing number.
Whereas online-only banks and smaller banks such as USAA and Navy Federal Credit Union only have one associated routing number, it’s more common for financial institutions to have multiple ABA numbers to accommodate their many branches. For example, Regions Bank has numerous branches throughout 16 states, and most states have different routing numbers.
Use your Regions routing number when you’re signing up for direct deposit. Use Regions’ LockIt service to protect your account from unwanted transfers and purchases.
What Do the Numbers Mean?
Each routing number is broken down into three main sections. The Federal Reserve calls the first four numbers the Federal Reserve Processing Symbol. The first two digits within this symbol reveal which of the 12 Federal Reserve Districts the bank resides in. For example, 03 represents Philadelphia and 12 is designated for San Francisco. The last two digits of the symbol are for identifying the regional processing center and its location.
The second main section consists of digits five through eight and they are the numbers that are assigned to your bank, which in this case is Regions Bank. The final section is the last digit, which is called the “check digit” because it’s created using a special algorithm and works to ensure the entire routing number is valid.
Different Routing Numbers for Wire Transfers
Many financial institutions choose to use a separate routing number for domestic and international wire transfers and Regions Bank is one of them. When making a Regions Bank wire transfer, you’ll need to supply the bank’s name, the routing number 062005690, your name and account number and the following bank address:
1900 Fifth Avenue North
Birmingham, AL 35203
You’ll need to use this address for wire transfers even if you bank at a different location. For international wire transfers, you’ll also need to supply an additional code. This code is called the SWIFT code and it can be made up of numbers and letters. Regions Bank uses the SWIFT code UPNBUS44.
