Here’s How To Find Your Santander Bank Routing Number

Finding the routing number for Santander Bank can be difficult. I’m here to help! Here’s how to find your Santander Bank Routing number.

When I turned 16, my mom helped me open a Fleet Bank savings account so I could deposit money from my first part-time job.

Eventually, my Fleet Bank account converted into a Sovereign Bank account during a 1999 divestiture plan.

Then, my Sovereign Bank account transformed into a Santander Bank account in 2008 when Banco Santander purchased Sovereign.

That means that there are a huge number of different ABA routing numbers from all the merges and acquisitions. If you don’t have a personal check laying around (yes Millennials, people still use checks 🙂 ), it can get tricky if you need to know your routing number.

If you’re looking for your Santander Bank routing number, I can help you find it using one of three different ways:

  • Look up your routing number by state (see the list below)
  • Show you how to find your routing number on your personal checks if you have one
  • Call Santander Bank customer service and ask them for your routing number

Do you know your bank account number?

  • If your bank account number has 10 digits, the bank routing number is 231372691

I happen to memorize my bank account number, so this is an easy way for me to find out what my routing number is.

Finding The Routing Number On Your Check

If you have a personal check handy, then it’s easy to get your ABA routing number.

How to read a personal check

At the lower left-hand corner of the check, there are a bunch of numbers separated by |: icons. Those |: icons or symbols are from the BankerScriber MICR font. It’s for computers to read and not part of the routing number.

The first nine-digit number is your bank routing number. The ABA routing number is always going to be nine digits.

If you’re curious, the numbers next to the routing number is the bank account number and the last group of numbers after that is the check number.

Contact Santander Bank For Your Routing Number

    • If your bank account number has 11 digits, the bank routing number is 011075150
