If you have a Regions 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 Regions any time at 800-734-4667 to find the routing number for your account. If you are at all confused about which number to use, you should consider calling Regions Bank because using the right number could mean the difference between your money going into the right or wrong account.
What Is a Regions Routing Number?
Routing numbers were created more than a century ago by the American Bankers Association as a way to identify federal- and state-chartered banks in transactions. That’s why they’re also known as ABA numbers. The number is assigned by the Federal Reserve, and no two banks have the same routing number.
Many smaller and online-only financial institutions have only one routing number, but bigger banks that operate across multiple states usually have multiple routing numbers. Regions Bank is an example, with customers in different states being assigned different routing numbers.
You’ll need to use your Regions routing number when you’re signing up for direct deposit. If you’re worried about unauthorized transfers and purchases, you can sign up for Regions Bank’s LockIt service to protect your account.
Understanding Your Regions Bank Routing Number
Each routing number is broken down into three main sections. The first section is comprised of four digits and is called the Federal Reserve Processing Symbol. The first two digits within this symbol identify which of the 12 Federal Reserve Districts the bank resides in. For example, 03 represents Philadelphia and 12 represents San Francisco. The last two digits of the symbol identify the regional processing center and its location.
The second section, made up of the next four digits, identifies the specific bank. The final section is the last digit, which is called the “check digit.” 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 number for domestic and international wire transfers, and Regions Bank is one of them. When making a Regions Bank wire transfer, the routing number is 062005690, and international wire transfer routing number is UPNBUS44. You’ll supply the bank’s name, your name and account number, and the following bank address:
1900 Fifth Avenue North
Birmingham, AL 35203
You’ll use this address for wire transfers even if you bank at a different location.
For international wire transfers, you’ll use a SWIFT code instead of a routing number. Regions Bank uses the SWIFT code UPNBUS44. Here’s a quick look at different wire transfer numbers at Regions:
