The Truist routing number is 061000104 — but before you use that number, keep in mind that Truist was formed by a merger of SunTrust Bank and BB&T Bank, so your routing number may be different.
In 2019, SunTrust Bank and BB&T Bank merged to form Truist, becoming the sixth largest commercial bank in the United States at the time. Truist offers a range of banking services from personal to business, including deposit accounts, wealth management and loans.
What Is a Truist Routing Number?
A routing number is a nine-digit number that determines where your money goes when it is transferred between bank accounts in the U.S. They are also called ABA numbers.
Using the right number is very important, since the wrong one will end up with your direct deposit, check or ACH transfer going to the wrong bank. Keep in mind that your Truist routing number may match a routing number from SunTrust — which is 061000104, the same as the Truist routing number — or BB&T, which had different routing numbers for each state it served.
The BB&T routing numbers can be found here:
|State||BB&T Routing Number||State||BB&T Routing Number|
|District of Colombia||054001547||Ohio||042102267|
|New Jersey||031204710||West Virginia||051503394|
What Routing Numbers Mean
The nine digits in a routing number each correspond to an identifying attribute.
The first four digits are used to identify the Federal Reserve district and the bank’s location, and the following four digits identify the specific bank, like Truist. The final digit, the “check digit” is used to help prevent fraud and validify the entire number.
How To Find Your Truist Routing Number
Finding out what your routing number is can be frustrating with just one bank. Adding the complications involved in merging two banks makes it that much harder.
You can find your Truist routing number in a few different ways: contacting Truist, looking at a check or bank statement or logging into your account online. If you’re unsure that you have the right routing number, it’s important to contact Truist at 844-487-8478, because your money might end up in the wrong account if you have the wrong routing number.
Finding Your Routing Number on a Check
Routing numbers are located at the bottom of your checks — there are three sets of numbers, often on the bottom left of the check, but sometimes closer to the middle. The first nine digits in this string of numbers is the routing number.
The following digits are your account number and the check number.
Truist Routing Number for International Wire Transfers
If you need to receive money from an international transfer to your Truist account, you’ll want to provide the sender with the Truist SWIFT code, as well as your account number.
What Is a SWIFT Code?
A SWIFT code is an 8 to 11 digit series of letters and numbers used to identify a bank for international money transfers.
The first four characters are the bank’s code, the next two characters are the country code and the following two characters signify the location of the bank’s headquarters. The final three characters are optional and identify the location of a specific bank branch.
The SWIFT code for Truist is SNTRUS3A — sometimes you’ll find XXX at the end, which indicates that Truist does not have specific branch codes within its SWIFT code.
