Swift Codes of Savings Banks or Thrift Banks

By Nora
You need a Swift code if you use a wire transfer to transfer money from one bank to another bank, particularly for international money transfers.

A Swift code is a unique identifier code for any bank in the world that conducts wire transfers.

What is a Routing No.?
In the Philippines, a Routing No. is usually used for routing cheques. It's the number on the top right corner of the cheque. It's R/T No. It's the code of the branch issuing the cheque.

In the U.S., a Routing No. is also used on cheques or other negotiable instruments. It's a 9-digit number on the bottom left corner of the cheque. It indicates the location of the issuing bank. It's sometimes called ABA routing no. or routing transit number or RTN.
